Back The Blue
Mr. Mayor and Members of the Memphis City Council,
I value public safety and the protection it offers myself, my family and fellow citizens of Memphis. I do not support using the defined contribution plan proposed by this administration and want you to recognize my concern.
Changing city employees’ benefits will drastically affect the livelihood of officers who protect me on a daily basis. I value their hard work and dedication to safety in our community. I believe that those who put their lives on the line for my safety deserve to be treated fairly.
Memphis police officers value and uphold the truth and believe in partnership among all city officials and employees.
We have the responsibility to continue to fund their current benefits and retirement plan because they take on the responsibility of protecting us.
Please work to ensure our city leadership recognizes the importance of officers’ pensions. Please do all that you can to assist in creating a fair and honest pension proposal. The citizens of Memphis do not want to suffer from the unfair financial practices of the city’s leadership.
I ask that you place yourself in the shoes of Memphis police officers. Please ask yourself how important benefits are when it comes to taking care of yourself, your family and loved ones.
Thank you for your support of our police officers. As a citizen of the great City of Memphis, I take pride in supporting elected officials who support safe communities. My concern for public safety will be reflected during the next election cycle.
