ORTA is pleased to share that the Ohio Federation of Teachers (OFT) has endorsed Michelle Flanigan for a contributing (active) seat on the STRS Ohio Retirement Board.
Michelle has worked for the past 26 years as a Government, Economics and Financial Literacy teacher at Brunswick City Schools. Prior to becoming a teacher, she worked as a financial analyst at American Greetings.
Michelle has also been endorsed by the Ohio STRS Members Only Forum (MOF) and The STRS Ohio Watchdogs.
ORTA endorsed Michelle because we were seeking a candidate who will analyze pension finances and advocate for the restoration of pension benefits in a responsible manner, and one who possesses strong listening and relationship building skills. During our interview with Michelle, it was clear that she checked all the boxes and would serve as an excellent fiduciary for our members.
Active teachers will vote in April for a teacher to fill this seat on the Board. The new Trustee will begin their term on September 1, 2024.
