All CEA-Retired members are invited to join hundreds of their retired colleagues at the Retired Teachers Lobby Day at the State Capitol in Hartford on April 29. CEA-Retired members will be joined by their retired colleagues from AFT Connecticut and the Association of Retired Teachers of Connecticut to meet face-to-face with legislators and speak about issues of importance to retirees and active teachers.
“Last year, more than 30 CEA-R members participated in the lobby day event and made a real difference in getting important legislation passed exempting a portion of teacher pensions from state income tax,” said CEA-R President Gloria Brown. “This year, we hope more members will join us and help get our message out to legislators.”
The agenda includes an educational session starting at 10 a.m., followed by one-on-one meetings with legislators. The day will conclude with a luncheon meeting where retirees will hear directly from more than a dozen legislators.
CEA-Retired members can contact their county representative if they would like to attend.
