ilesa_forum“The ERS Board makes important decisions about our healthcare benefits and our pension plan. We need Board members that will work to ensure the stability of the plan and not go along with shifting costs to employees and retirees. I would be proud to represent the interests of frontline state employees on the Board, and would work with current Board members to protect and improve our benefits.”
