“I am shocked and outraged that my Republican colleagues are using this lame duck session to yet again attack our hardworking residents. Legislation, up for discussion this week, would all but destroy pensions for future public employees and aggressively cut benefits for current ones. This proposal is yet another in a constant wave of attacks. This is an insult to the teachers, firefighters, police officers and other hard-working public employees who are the foundation of our communities. Their families depend upon the benefits they were promised when they signed up for the job.

“I will aggressively fight to protect the hard-earned savings of our public employees. Make your voice heard too! Call your state legislators today to urge them to join me in protecting employee benefits!”
