Petition for Local and State Government Retirees
For decades, local and state government retirees could count on their elected offi cials to
provide infl ation-fi ghting cost of living adjustments. Not so today. Retirees continue to
lose pension value from the lack of cost of living adjustments (COLAs) with scarce (if any)
bonuses, economic uncertainty and rising infl ation.
For the more than 300,000 North Carolina local and state government retirees, our elected
leaders owe it to these deserving men and women to fi nd commonsense solutions to provide
cost of living adjustments.
I stand with my fellow retirees and demand that Governor Roy Cooper, our locally-elected
municipal and county offi cials and the members of the North Carolina General Assembly make
government retiree quality of life a top priority.
Check One. I am a: _____ Retiree of Local Government Agency
