WE HAVE WORK TO BE DONE!
The campaign will consist of the following: a coordinated “rolling action” of blitzing the legislators and media with e-mails, Twitter messages, letters to the editor and other opinion pieces, letters and phone calls to the legislators, distributing information about pensions and funding, and lobbying with the legislators in June at the State House.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Second, continue to check our website, mercercountyretiredea.org, to find the latest news and links, and sign a pledge card that we can count on you to help in the campaign. You can also find the registration form for our luncheon on the website.
Third, encourage your friends and family to join NJREA/MCREA if they have not already done so. There’s strength in numbers.
Fourth, PLEASE provide us with your e-mail address, and ask your friends who are members to do the same. It’s the most time efficient and effective way to communicate when the information we are receiving is very “fluid” and changing rapidly. Your e-mail address will not be shared with any third parties. We can only speak with authority when we are fully knowledgable and have a current grasp on the issues.
As the governor’s approval ratings continue to spiral down, this is an opportunity to appeal to the legislators to fully fund the Chapter 78 law that they signed in 2011. Unleash your expertise and energy, and use it to maintain our well-deserved pensions!
Thanks for your time!
