Letter: PERS a lifeline for correctional officers

Greg Clouser, a corrections corporal in Hermiston, Oregon, shared how important a secure retirement is for him and his family.

“So why risk our families, our health and our lives? Because traditionally this has been a secure job with consistent pay and secure benefits. We knew that if we came to work and did our part that we could support our families and have a secure retirement. Today’s pension is much lower than those in the past, but it’s better than no pension at all. Now, Mr. Buehler is proposing a raid on my retirement.” East Oregonian, September 4, 2018.
