Private Investigations

In yesterday's post "Purple Haze" I gave examples of PERS retirees who got (or didn't get) the "letter" when, according to PERS' own listed criteria, they shouldn't have received them. Oregon AFSCME is particularly interested in hearing directly from retirees who retired BEFORE April 1, 2000, did NOT receive a lump sum settlement, and who received a "Notice of Board Action" late last week or early next week. If you meet all these criteria, please send an email to Mary Botkin (botkin@oregonafscme.com) or Don Loving (dloving@oregonafscme.com) detailing your receipt of this letter. If you received the same "letter" *and* you retired after 4/1/05, you should also notify either Mary or Don.

By the time most read this post, the "hit counter" will have crossed the 300,000 mark -- an amazing feat for a blog in existence for 11 months. Thank you again for your faithful readership, and for your continued communication of your stories to me. While I occasionally get access to public information before it is made public, the most interesting stories right now are those that come from readers.
