The Prez Says:
The election is over, the new governor has been sworn in, and now we will see how he fares as a state leader. So far he has restated his promise to get rid of the PARCC Test. Something that will make actives very happy. He also heard NJEA when they said that an educator should be the Commissioner of Education and has proposed an educator for that position.
Now you might be saying but what has he done for me lately. That is why we need to be vigilant and watch what is going on in Trenton. Make sure you listen to what is going on in the legislature and to what comes out of the governor’s office. We need to carefully watch to see what Governor Murphy proposes to secure our pensions and benefits, also a campaign promise he made. It is up to all of us to do what is necessary to insure we continue to receive our pensions and benefits.
I want to remind you of the Drug Abuse Workshop for Seniors that we will be presenting at the end of lunch in March. If you plan to attend the workshop you must check off the box on your lunch reservation form to be a part of that workshop. Read the article on page 3 of your newsletter for more information.
I hope you have survived the winter so far and you have been able to stay hale and hardy.
