TOP STORY: Sign the Petition: Make Retirement Security a Reality in Oregon

Thousands of Oregonians have less than $25,000 in retirement savings. Average retirement savings among Oregonians between the ages of 45 and 65 is less than $5,000.

Why?

Most don’t have access to a retirement plan at work. That’s why the Save Today, Secure Tomorrow bill is such a big deal for Oregon. It will set us on a path toward establishing a retirement savings plan for Oregonians who don’t have access to a plan at work.

The Oregon Retirement Savings Plan will be a voluntary, easy to use, portable, and professionally managed retirement savings plan offering low-cost investment options. Having access to this plan could mean the difference between poverty and dignity in retirement for thousands of Oregon workers.

Sign the petition and tell the Legislature: it's time to take action and pass Save Today, Secure Tomorrow!

Thank you!
Tobias

Tobias Read has always been focused on the future, on what our community — and our state — will look like in the long run. And with the lingering recession and the challenges it's created for our economy, we need his unique brand of long-run thinking now more than ever before. Because the decisions we make today on reviving our economy will shape our state for years to come. Learn more about Tobias.

What will Oregon look like in ten years?

What kind of state will our children inherit from us?

Can we honor Oregon's heritage and traditions while readying ourselves for the future?

For me, answering those questions today means that Oregon will be an even better place to live tomorrow.

I try to approach my job as your State Representative by thinking about the long run, putting long-term priorities over short-term political gain. I want to choose innovation and collaboration rather than obstruction.

I appreciate the support and direction you've given me and hope to be able to continue to work for you.
