“And we all know that an aging population of firefighters, police officers and lifeguards who can’t afford to retire isn’t best for our safety. Be fair and be safe. Refuse to sign.”

I heard this heartwarming message of concern (MP3, 500K) Tuesday morning on the Mike Slater show.
The message from our devoted public servants couldn’t be clearer: Don’t reform the pension system . . . if you value your safety.
