Politicians Should Keep Hands off Pension Funds

I am a retired Barre Town school employee. I understand the governor and some legislators are pressuring our elected State Treasurer to sell off fossil fuel investments in our pension fund. Here is what I think about that. Let experts like Treasurer Beth Pearce pick the investments, not the politicians. Frankly they haven’t done such a good job paying the state’s bills, I think the Treasurer can do a better job helping me pay mine.

And really, who’s money is it, the State’s or the pensioners? It’s ours of course, so hands off, politicians.

I wish to express my thanks and appreciation to my Barre Town representatives, Robert LaClair and Topper McFaun, for voting to protect the pension fund in a recent vote on this issue in the House of Representatives.
