SignOn.org – Governor Quinn! LEAVE TEACHER PENSIONS ALONE!

28 Apr

We’d like to collect 33,000 teacher signatures on a petition asking the governor to rethink his pension proposal. What is the significance of 33,000 signatures? Governor Quinn won the last election by only 33,000 votes. Illinois teacher unions endorsed him and supported his campaign. We hope to send the message that he might not be sitting in the governor’s seat today without the support of Illinois teachers. Please pass the link on to other teachers in your district.

To be delivered to: Governor Pat Quinn

Governor Quinn! Your teacher pension proposals are not fair. They are unconstitutional. They do not solve the pension crisis. It is a revenue problem, not a benefit problem! Governor Quinn! LEAVE OUR PENSIONS ALONE!

Sign the petition – Governor Quinn! LEAVE TEACHER PENSIONS ALONE!.
