No more PERS cuts
We did a lot this past session and I’m proud of all that we accomplished, including putting $1 Billion in additional funds into schools. However, it took years of budget cuts and disinvestment in public services for us to get where we are today and we cannot fix everything in one session or one day. I wish it were that easy.
I am a teacher, my kids are in public schools and of course I want more money for schools, but attacking retirees with additional cuts to PERS, on top of what we passed this already this session, is not the way to go. That’s why I’m voting no.
I want to hear from the people I represent. Add your name to our petition calling for no more cuts to PERS and if you'd like to share your story on how these PERS cuts will affect you, I’ll bring your stories with me to Salem next Monday and make sure your voice is heard.
