Friday, March 27, Dan Borenstein from the Bay Area News Group/Contra Costa Times comes to Rotary to talk about public pensions. The unfunded portion of this public debts are so large they put local at state government at risk for near term financial failure and bankruptcy. Daniel Bornstein is a acknowledged expert on public finance and has written extensively on local issues like Doctors Hospital and county employee pension spiking. If you pay property taxes or know people that do, you will want to be at this meeting. Do you friends a favor and bring them along because if you wait for the political hit piece information in the next election, you are not going to get the complete picture.

RSVP, Jim Young
