Election Day Success

HPROA Board of Directors Elections went off without a hitch,
and the Board Members were either Elected or Re-Elected
for the up coming term.

HPROA President Steve Rayne pointed out the association's by-laws require
that the HPROA  give each member of the association the opportunity to
have a direct voice in the election of the officers of the association.  Currently
the most economical way to do this is by direct mail to each member.

President                 Steve Rayne    Re-Elected
1st Vice-President    Matt Potell     Re-Elected
Treasurer               Ed Aldridge Elected
Position #2    Fred Walschburger    Re-Elected
Position #4                Jim St. [More]

Police Pension Update
"A Season of Change"

It has been well over a month since the new Pension Law for Houston Police Officers (and surviving spouses) has taken effect.  The actual effect to the benefit structure has not yet surfaced to most members of HPOPS and to our members.  When negotiations began, between HPOPS and the City of Houston, last year for the compromise, the general mood and feelings were that this would be a "slam dunk" at the legislature.  It was not anticipated that many obstacles would arise and create problems leading to a finished piece of legislation.
