Cathy Burner to Gov. Strickland: Please appoint Dave Speas to the Ohio Retirement Oversight Committee

From Cathy Burner, May 7, 2007
Subject: ***NOW is the time to write letters for Dave Speas***

May 6, 2007
The Honorable Governor Strickland
Riffe Center, 30th Floor
77 South High Street
Columbus OH 43215-6108

Dear Governor Strickland:

It has been said, “A leader is born not made”, Governor Strickland you are a person the people of Ohio believes lives up to that statement. This summer you will be appointing many people to important positions on Boards of Directors. One Committee the retired community from public positions holds dear is the Ohio Retirement Oversight Committee. I would like to recommend an Ohio leader for the open seat on the Ohio Retirement Oversight Committee, Mr. Dave Speas. Dave has been a long time resident of Springfield. He is well known in the education community of that area both as a teacher and a School Board member. Dave is tireless in his community advocacy as he works in his retirement with the at-risk youth directing an after school program. Dave has applied for the open position on the Retirement Oversight Committee and has submitted a complete resume. I would like to point out a few of the highlights on that resume that would make him highly qualified for the position. Dave has been a District Director and Western Area Vice President with the Ohio Retired Teachers Association this organization has chapters in all 88 Ohio Counties. Dave has also served on the Ohio State Teachers Pension Board, Ohio STRS.

As a 2004 Democratic Candidate for the Ohio House and the former Assistant Executive Director of The Ohio Retired Teachers Association it is with great zeal that I recommend Dave for this important committee.

Thank you for your untiring pursuit of seeking Ohio Leaders to fill these important appointments.
