Noland, who sits on Quinn’s pension panel told pensioners, “I’m on your side.”
Elgin’s Democratic State Senator Mike Noland couldn’t figure out why pensioners would be demonstrating outside his office.
Noland, endorsed by Jonah Edelman’s Stand For Children, also is a member of the Governor’s pension commission. The panel is recommending raising the retirement age of teachers to 67, raising our TRS contribution by 3%, reducing COLA increases and even taxing pensioners income for the first time.
Stand for Children contributed over $200,000 to primary campaigns in March. Noland was among 11 representative and senatorial candidates that received checks from SFC.
Why would pensioners hold a protest at Noland’s office?
