WKBN 27 First News | Pensions of Public Workers Exposed

Findings from TUA’s pension project on Youngstown, Ohio, are featured in this article at WKBN 27 First News.

A grassroots, non-profit organization is exposing the top salaries and pensions for government employees in Youngstown.

The group Taxpayers United of America made a stop in Youngstown on Tuesday during its Ohio tour. The group said it’s letting the taxpayers know where their dollars are going for these multi-million dollar pension payouts.

The state of Ohio does not release the actual pension amounts, so the organization released estimates based on salaries.

“The top of our list we have Wendy Webb. She has an estimated total pension payout of over $4.2 million. Charles Sammarone of Youngstown, Ohio, government employee. I see the mayor incumbent, $3.5 million,” said Christina Tobin, vice president of Taxpayers United of America.

The group is urging Governor John Kasich and the General Assembly to release pension figures to taxpayers.
