why you should care

this affects all of us

The Pension System is estimated to run out of money by 2027, meaning future retirements are in jeopardy. This might even be an optimistic assessment because its based on a rate of return on investments that the Pension System has not achieved for several years.

The City's plan will fully fund the Pension without raising taxes by contributing and additional $1 billion over 30 years, within the budget. We need your support to make this happen.
