Cathy Burner for ORTA Executive Director

As I understand it, this is not an elected position; the ORTA board makes the decision. I do not have any contact information for this group. Maybe it's on the ORTA website. KBB
Note from John Curry: Cathy Burner has my vote. She was fed up with ORTA previously and....rightly so! Godspeed, Cathy!

Subject: RHJ on: Fw: Fw: A call for the resignation of the Executive Director of ORTA

To all retired educators:
It is absolutely essential that we strongly support Cathy Burner for ORTA Executive Director. Back in 2000, she was one of the first of us to initiate action on the misbehaviors of some OhSTRS officials. She has been active in Ohio politics and is known throughout the state. She has followed OhSTRS activities for many years and has the experience and qualifications for the position of ORTA Director. In replacing Ann Hanning, she is our best hope for real retiree representation.

Thank you for writing the note to Ann Hanning.  I agree with you, it is time for change!!  As you may remember, I was being groomed for the ORTA Executive Director position. I resigned from the Assistant Executive Director position due to the pressure from the membership with little to no board acknowledgement of these issues. In my opinion the pressing issues demand ORTA board/leadership action. You astutely pointed out the need for action in your note to Ann.  Let us pray she heard you.
Be great,
