Secure Futures Colorado is working to promote what they call an urgent need for major reform of Colorado's public pension system. The Public Employee's Retirement Association (PERA) is set up under the "old-school" style pension plan, which is currently $23 billion in debt.
We'll talk with Eric Sondermann, a public affairs and media consultant working with the Secure Futures Colorado Initiative, about concerns regarding lack of solvency, as well as how changes in career paths impact the approach to funding today's pension plans.
Eric will explain why he feels PERA is a fundamentally unfair and outdated model that creates winners and losers based on the wrong metrics and makes public sector careers less attractive to the future workforce.
An important conversation for both public employees and the tax payers who fund PERA. Listen to Connect & Collaborate, LIVE at 4:00 PM on Denver's Money Talk 1690 AM.
