Retirees: Want to complain about the irregularities of the bogus election you were just put through?

Many retirees feel they were duped by the deliberately deceitful language used in the ballots for the 2013 STRS board election. You can write to the members of the STRS board, as they are ultimately responsible for it. One address will go to all: E-mail addresses for individual board members may be found here.

You can also write STRS Executive Director Mike Nehf (who told you ON THE BALLOT to "vote for two": You can write to Nick Treneff, who is in charge of communications and danced around the questions regarding that ballot language every time: You can write to the ORSC (Ohio Retirement Study Council, which oversees all five state pension systems; E-mail:; Web: and demand this election be carefully reviewed and that measures be enacted to ensure such blatant treachery against retirees by their own pension board and staff NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN.
You can always contact state legislators, too. They need to know what's going on at STRS. And don't forget your local newspaper. There are plenty of people who might find this whole situation very interesting.
If you'd like to share your thoughts with Dennis Leone, the lone target of all the duplicity from your STRS board and staff, you can do so here: By the way, if you do write to the board and staff, don't expect a reply. They have absolutely no interest in discussing this issue with you. They just want to control your $$$ and make sure you don't get the full benefits you are supposed to have.
