Vote to protect our pensions: Full Funding – No Cuts!
VOTE FOR KAREN CHARLESTON
“The TRS Board makes important decisions about the pension plan of about 143,000 university employees as well as school district employees and others. We need Board members that will work to ensure the plan’s stability.
I would be proud to continue to represent the interests of higher education employees on the Teacher Retirement System Board and would continue to work with current Board members to protect and improve our benefits.”
VOTE: MARCH 15 – MAY 6

Keeping our TRS fund strong!
Karen will push for full state funding to meet the obligations of the TRS. She’ll fight for investment decisions made on sound economics, not politics.
Fighting for what we deserve!
Karen will strongly oppose cuts to the pension plan, raids on the pension fund, or attempts to convert our pension plans to risky 401(k) style plans. She will fight for state funding for a cost of living increase for TRS retirees.
