PRE 65 RETIREES AND ANY OTHER ACRE MEMBERS INTERESTED
The below is a statement put out by MPA John Covington who is one of the folks working hard on this referendum.
|Oct 3 was a great victory for current officers, retirees, and the city of Memphis. I know everyone is very excited as well they should be. I also know that many of you have questions. Let me just tell you where we are at the moment. The Referendum has been successfully passed. We are wrapping up the last bit of campaign business and are putting together a committee tasked with working out details, meeting with the city, and overseeing the implementation of what the citizens of Memphis voted FOR. Every indication we have had from the city is that they are ready in good faith to work with us and ensure that the will of the people is carried out. This process will not happen overnight. There are a lot of moving parts and it is extremely important that we take our time and get this right. I can ensure you as this process gets rolling we will be putting out updates.|
I also know there is some anxiety out there and I’m hearing some misinformation being spread in the form of gloom and doom rumors. Let me be clear. As of this moment, I am confident in the process going forward. If any issues arise we are prepared to address them quickly and decisively, but as stated earlier I see no reason for alarm.
If you have any questions I’d rather you call the MPA or email, text or call me personally then get worked up over a rumor or faulty information.
