At our last AEA Building Rep meeting, we were asked to spread the word about the current budget proposals being debated in Springfield right now. The proposals would cut $150 million from K-12 public education this year! So, everyone is encouraged to contact your Illinois legislators immediately and ask them to support AND protect public education and here is an an easy to contact them that only takes a minute:
On your computer, just go to http://www.ieanea.org/
and click on the “School Funding” icon. Then click where it says email your legislators
. It will bring up a pre-populated letter that expresses your concerns as an IEA member on the budget cuts to education. All you have to do is type your name in the closing and then scroll down and fill in your contact info. The emailed letters will be generated to your elected state officials. (i.e. Dan Beiser and Bill Haine). You can also download an app on your smart phone, just search for ‘my iea app’ and once you download it to your phone, you can email your legislators and also read the latest communications from the IEA, without filling up your email inbox.
One more thing, if you are a TRS member, you will be receiving election ballots for the upcoming TRS Trustee elections. The IEA only supports two of the candidates and they are Cinda Klickna and Andrew Hirshman. The IEA is highly encouraging everyone to complete your ballots, by voting for them and don’t forget to mail them back. Any unfilled positions will be appointed by Governor Rauner and we really don’t want that to happen to the future of TRS!
