Letter Carrier Congressional Liaisons
Here are the COSALC representatives that are assigned to the various
Colorado Congressinal Districts.
Chairman - Legislative Committee
My name is Doug Jaynes and I am pleased to have been appointed by President Rick Byrne to be the Chair of the Legislative Committee. For those who don’t know me, I have been with the Postal Service for 30 years. Beginning at the GMF for a couple of years before switching to the Letter Carrier craft in 1995. Starting in Boulder with Ray, Lou, Jim, Dave, Bob, Barb, Sue and a host of others as leaders in the NALC from the contract to legislative issues I learned. Transferring to Greeley brought me new opportunities to grow and begin to speak for the NALC on legislative issues. I became a LCL, predecessor to today’s LCCL serving the NALC in the 4th Congressional District communicating, or at least trying to, with Rep. Marilyn Musgrave. In 2008 I was part of the release staff, working to elect a Congressional delegation that was friendly towards Letter Carriers and the Postal Service. The result was the election of Betsy Markey and a complete turnaround in attitude toward the Postal Service and Letter Carriers in the 4th CD. I have been lucky to join with fellow carriers in Washington DC in speaking to the entire Colorado Congressional delegation and closer to home across Colorado. I look forward to speaking with you, as legislation that effect Letter Carriers and the Postal Service is introduced.
Personally, I’m married to Jackie Skene, a retired carrier out of Branch 5996. We have 4 kids 3 boys and a girl, who passed away in 2019, their spouses and or significant other, 4 grand kids, and 5 grand dogs. They all keep us busy but leave just enough time to travel.
My first campaign was for George McGovern, and I have been politically active ever since. I am one of those political nerds. Anything you need please just contact me 970-396-0702
