No quick answers to long-term pension reform question
PRINCETON — Retired teachers need to become informed and contact their legislators when it comes to pending pension reform legislation, according to John Flaherty, legislative chairman for the Illinois Retired Teachers Association (IRTA).
Flaherty was guest speaker at Thursday’s meeting of the Bureau County IRTA at the Princeton Public Library, with about 20 members present.
According to Flaherty, the IRTC has 35,000 members, but only 17,000 of them have signed up for the Voter Voice email service to keep them informed of issues which affect them. And, much fewer than the 17,000 actually contact their legislators if they have a concern to voice, he said.
