Sponsors Legislation to Increase Government Union Pensions

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                                                                               February 11, 2014

Concord, NH: According to today’s Concord Monitor, at the behest of her union boss campaign donors, Sylvia Larsen will today bring before the Senate legislation to increase defined pension benefits for new government employees hired after 2012.

 

“This bill from Sylvia Larsen is a real slap in the face to Concord property taxpayers,” said Concord Republican City Chairman Kerry Marsh.  “The state continues to dump its obligations onto local property taxpayers and Senator Larsen’s bill adds to that pile.”

“Virtually all private sector pensions have been eliminated, they are unsustainable, and government should be moving towards market-based approaches for its employees, using tools like 401K’s.  But Sylvia Larsen wants to take us in the opposite direction,” continued Marsh.

 

Home to two bridges deemed “structurally deficient” and “fracture critical” [1], both of which span the Merrimack River, Marsh went on to say “we have two bridges in Concord in vital need of repair and all we get on the subject from Sen. Larsen is talk.  One of these bridges has even been closed to emergency fire and ambulance service, yet Sylvia has the audacity to ask property taxpayers to pay higher pension costs.”

 

Concord Republican City Committee activist Chris Wood commented, “time and again we see misplaced priorities from Sylvia Larsen. This latest legislation is a real insult to property taxpayers, many of whom are already paying $8,000, $9,000 and even $10,000 annually for the “privilege” of staying in their homes.  Senator Larsen needs to withdraw this bill and apologize to Concord taxpayers, or at the very least return the campaign donations of the union bosses she’s fronting for.”
