Government should always set the good example and provide adequate retirement benefits for the front-line and public safety workers who protect and serve our neighborhoods. I will oppose any and all efforts to reduce benefits owed to current employees. These employees accepted jobs and made decisions based on the understanding that a certain level of benefits would be available to them when they retired. We cannot and should not change the terms in the middle of their careers. I do support a two-tiered system that provides a separate system for new hires. This system can reduce costs by requiring that these new workers contribute more towards their pensions and work longer before receiving benefits.
