Right now, Florida's pension fund is managed by a committee of three elected officials - the Governor, the Attorney General, and me. If I weren't on the board, no one with business expertise or professional investment experience would have any say in how the $112 billion Florida pension fund was being managed. Who knows who we'll have making these decisions in 5, 10, or 50 years? We need a long-term, responsible solution. That's why, just this week, I proposed a reform plan to provide more oversight and accountability by adding non-political experts, financial professionals, outside auditors, and a pensioners' representative to the state pension fund board. But I was voted down 2 to 1. So now I'm asking for you to lend your voice to the fight. <http://e2ma.net/go/2666270902/2425917/89575128/35093/goto:https://app.e2ma. net/app/view:Join/signupId:66931/acctId:35093> Sign my petition now: Show the politicians in Tallahassee that you support my plan to bring real reform to Florida's pension fund, and protect our investments for years to come! When I first offered my reform plan, Bill McCollum's response was "If it isn't broke, don't fix it." Well, that kind of thinking is unacceptable to me: Leadership is about fixing the problems before they become financial crises, before they devastate folks' retirement funds, and before they put the state in financial jeopardy. Necessary reform is being blocked by career politicians who would rather protect their own political interests than your retirement. It's outrageous - and we have to put a stop to it. But to win this fight, I need you standing with me. The politicians in Tallahassee need to know that we are watching, that we demand change, and that we will hold them accountable. <http://e2ma.net/go/2666270902/2425917/89575130/35093/goto:https://app.e2ma. net/app/view:Join/signupId:66931/acctId:35093> Sign my petition now: Support my plan to bring real reform to Florida's pension fund, and protect our investments for years to come!
