You have no doubt by now heard the news that the Governor has withdrawn his ill-conceived initiative to privatize public pensions.  However, since he plans to continue with this effort once he fixes the death benefit flaw, we need to let him know that we will still oppose his efforts.


1)  Please call the Governor’s office in San Diego at 619-525-4641.  Tell them:  “I’m calling to urge the Governor to stop his plan to privatize our public pensions.”

3)  Please print out, sign and mail or fax (619-525-4640) the attached letter to Governor Schwarzenegger pointing out how his plan will irreparably harm the public sector.

That’s all it takes!  Be vigilant­be active!

Please forward this email to all of your friends, neighbors, family members-anyone with a phone will do!  It is essential that we spread the word as broadly as possible outside of our immediate education community. The Governor needs to feel as though all of the general public, not just us “special interests” think his proposals are the wrong solution for California.  Next week we will send out another message for you to act on.
