The CSR Candidates PAC allows us to assist in electing legislative candidates. Your contribution goes to support those candidates who will fight to protect the pensions and health benefits of retired state employees.
The CSR PAC Committee researches candidates running for office with member and chapter input and makes endorsement recommendations to the CSR Board of Directors. The Board determines appropriate contributions to the candidates’ campaign.
Choices are not based on political party affiliation but on whom has a favorable track record on issues important to state retirees. Our intent is to give support and assistance to candidates who understand the challenges of being a retired state employee and agree with our mission.
The CSR Issues PAC helps us sponsor and support legislation that improves and protects the pensions and health benefits of retired state employees, without takeaways.
We also rally against state ballot measures that are not in the best interest of our members. Your contribution is used to conduct political activities important to our mission, and it cannot be given to candidates. It allows CSR to equip members with training to educate elected officials and the general public when retirees are subject to attacks on our pensions and health benefits.
The Issues PAC funds Lobby Day, CSR’s annual Capitol visit to meet with Assembly and Senate members. On this day, members express their views on upcoming legislation and how it may affect retirees.
