Pension reform

Deputy City Manager Rick Naimark explains one of the scenarios for pension reform during a public meeting Tuesday, Sept. 18.

I am in agreement with Phoenix Councilman Sal DiCiccio on pension reform (“Why we need real pension reform — you decide,” AFN, Sept. 13). DiCiccio was elected to represent “We the People.” Politician’s beware because being the fair minded Sal, he will not overlook his and his peers’ pensions. Let’s get them in the news as to how long it takes for an elected person to gain a pension, and list those pensions in the AFN.

Whom pays for these expensive perks that also include city cars, gas, health insurance, sick pay, vacations and holidays?

Let’s not forget the fire volunteers whom were left out of Arizona’s pension plan.

God bless and protect our public safety brothers and sisters.
