ALBANY, N.Y. – A press conference was held Tuesday to discuss the results of a new pension study. The study exposes the top pensions for retired government employees of Albany County, New York State government retirees, and statewide government teachers.
The top 100 state employee pensions each exceed $4.1 million, while all 100 of the top teachers exceed $5.5 million. One former SUNY employee’s pension is $11.8 million.
At the conference, Christina Tobin, Vice President for Taxpayers United of America (TUA), discussed the letters she delivered to Gov. Andrew Cuomo and members of the New York Legislature. Tobin wants them to expand the pension reforms passed last week, which don’t apply to present employees.
