Please Join Me for a Special Town Hall Meeting on PA’s Pension Crisis
You are invited and encouraged to join me for a special informational town hall meeting focusing on Pennsylvania’s public pension crisis and the urgent need for reform on Thursday, Aug. 7, at 7 p.m. at the Middlesex Township Building, located at 350 N. Middlesex Road in Carlisle
Rising pension costs and liabilities are devouring an increasing amount of the budgets of our local school districts and the Commonwealth. Failure to act on a meaningful solution will only hurt our hard-working taxpayers and put the retirees who depend upon these pensions at risk.
During the meeting, we will hear from state Rep. Mike Tobash (R-Schuylkill/Berks), author of a leading pension reform plan actively under consideration in the House that would enroll new employees of the State Employees’ Retirement System (SERS) or Public School Employees’ Retirement System (PSERS) in a combination of 401(k)-type and traditional pension plan. Benefits of current employees and retirees would not be affected under the Tobash “hybrid” plan.
The event will feature an update on the pension crisis and proposed solutions, including the Tobash plan, and will be followed by an open discussion where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and offer input.
