To all:
I sent my Akron Beacon Journal a "thank you" for their supportive comments in their editorial: "Pension protection". I will keep my life-long subscription with them.

Now....if all public servants would do that same and "cc" their friendly local state legislators of their intent as Kathie did....we would get some attention, wouldn't we? But then...educators don't want to make waves, do they? Well.....it's about time they did! We have over a million retired/active public servants in this state. Just think what we could do if we all banded together and sent a message to our legislators (and news media)! Will we soon have be screaming, "Take Back Our Pensions?"
Please pass this email on to a retired or active firefighter, state patrolman, county employee, public school educator, public school employee, municipal employee, township employee or anybody else you know who contributes to Ohio's five public pension plans: Ohio Public Employees Retirement System, State Teachers Retirement System, State Employees Retirement System, Police and Fire Retirement System and the Ohio Highway Patrol Retirement System. Together, our voices will be heard! We cannot afford to stand idly by and watch our retirement systems be trashed.
