Respecting law enforcement and first responders takes more than words. That includes protecting promised benefits like pensions. Last year we saw attempts to “reform” the pension system which were thinly veiled attacks by many of the politicians that claim to respect public safety workers.
Not only is it disrespectful to those who risk their lives to keep our community safe, but it’s simply bad policy that leads experienced professionals to leave the field. As Representative I will never support legislation that reduces benefits.
