Gov. Kasich and OH General Assembly: Release Ohio’s Government Pension Numbers!

CHICAGO – Taxpayers United of America (TUA) Vice President, Christina Tobin, called on Ohio Gov. John Kasich and the Ohio General Assembly to set the standard for transparency by releasing its government pension data.

“I have written letters to Gov. Kasich and the members of the General Assembly, urging them to change the culture of secrecy surrounding government employee pension benefit amounts. They can champion a culture of transparency to ensure honesty and integrity through unlimited public review of all taxpayer funds.”

“TUA was in Ohio last week, releasing pension estimates for government employees. The first stop was the Ohio Capitol to hand-deliver the letters. TUA held press conferences in Columbus, Youngstown, Toledo and Cleveland releasing pension estimates for state and local government employees.”

“Ohio is one of a few states that interprets its Open Records Act exception regarding personal information to include pension payments. But as long as taxpayers fund the pensions, they have a right to review them.”

“In order to have the critical dialogue about meaningful pension reforms, Ohioans need to know exactly what kind of lavish pensions their tax dollars are providing for government employees.”

 “I have asked Governor Kasich and the 129th Ohio General Assembly to take the lead in making Ohio above reproach through complete transparency with public funds.”

    NO COMMENTS?!?!?!?YOU DAMN LIBERALS!ALL you do is cry cry cry about wanting pisitoon papers every issue from every candidate . . . and when one candidate makes a BOLD step to release one, you have NO COMMENTS?!?!I am insulted.Thor, good pisitoon paper. It’s well written, and highlights the points I think we all believe. Thanks for caring about education, I know you have a personal commitment to it, and I know how much you value your education and the dedication your father had to education in this city of Cinci. . .. . . but guess what Thor. . . your pisitoon paper was a complete waste of your time. These Latte Liberals don’t vote for that, they may say the do, but they don’t know what they want.I’ll tell you what the REALLY WANT: they want to vote for the best damn campaign for HS Prom King they’ve ever seen! Get that stump speech polished President Santos and raise some more money for mail. Then after you win the Primary by 64.3% you can re-tool for the General and beat the tar out of Mean Jean and her twin sister.
