Clay County Retired Teachers Association is asking that our retired teachers write to our Area 4 Legislators.  Please be polite in reminding them that we have received no COLA for eight years and have lost 17% of purchasing power in those eight years.  A COLA will not create a big increase in the Unfunded Liability.

Also our money goes right back into the community therefore helping our economy.

When writing to them there are some things to consider.

1. The address should begin with “The Honorable______"
2. The greeting should begin with Dear Representative_____:   or Dear Senator______:
3. Always be professional and polite.
4. We begin with thanking them for past COLA’s or 13th checks.
5. We note the above points that are important.
