LONGVIEW GREGG COUNTY RETIRED TEACHERS

  from your president.......

Welcome:

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to join the Longview/ Gregg County Unit of Retired Teachers Association. TRTA is the largest organization of public education retirees in the nation. They are fighting hard for you with the legislature to protect and improve our benefits. The next legislative session will be very important in protecting our insurance program and our pension plans. This is a good opportunity to be involved locally and support the state organization.

We are better together on the issues.  We want to be heard, seen, and respected.
