Email From Eppler

"Greetings All,
Hopefully you all received the below email from CEA. Not only is this an important topic for all teachers, but it carries a bit of extra importance to SWEA, as you will notice one of the two endorsed candidates is long time South Windsor teacher, SWEA member, and SWEA treasurer Bill Myers. Having seen the work Bill did for many years firsthand, SWEA knows what an asset for teachers he would continue to be on the State Teachers' Retirement Board. Please make it a priority to cast your vote and let your voice be heard when the upcoming opportunity presents itself.  "                       Matt
