Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) Executive Director Tim Lee shared important talking points with TRTA members yesterday during his weekly live event on Facebook and YouTube.
The points, which can be downloaded here, are a great tool for members to use when communicating with their Texas State Senators and Representatives about the importance of passing a much-needed cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) for our public education retirees during this legislative session.
The points include useful facts about inflation, the positive impact Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) retirees have on the state economy, and how the TRS system here compares to that of systems in other states.
TRTA is working hard at the Texas Capitol every day, and also relies on the grassroots advocacy efforts of our members to help spread the message to every legislator that TRS retirees need a raise!
Members, please use the talking points when reaching out to your legislators, and be sure to follow Tim Lee’s 10 helpful tips for the 88th Legislative Session.
Remember to BELIEVE! Believe we can make a difference collectively: you as a member, your fellow retirees, the TRTA Capitol lobbying team and staff, and every TRTA volunteer at the local, district, and state level.
Thank you for being a member of TRTA and supporting issues that affect retired Texas public school personnel.
