Brothers and sisters,
Today, Local 2881 pledged $1950 to Ted Siedle’s latest crowd-funding effort to raise funds to investigate the real estate investment portion of our pension fund. See the Kickstarter page for more information.
Another interesting article that was published today is an article on RIFuture.org. The author lays out an argument for using the RICO Act as the basis for investigating potential misconduct with our pension funds. It’s fascinating and you can find it here: http://www.rifuture.org/why-wait-for-the-feds-when-ag-kilmartin-can-use-the-rico-act-against-raimondos-pension-scheme.html.
Lastly, Governor Raimondo revealed her budget for Fiscal Year 2017, which can be found and dissected at the Governor’s web page at the following links:
