Public pensions are a favorite target of right-wing extremists and those looking to solve goverment’s fiscal problems on the backs of hard-working public-service workers. One strong defender of public pensions is NYSUT board member Tim Southerton of Sayville. Southerton, ED 21 director, will bring his winning arguments to “The Pension Debate: Public Pensions and Long Island’s Schools,” part of the Long Island Business Report series on WLIW.
The program will air at 7 p.m. tomorrow night, with repeats scheduled for 11:30 p.m. Thursday and 9:30 a.m. Sunday.
The full program will be posted on WLIW’s website on Thursday. Check it out.
