Huberman Pension Grab Dead?

  • The Fraternal Order of Police is trying to block CTA President Ron Huberman from hanging on to his police pension, which Huberman claims he's entitled to because part of his $198,000-a-year mass transit job revolves around security.

    In an Oct. 7 letter to the Policemen's Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago, FOP President Mark Donahue declared his board's "complete opposition" to Huberman's controversial request.

As noted here and elsewhere, the Patrolman Representative Steve Robbins was the only one of eight board members to vote against tabling Huberman's claim, which might set the stage for a future vote when the Board meets and the mayor's people are in a majority. It is also arguable that none of this would have come to light without the YouTube video and press coverage generated by candidate Mike Shields (not the Deputy Superintendent).

Now comes word via various comments that Huberman is removing his motion from consideration for the time being. This doesn't preclude his reapplying at a later date, so evidently, constant vigilance is the watchword of the day, the month and the upcoming years. Hopefully, the newly elected or retained representatives continue to keep everyone apprised of the business of the board.

For Robbins to parade aroud like he did something noble at the pension hearing makes no sense.

In the youtube video, you can clearly see the FOX news cameras. How would you vote if you were on camera.

Robbins made no effort throughout his term to fight back. All he can boast about is one vote that was a NO BRAINER.

I called him out in roll call. I asked him how much money he likes to give away to da mayor's nephews each year. Try getting outta that one.

This just goes to show you that with the old regime of candidates we get the same type of action none. As stated in the artice if it were not for P.O. Shields the illustrious prince Huberman would have once again pulled the wool over the eyes of the citizens of chicago and taken their tax dollars once again. If you have not seen the video please do so...Robbins and crew are no where to be found. Its obvious that we need one of US ,not another hack to looking over our pension...I voted for Shields along with the countless others who are tired of seeing our futures wasted so that another one of the chosen few gets fat off our backs!!

How many other " part time " police officers made the pension grab before it was caught? I am sure that there are people who are getting a pension who have no business enjoying it.
Maybe someone who worked 8 or 9 years and then moved to a cushy city,state or county job.

Robbins is a knowledgeable guy when it comes to the pension fund and he has done a good job representing police officers.

But, Mike Shields really put his ass on the line by taking on powerful interests in this city. And more importantly, Mike was able to publicly point out that the Huberman issue is only one more example of how the pension fund is being raided by politicans.

In the end, no matter how badly funded the pension fund is, the city and state taxpayers are on the hook for those of us who are vested (10 yrs or more). But, as the taxpayers have to pay more and more, they are going to put pressure on the politicans. The politicans will blame the problem on the "over-benefited, over-paid" police officers. The politicans have already successfully recruited columnists like Eric Zorn and Mark Brown to push these lies. The politicans can't reduce the taxpayers' pension liability, but they will use the under-funded pension as an excuse to reduce pay and other benefits (i.e. health benefits) for police officers.

What Mike pointed out is that the pension fund problems have nothing to do with police officers and everything to do with politicans that are using the fund as their personal and political piggybank.

Since Mike was so good at bringing this issue to the surface and not afraid of taking on the risk that came with it, he got my vote.

HOWEVER, YOUR SUPPORT FOR ROBBINS IN THE POST IS BULLSHIT. THE ELECTED POLICE REPS AT THE BOARD, HAUSER (RETIRED), MALONEY (LT.'S) AND LAZZARO (SGT.'S) ALL VOTED TO DEFER THE MATTER THOUGH THEY HAD THE MAJORITY BECAUSE A CITY HALL APPOINTEE ON THE BOARD WAS ABSENT THAT DAY. IF ROBBINS HAD ONE OUNCE OF INFLUENCE OR CREDIBILITY, HE WOULD HAVE SHAMED THE OTHER COPS INTO DENYING THE HUBERMAN REQUEST. SORRY TO SAY, ROBBINS IS LOOKED AT AS THE COURT JESTER BY THE REST OF THE BOARD. HE IS USELESS. BUT DON'T TAKE IT FROM ME. GO TO A PENSION BOARD MEETING AND SEE IT WITH YOUR OWN EYES.

Retired Guy READ THIS:

We're saving you a lot of embarrassment and abuse by deleting your posts. We're going to try to correct you here:

Mike Shields, the Deputy Superintendent, is not running for anything. He is Michelle Obama's cousin, he is the subject of an unknown number of CR complaints by a certain gender of officer.

Mike Shields, the PO, is running for pension board rep and was the instigator of an amusing confrontation vs Ron Huberman. He is running on the Patrol side - you cannot vote for him! You can only vote for the retiree representative. Just like Sergeants can only vote for the Sergeant Rep and Lieutenants and above can only vote for their rep.

It certainly looks like jealousy is rearing it's ugly head with certain candidates.
You sat back and hoped that people without doing any work would just vote for you. Then a candidate risks himself by exposing the truth and gaining some attention through different media outlets.
So what does a candidate do now? Simple you start with the personal character assassination and blatant lies to build your platform. Fortunately readers on this blog are smart creatures and can smell bullshit a mile away. So say what you want Mr. Robbins and Mr.Capperelli. But do not underestimate the readers into buying into your propaganda for a minute. You both are scrambling and frightened about this election. Just remember gentlemen it usually boils down to one question "What have you done for me lately"? And the answer would be nothing.
So cut the personal attacks and count on your voting history or F.O.P. position(prior to you being fired) where you have been able to have helped the men and women of this Department out. We fortunately have this blog to inform Officers and express opinions and keep 35th Street bosses on the up and up.

I'd still do anything for another copper and I know there are still enough of us out there to believe that a 'brotherhood' exists in our ranks.

That being said I just think that its time we recognize ACTION and not the same old In-ACTION we are accustomed to. Admittedly, I know dick about the pension situation other than the what the almighty blog has informed me of as well as the visit to roll call from candidate Shields and I saw Robbins passing out pens but missed his visit to roll call cuz I was running late.

The bottom line is the kid Shields put himself out there in a department that rewards being a "yes" man... he said "NO" Loudly in a public setting ans showed more balls that any of our already elected officials. Win or lose he took a chance and so should we! My vote is in the mail for Mike Shields and I wish him well.

The bottom line is the kid Shields put himself out there in a department that rewards being a "yes" man... he said "NO" Loudly in a public setting ans showed more balls that any of our already elected officials. Win or lose he took a chance and so should we! My vote is in the mail for Mike Shields and I wish him well.
