Board Trustee Election

Nominations for the pension trustee position whose 3 year term begins in January 2021 are now in. We have 2 firefighters who were nominated and agreed to run. They are Doug Fowler and Stephen Truesdell. The elections are held November 1-15th. The ballots with their bio included will be mailed to both the active and retired membership to their addresses we have on file for them and will also include an envelope to return to an independent entity or P. O. Box, for eventual counting of the ballots by the independent party. This counting of ballots will be observed by a representative from both the Austin Retired Firefighters Association (ARFFA) and the Austin Firefighters Association (Local 975).


Let us know if there are any questions.

Thank You,

Pension Staff
