CEA Call to Action

Reminder: Time is Running Out, Make Your Voice Heard

Dear Nancy,

Legislators are presently considering shifting the costs of teacher retirement contributions from the state to cities and towns across Connecticut. This will increase local property taxes and cut local public education funding, leading to job cuts, larger class sizes, and fewer resources.

Tell your legislators not to shift state costs onto the backs of local property owners. Contact your legislators and ask them to vote NO on any state budget that will force cities and towns to raise property taxes and destroy public education.
