Dear Teacher,

You may not be aware of how serious the contemplated change of mandatory
social security will be for our pension system. The California Teacher's
Association is urging you to write or call your congressman or woman now .
We need them to support our STRS retirement and vote NO.

Send to:

Honorable_____________ (Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein)
US Senate
Washington, DC 20510

and

Honorable _____________ ( Your local rep)
US House of Representatives
Washington DC 20515

Sample Text

To the Honorable _________________

I am writing to urge you to vote against mandatory Social Security. I have
worked all my life as a school teacher and faithfully paid into my CASTRS
fund. My retirement fund has been managed well. I deserve the peace of
mind a secure retirement will bring.

If teachers are required to contribute to Social Security it will break my
retirement fund and it will only keep the options to support the Social
Security System.

(Sign your name and address.)
