Alma G. Roper
Executive V.P. Local 1549
“My priority is to help all members, while maintaining the council’s highest level of integrity and accountability,” she said. Roper began her civil service career in 1989 as a Police Communications Technician. In 1998, she was promoted to Supervising PCT. As chair of the local’s PCT/SPCT Chapter, she played a major role in Local 1549’s successful lobbying for a state law that eliminated the age requirement for 911 workers to qualify for a full pension.
Roper is passionately fighting to stop outsourcing at 311; keep Medicaid workers in their jobs in the face of a takeover; promote civilianization at uniformed agencies and upgrades at Dept. of Buildings, and help at 911, where the Police Dept. recently agreed to hire more staff in order to abusive overtime.
