State Representative Will Guzzardi.
A few weeks ago I forwarded to my State Representative Will Guzzardi articles about the cases of 500 retired teachers in Illinois who, like Ms Jeri Shanahan, are retired and who are not Medicare eligible. According to the law she doesn’t qualify for Medicare because she retired too many years ago.
Both of the two state teacher unions have been unresponsive to the situation of these former teachers and union members.
It is, in my opinion, a scandal.
Today I received the following from Representative Guzzardi:
Hey there Fred,
Thanks for sending this along. I’ve seen you post about it in the past but frankly never took the time to read it and understand it fully. Now that I have, I see why you’ve continued to write about all this. I’ll talk to Rep McDermed when we’re back in session next January — if she’s going to re-introduce her bill on this issue, I’ll sign on as chief co-sponsor; if not, I’ll introduce it myself.
Good to hear from you, and hope you guys are enjoying your summer.
