State Legislation

Bob Martin, Chair

As an Assistant Inspector in Charge in the Washington Division. I started with the US Postal Service as a Part Time Flexible (PTF) employee and performed clerk and letter carrier duties. In April 1985, I became a US Postal Inspector and was assigned to the Richmond VA Division field office. While at Richmond, I worked Internal Crimes and Workers’ Compensation Fraud cases. In September 1989, I transferred to the Washington Division Field Office where continued to work those assignments. In 1991 I was promoted to a program manager position at National Headquarters where I worked workers’ compensation fraud programs, aviation security, and National Security assignments. In June 2006, I was promoted to Assistant Inspector in Charge and supervised teams of postal inspectors in Washington DC, Baltimore MD and Richmond VA, including the Inspection Service team assigned to investigate the anthrax attacks against the Postal Service and members of Congress.
I became a member of NARFE after being challenged by a fellow postal inspector who is still active in Northern Virginia today. I am a member of Chapter 90, Fredericksburg where I am the Federal and State Legislative Chair. In November 2018, I became the State Legislative Chair and look forward to working I retired from the United States Postal Inspection Service in October, 2008with VFN NARFE members to have state legislation passed to benefit Federal employees and retirees.

I will work to keep you informed regarding issues important to VFN NARFE members and bring your attention to Virginia Commonwealth legislation that is important to our members.  As the administrator of the VFN NARFE PAC, I will seek your opinion regarding candidates we should support with our dollars and ensure that we have a real voice in the state legislature.

Please check the VFN web site for important updates as they occur in relation to our state legislative priorities. I am planning to develop a network of Area and Chapter Legislative Chairs/Contacts so we we can respond to legislation important to VFN NARFE quickly.

If you have any comments, questions or suggestions to pass on, please feel free to contact me at or at 202-255-3320 (leave a voicemail if I don’t answer!).
