Kansas City Retirees "Ready to Rumble"

Over 170 retires met met at the Independence American Legion Post 21 to prepare themselves for the battle to protect their pensions. The meeting was hosted by the Missouri - Kansas City Committee to Protect Our Pensions. Local 41 (of which most of the retirees are life long members) refused to hold a pension meeting at their hall.

The tone and temperament of this meeting proved positively that these retires are ready, even anxious for a fight. Committee chair, Dave Scheidt said, "These guys are ready to rumble, we will have to get busy to keep them busy!" Representatives from the Bernie Sanders campaign were present and a letter from Bernie was read in support of their efforts.  

The next pension meeting is planed for October 29, at 1:00 PM at the same American Legion Post, unless the walls of the local come tumbling down when retires picket the local's next general membership meeting on October 10.
