Employees Retirement System – Board of Trustees – ELECTION 2017



“The ERS Board makes important decisions about our health care 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.
If elected, I would be proud to represent the interests of frontline state employees on the Board, and would work with current Board member Ilesa Daniels to improve our benefits and to protect our pensions.”

Keeping our ERS funds strong!

Jackie will push for increased state contributions to our health care plans and pension fund and support continued responsible investing to strengthen our pension fund.

Fighting for what we deserve!

She will oppose attempts to convert our pension plan to a 401(k) style plan and opposes the new high-deductible, consumer-driven health plans or other schemes that only serve to undermine our benefits.

Listening to the needs of workers!

Accessible to assist any state employee with health care and pension issues, Jackie will be the voice of front-line state employees on the board.
