Pensions were, and still are, a ‘promise’
Hats off to Mick Kazmerski for his letter on Feb. 8 titled “Looking for fair coverage on pensions.”
In SVM’s adjacent editorial of the same date, you blast the legislators and governor for not doing anything to solve the state pension funding crisis, rightfully without implying blame on the state’s employees and existing retirees.
As Mick clearly states, and I believe it started more than 30 years ago, past governors and members of the General Assembly blatantly began siphoning money from the state retirement system’s budgeted funding obligations to pay for their more politically motivated pet projects throughout the state.
