I believe current TVARS board members who were on the board at the time the following occurred still owe TVA employees and retirees answers to the questions below. Jim Hovious was not on the board at the time the following occurred. Jim told me that he would have seconded the motions below and that he would not have voted to recommend TVA contribute only $285 million in 2014.
- Why leave TVA employees and retirees vulnerable to further COLA benefit reductions, and make it more difficult for their lawsuit to achieve a fair settlement, by refusing to second the motion I made to clarify that the COLAs are vested benefits?
- Why refuse to second my motion to have open meetings where TVA employees and retirees could observe?
- Why vote to maintain TVARS' poor financial condition and recommend TVA contribute only $285 million in 2014, thereby enabling the shifting of blame for the system's poor financial condition to the TVARS board, as well as the intensification of the pressure to further reduce benefits?
