I was so glad to read that you will be covering the Capitol this legislative session (Jan. 6 issue). I and many of my colleagues are very interested in knowing about the PERA bill and the changes that will be happening to our retirement plan as well as all of higher education.
One of our main concerns regarding the demise of the Silver and Gold Recordwas that we weren't going to have anyone covering legislation that concerns us — state classified employees.
I am the chair of the legislative committee for the University of Colorado Denver's Staff Council. I also sit on the legislative committee for Statewide Liaison Council, a group represented by the majority of higher education institutions in the state. We look forward to any information you can obtain for us during this legislative session.
