Teachers: Your Vote Matters

Teachers Retirement Board Election in February

Woman and Child

Wisconsin Retirement System elementary and secondary school teachers have the opportunity to elect two members to the Teachers Retirement Board in February.

The 13-member TR Board advises the Employee Trust Funds Board on retirement and other benefit matters involving all public school, technical college, state and university teachers.

Active teacher members of the WRS (excluding those employed by the School District of Milwaukee, Wisconsin technical college system districts or the University of Wisconsin System) are eligible to vote in this election.

Three candidates are vying for two seats on the TR Board:

James J. Langkamp, Baraboo School District

David L. Wiltgen, Eau Claire Area School District

Nicole M. Zwiefel, Tomah Area School District

The Department of Employee Trust Funds no longer uses paper ballots to conduct board elections. All voters must vote online. Watch for more information about the candidates and how to obtain your PIN and cast a ballot in the January 2017 edition of WRS News Online.
