Miranda Illoldi, Editor
My name is Miranda Illoldi. I started my postal career at the beginning of 2016, after an arduous application process which began in November 2015. My first office was Oakley, Kansas, at the intersection of I 70 and US 83, in the middle of NW Kansas. I was the second CCA in an office with one full time regular route and an auxiliary route. This meant I was lucky to get 20 hours a week. I quickly learned that hustling to get loaned out to other offices helped me get hours. However survival required that I work a second job.
In December of 2016 on the 20th day, a nasty slushy roads type day, I set out to deliver the mail. As I was passing a mail box, on the way to my park point, the slush pulled me sideways. I turned my wheel and removed my foot from the brake and the gas. Nothing worked, and the slush pulled me into a curbside box. The box connected with the bottom side mirror and slammed it back into the truck, breaking the mirror. No damage was done to the box. I called my postmaster immediately and she told me she had no clue what to do and just keep delivering and she would call me back. Long story short, after another hour they called me back to the office and I was placed on emergency leave. My boss said that termination was a possibility. I immediately found and contacted my NBA office and with them and a steward from a couple hours away I was able to save my job and get paid for the two days I was out on emergency leave. Thus began my involvement with the NALC.
I have transferred twice and thus knocked myself out of the two mass conversions to PTF, so I am still a CCA, going on my fifth year in another month. I am a shop steward in Ulysses, KS, and our branch Trustee. I attended the 2019 National Rap Session in Denver in August as a delegate from branch 1412. I look forward to working on this publication and in Congressional District 1 to further the cause of the NALC and protect the USPS as a federal institution and work toward causes that are mutually beneficial to the USPS and the letter carrier craft.
Personally, I am a wife and a mother of 4 natural children and 4 step children and bonus mom to 3 foreign exchange students now. In my spare time I like to read, have a beer or two, and go camping and fishing with my family.
