President's Message:

John Masterjohn

 

Well fall is upon us, the weather is starting to change, but wasn’t it the best summer in a long time? School has started and there are kids everywhere — so don’t forget to drive the speed limit during school hours because they installed five new cameras at different schools.

At our last board meeting, we discussed having a time slot at the beginning of each meeting for members to come and comment on issues that they would like us to review and possibly act upon. So if there is an interest in coming, please notify me so we can create time for you on the agenda. Also, you can check our website for more information.

The ARSCE Christmas Luncheon has been set for Wednesday, December 3rd, at the West Seattle Golf Course. The cost will be $22.00 per person. Just a note to explain how the gift exchange works — if you want to be included in the gift exchange you need to bring a gift. That means couples should bring two gifts. I would like to personally thank Pam Lucarelli and Kathy Ray for co-chairing the Program Committee for a number of years and doing a great job. We are lucky to have Ann Beard, who has volunteered to take over chairmanship of that committee.

I met with Ken Nakatsu this month and he relayed to me that the Seattle City Council had approved the SMC (Seattle Municipal Code) clean-up, the final average salary/ service credit, the current interest rate on current employees’ funds at 3.66% and most important, the City’s increase to the fund.

Well I hope to see you all at the Christmas Luncheon. Please sign up early so we can get a good head count, and if you can’t make it please have a great holiday and a Happy New Year.

Your President,

John Masterjohn
