Teacher/Education Advocates to Debunk Pension Foes at Two Wed. Events

The Sacramento Press Club is hosting two events on Wednesday that will give teacher and school employee advocates  the chance to debunk the unfounded assertions of those who would take away their secure retirements under the guise of  "pension reform."

At noon, David Low of the California School Employees Association and a key member of the Californians for Retirement Security, takes on Marcia Fritz, president of CA Foundation for Fiscal Responsibility, a group aiming to convert secure pension systems into 401k plans that enrich Wall Street at the expense of public employees' retirement security.  The event is set to take place in the 15th floor conference room of 1201 K St. The contact is the Press Club's Brian Joseph 916 233 9681.

At 6:30 p.m. at the Sacramento  Bee's offices -- at 21st and Q Street in Sacramento -- pension experts, including California Teachers Association's Jennifer Baker, California State Teachers' Retirement System's  Ed Derman, and Legislative Analyst Office's Jason Sisney, will serve on a panel width Fritz that focuses on the topic of "Who Will Pay for Teacher Pensions."  Educators are encouraged to attend this free event. RSVP to Brian Joseph at 916.233.9681.
