Duane Tron: We need honest Board members who represent the interests of retirees
Watch the news Monday! FYI Nothing else I can say now!
My best advice?! We don't need people on OUR retirement board who are impressed with themselves, and using a board seat as a stepping stone, to enhance their Vitae, or stroke their egos.
We need people who are going to represent ALL of us. We need people who are going to do what is right and in the best interest of retirees.
I'm tired of the so-called experts, the high roller politicians, the people with impressive credentials, and on and on.
I want someone to represent us who has OUR best interests, and welfare at heart, and I want someone who is honest and will do the right thing for retirees, and for the right reasons.
Judith Fisher had fancy credentials, connections, lots of schooling, and on and on and she's a total bust! We need someone from among us who knows what's going on and what has taken place at STRS.
I'm sorry but over the years I have come to NOT trust people from academia and some sectors of Corporate America. Why? They don't live and operate in the "real" world.
The news Monday will be tied to the word, "scandal." As I have pointed out to you many times I have been quite busy working behind the scenes. I am very sorry that I can't perform miracles and it angers me that the system works so slowly! On the other hand the system still does work.
We have been battling with people I describe as "bad" people. They have done a lot of bad things and they will be removed and dislodged from positions of power and prestige over time. Note, I said over time?
The good news is the honesty, character and tenacity that people like yourself have brought to this battle. The positive news is that in the long run "good" will triumph as a result of people like you and many others who have fought and cared so passionately about this issue!
