Retiring with Diginity

As Chair of the Tacoma Employee Retirement System Board, Marilyn increased public pension funding during her term in office and fought to preserve pension benefits for city workers in the midst of a recession. In Congress, she will strongly support full funding for Social Security and Medicare, and push to increase contributions for federal pensions so that workers receive the full benefits they deserve.
