STRS is broken. Help us fight back!

Earlier this month, an Ohio court held that pro-teacher board member Wade Steen should be reinstated to the STRS board. The court determined Mr. Steen was wrongfully removed by the Governor last year.

 

Despite the clear facts and law of the case, the Governor's office appealed the decision... further drawing out the judicial process and delaying the much- anticipated reinstatement of Mr. Steen.

 

The court scheduled a hearing for oral arguments for Tuesday, March 26 at 10:45am in Courtroom 23B, 373 South High Street, Columbus, Ohio. The hearing is open to the public.

 

With this latest delay, it will take even more resources to fight the Governor's appeal. Will you help?

ORTA's Pension Defense Fund was created to raise the funds necessary to secure the legal and professional resources necessary to fight for pro-teacher policies and the reinstatement of pro-reform STRS board member Wade Steen.

As one Ohio newspaper editorialized, Wade is the first and most ardent voice for investment management reform in the entire state pension system. "In his more than seven years on the STRS board, Wade Steen has been an advocate for Ohio educators by fighting for transparency, accountability and change. He’s uncovered millions in hidden fees paid to Wall Street hedge funds and fought against unearned “performance” bonuses for STRS staff."

Please consider supporting this important effort, every dollar truly makes a difference.
