Dear Aides and Clerks:

One of the leaders of the fight to keep Christie from destroying your pension is municipal PERS employee representative Benjamin "Max" Hurst. He is now running for re-election to the PERS Board with the active support of Public Employee Committee of the NJ AFL-CIO and the Newark Teachers Union.

Chris Christie would love to get rid of Max, YOU can help keep him there by clicking the PERS website here!! Deadline coming up so please do this ASAP.

Please do and don't forget to SHARE
