Elections for legislative seats and statewide constitutional offices are soon upon us. The primaries for these seats/offices are set for June 5, 2018; primary run-offs for July 17, 2018; and the general election for November 6, 2018. If you care about your pension, get involved in the primaries and ask candidates how they stand on the RSA, or you will let those who want to gut the RSA win! Do not ask me, “What happened to my excellent program?” if you did not vote, or if you elect people that want to cut your benefits because you failed to ask these candidates questions about supporting the RSA. There’s a lot of turnover this election cycle. Twelve of 35 state senate seats and 26 of 105 state representative seats are open. This means 38 new legislators in 2019. That many new faces can change the direction of the legislative body for better or worse. Will the new members push for “pension reform,” or will they focus on keeping the RSA strong in its current form? It is more important than ever for you to vote and be informed about the candidates. Make sure you know where candidates stand on retirement issues. Do they understand the importance of your retirement benefit? Do they support your current defined benefit plan for public and education employees? If not, do something about it. It is just as important to support and thank the elected officials who have supported the RSA over the years and have fully funded your pension system every year.
