The pension war is not over, a battle has been lost. The Governor will probably sign off on this bill. It will end up in the courts where the constitutionality will be argued. We must talley our forces. We must stay active and grow stronger.
To take an active role as a FirstResponderPensionFacts supporter there are a few little things you need to do. First, LIKE us on Facebook. You will then get updates as we post them. Second, send Facebook friend requests to your Illinois state representatives and senators. They love to have their constituents friend them and never turn anyone down. You will notice that many of these representatives closely watch their own pages and update and respond regularly. They want to know how you think. Facebook saves them a fortune on polling. Third, when you see an item on our page you like select SHARE under the article. This shares it to your Facebook page and lets your elected representatives know how you feel. The more often something gets shared to them the more likely they are to pay attention to it. Fourth, call your representatives at the We Are One line 888-412-6570. Let them know you vote and will pay attention to how they vote on the issues you care about. Don’t be shy. It won’t get you anywhere. If you don’t help yourself no one else will.
