Bus Op Sam Johnson, 97, Gets Birthday Wish!

TWU Local 100 President Richard Davis was there to click Brother Johnson's seat belt as he gripped the bus wheel and shared memories with his extended family of union brothers and sisters alongside his children, grandchildren, and great-grands, who came along for the ride.

He said that he wished he could take the bus out for a spin, but that wasn't in the cards. What was offered were greetings and congratulations from both labor and management, including President Davis, NYCT Buses President Frank Annicaro, and others. Retirees Assocation staffers along with Director James Manzella serenaded him with both Happy Birthday songs, and chanted: "Are you One? Are you 97?" Let's do it again next year!
