Notice: Cook County Pension Fund Annuitant Trustee Election

Cook County retirees have a chance to vote to protect their retirement security. AFSCME Illinois Retiree Chapter 31 is recommending Kulmeet "Bob" Galhotra for trustee in the October 27 mail-ballot election.

Kulmeet “Bob” Galhotra served for some three decades as an attorney in the Public Defender’s Office of Cook County, and served as President of AFSCME Local 3315 for nearly 10 years. With over 30 years of experience practicing constitutional law, Bob has shown a commitment to justice and fairness, and knows how to defend and advocate for the rights of retirees.

For Cook County retirees, the Cook County Pension Fund is your pension fund—it invests your employee contributions and makes decisions about your benefits, affecting the security of your retirement. Union voices on pension boards are the best way to ensure you have a voice in your pension fund. That’s why AFSCME is recommending Kulmeet “Bob” Galhotra for Trustee.
