After a career of public service, our educators deserve a secure retirement based upon a well maintained and protected pension!
Greetings…I am Michael E.Brunson. I have recently retired after serving 3 terms as Recording Secretary for Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) starting in 2010. Prior to this I was a Chicago Public School elementary grades teacher, mostly in primary grades. I came into teaching after working a number of years in Industry, which left me with a concern for reinvigorating vocational education in Chicago Public schools during my terms as an officer of the CTU. While serving as an elected CTU officer, I also frequently monitored the Chicago Teachers’ Pension Fund (CTPF) with a special interest in positive investment returns, increasing the CTPF contributory base, and sharing alerts concerning the rising political attacks on our defined benefit pensions. As A CTPF Trustee, it will be an honor to continue to serve our members as I fulfill my fiduciary duties.
