The Civilian Pension Board manages our pension system, reviews and approves disability applications and death benefits. We have the opportunity to put a Local 251 member on the board to ensure that our voice is heard. Michael is exceptionally qualified to serve on the Civilian Pension Board. From 2004-2010, Michael worked in the securities industry as a Registered Broker and Registered Investment Advisor. He has experience in investments, insurance, taxation, retirement and estate planning.
The ballots will be mailed to your home on November 1st. You must return the ballot no later than November 26th. It is vital for all members to complete and return their ballot selecting Michael Champion. We need a voice on this committee to assure the workers are treated fairly. We feel it is important to have an actual Civilian Employee on the board, not just management, and Michael Champion is the person for the job.
