Interest in Serving as a PERA Trustee
Please briefly describe why you are interested in being elected to the PERA Board of Trustees.
I would like to bring my unique expertise and experience to the board governance of PERA. I find fulfillment in serving others and I am eager to do so for the next four years as I participate in important deliberations and decisions regarding the current employees and retirees of PERA employers.
Challenges/Opportunities Facing PERA
Please describe what you consider as areas of challenge/opportunity facing PERA and the Board’s role in addressing these issues.
There is great opportunity to work with the State Legislature on sustainability of PERA. The financial future of current employees and retirees is, in large part, in the hands of management and the board of PERA. I accept this challenge and look forward to being part of the solution to successful navigation of economic influences.
