REALLY USEFUL INFORMATION TO HELP US AS A BOARD GUIDE THE SCHOOL SYSTEM TO MEET THE OVERARCHING GOALS WE HAVE FOR THE COMMUNITY AND STAFF HAS JUST ALWAYS REALLY STEPPED UP TO THE TASK GIVING US GREAT INFORMATION BASED ON WHAT WE ASK IT IS FAIR TO SAY EVERY YEAR WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION AS A BOARD TO LOOK AT THE STRATEGIC PLAN AND GOALS AND MEASURES TO MAKE SURE WE ARE STILL GETTING THE INFORMATION WE THINK THE COMMUNITY NEEDS AND WE NEED AND WE ARE NOT ASKING STAFF TO DO A LOT OF WORK THAT IS NOT VALUABLE TO US IT CONTINUES TO BE A LIVING DOCUMENT I CAN’T THANK STAFF ENOUGH FOR ALL THE WORK THAT WENT INTO THIS I BELIEVE THE REPORT DOES ANSWER VERY CLEARLY AND WITH A LOT OF REALLY IMPORTANT INFORMATION WHAT WE HAVE ASKED FOR SO THANK YOU MS.

McLAUGHLIN’S SWITCH IS ON, I’M GOING TO ANTICIPATE THAT WHICH IS COMING AND A SIMILAR COMMENT I SHARED WITH OUR GOAL ONE REPORT WE’RE NOT THERE YET AS A BOARD IN TERMS OF WHAT WE ASK OF STAFF DR. LOCKARD HAS BEGUN TO GUIDE US VERY WELL AS A PART OF WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR AND KIND OF GUIDING US AND LIMITING US TO THAT WHICH THE BOARD NEEDS TO FOCUS ON BUT NONETHELESS IN A SYSTEM OF OUR SIZE, WHEN YOU SEE THINGS LIKE 50, I THINK IT WAS 56 OR 58% OF TEACHERS TRUST THE PEOPLE THEY WORK WITH AND THAT IS NOT CALLED OUT AS A STATISTIC THAT NEEDS TO BE IDENTIFIED AS TO WHAT IS WRONG AND AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT THAT IS SOMETHING WE ARE GOING TO WORK ON OR THAT UPWARDS OF 70% OF OUR STUDENTS FEEL HIGH DEGREES OF STRESS OR MODERATE DEGREES OF STRESS NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT SPECIFICALLY WE ARE STARTING TO GET THERE THERE IS A LOT OMANAGE WITH A SCHOOL SYSTEM WITH 188,000 STUDENTS AND 40,000 FULL AND PART-TIME EMPLOYEES THIS REPORT, I THINK, I ANTICIPATE THAT BY NEXT YEAR THIS TIME BOTH FOR MY COLLEAGUES AND FOR STAFF, THERE IS GOING TO BE A GREATER SYNTHESIS OF THE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION THAT COMES IN THAT TO THE BOARD ALLOWS THE BOARD TO GOVERN BETTER WHEN STAFF CAN TAKE A LOOK AT INFORMATION AND SAY, LOOK, HERE IS A COMPENDIUM OF INFORMATION AND THESE ARE THE THINGS ABOUT WHICH WE ARE CONCERNED THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT ARE GOING WELL THESE ARE THE THING THAT CAUSE US CONCERN AND THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT WE BELIEVE THAT YOU AS A BOARD OF GOVERNORS, TRUSTEES OR A SCHOOL BOARD NEED TO FOCUS ON THAT COLD POTENTIALLY INVOLVE YOU CHANGING POLICY, MAKING POLICY OR CHANGING PRACTICES BY OUR GUIDANCE THEN WE BECOME BETTER STEWARDS OF THE SYSTEM BETTER STEWARDS NOT ONLY FOR THE

McLAUGHLIN I MOVE TO DEFER CONSIDERATION OF THE ERFC PLAN CHANGES TO NO LATTER THAN MAY 24, 2018 DEFERRING CONSIDERATION OF PLAN CHANGES WILL PROVIDE TIME FOR THE SCHOOL BOARD AND THE BOARD OF SUPERVISOR TO WORK TOGETHER IN DEVELOPING ANY PROPOSED PENSION PLAN CHANGES FOR INCLUSION IN THEIR RESPECTIVE FY 2019 BUDGETS IS THERE A SECOND? SECONDED BY MR. WILSON MS. McLAUGHLIN, WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPEAK TO YOUR AMENDMENT? YES, THANK YOU I VERY MUCH APPRECIATE THE AMOUNT OF TIME NOT ONLY MY COLLEAGUES AND I HAVE INVESTED IN TRYING TO UNDERSTAND AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE THE INTRICACIES OF THE ERFC SUPPLEMENTAL PENSION I APPRECIATE HOW MUCH OUR COMMUNITY HAS BEEN INVOLVED TO BRING THEIR VOICE TO THIS VERY IMPORTANT DECISION BEFORE THE BOARD AND IT IS IN LIGHT OF SOME RECENT DEVELOPMENT THAT I CAME FORWARD TODAY WITH THIS REQUEST TO DEFER CONSIDERATION TO MY COLLEAGUES I WILL SAY AT THE WORK SESSION ON MONDAY I ASKED IF STAFF WOULD INCLUDE A WORKING GROUP WITH STAKEHOLDERS INCLUDING EMPLOYEES ON ANY PROPOSED ERFC CHANGES AND THE ANSWER WAS NO I BELIEVE IF YOU READ THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS BUDGET GUIDANCE THAT THEY ISSUED TWO DAYS AGO, ONE OF THE KEY PIECES THAT THEY ARE MAKING A PROMISE TO THEIR EMPLOYEES IS THAT AS THEY DELIBERATE AND CONSIDER ANY POTENTIAL CHANGES FOR THIS NEXT YEAR IT IS THEIR COMMITMENT TO INVOLVING THEIR EMPLOYEES AND KEY STAKEHOLDERS IN THE CONVERSATION GIVEN THAT THERE IS NO ACTUAL URGENCY IN TERMS OF THE STAINABILITY OF ERFC TO MAKE THIS VOTE TONIGHT GIVEN THAT MANY OF US HAVE ASKED FOR AND BELIEVE IN THE VALUE OF THE SCHOOL BOARD AND THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS PARTNERING ON OUR EXISTING PENSION PLANS SO THAT WE CAN HAVE GREATER PARITY, EQUITY AND SUSTAINABILITY OF OUR PENSION PLANS TO ALL OF OUR EMPLOYEES WHETHER YOU WORK FOR THE SCHOOLS WHETHER YOU WORK FOR THE COUNTY YOU SERVE US IN THIS AMAZING COUNTY OF FAIRFAX WE ARE ONE FAIRFAX AND I DO BELIEVE THAT IF YOU LOOK AT SO MANY OF THE AMENDMENTS FROM ALL OF OUR COLLEAGUES THAT JUST MATERIALIZED IN THE LAST 24 HOURS, THE FACT THAT ONE OF THEM EVEN TALKS ABOUT THE RULE OF 90 AND YET WE HAVEN’T HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE THE FULL ANALYSIS OF WHAT THAT MEANS WE HAVEN’T HAD A CHANCE TO ENGAGE WITH OUR STAKEHOLDERS ON WHAT THAT MEANS I DO BELIEVE THAT MY AMENDMENT TO DEFER IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THIS SCHOOL SYSTEM, IT IS THE BEST INTEREST OF OUR EMPLOYEES IT IS THE BEST INTEREST OF THIS BOARD TO MAKE THE MOST THOUGHTFUL DECISION IT IS IN THE BEST INTEREST TO PARTNER WITH THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS IN HAVING THIS COMPREHENSIVE CONVERSATION SO I HUMBLY ASK MY COLLEAGUES TO PLEASE RECOGNIZE THAT THERE IS NO PENDING NEED FOR US TO HAVE TO DO IT TONIGHT WE DID HEAR FROM OUR CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER, SUSAN QUINN, IF WE WERE TO DEFER AND TRY TO VOTE ON THIS NEXT MONTH WITH OUR BUDGET THAT IS PROBLEMATIC BECAUSE THEY NEED TO HAVE THE EXTERNAL AUDITORS DO THE VALUATION ACTUARIAL WORK POSTPONING THIS UP TO NEXT YEAR IS NOT PROBLEMATIC I KNOW THAT BECAUSE ONE OF MY OTHER AMENDMENTS TONIGHT WHEN I SPOKE TO STAFF ABOUT IT, ESSENTIALLY IT ENDS UP KIND OF NOT HAVING ANY COST SAVINGS RIGHT NOW, BUT IT WOULD MOST CLOSELY MIRROR WHAT THE COUNTY GOVERNMENT DOES CURRENTLY FOR ITS EMPLOYEES IN THE FCERF ALL THOSE THINGS BEING SAID IN LIGHT OF THE FACT MANY OF OUR COLLEAGUES ARE STILL ASKING QUESTIONS UP UNTIL A FOU HOURS AGO TODAY, I TRULY HOPE PEOPLE WILL SUPPORT THIS AMENDMENT TO DEFER I THINK THIS IS REALLY THE BEST WAY TO SERVE OUR EMPLOYEES MR. WILSON THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR

ONE OF THE VERY FIRST THINGS I COMMENTED ON WHEN WE FIRST BEGAN DISCUSSIONS OF MODIFICATIONS TO THE ERFC AND THE CHANGES CONTEMPLATED WOULD HAVE AFFECTED CURRENT EMPLOYEES WAS THAT PROMISES HAVE BEEN MADE AND ANY TIME YOU GO BACK ON PROMISES THAT ARE MADE NO MATTER HOW GOOD THE JUSTIFICATION THERE IS GOING TO BE A SENSE OF BETRAYAL THE OVERWHELMING DISLIKE OF THE MODIFICATIONS OF THE EMPLOYEES AND RETIREES OF FAIRFAX COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS IS EVIDENT THERE IS A FEELS THERE IS A PROMISE THAT IS NOT GOING TO BE KEPT IF WE VOTE IN FAVOR OF THESE CHANGES IN ADDITION TO THAT, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I HAVE ONLY LEARNED VERY RECENTLY, BUT IT OCCURRED TO ME TODAY AS I WAS THINKING ABOUT WHERE THIS PROPOSED CHANGES CAME FROM IS THAT IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES FOR ERFC HAS NOT ACTUALLY VOTED TO RECOMMEND THESE CHANGES WE RECEIVED A LETTER THEY MADE A RECOMMENDATION NOT TO MAKE CHANGES TO VESTED EMPLOYEES IT IS MY OPINION THE BOARD OF ERFC HAS A DUTY TO VOTE AND MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS IF THIS SCHOOL BOARD IS GOING TO ENACT CHANGES THAT HAS NOT HAPPENED I THINK THEY HAVE THE EXPERTISE WHICH ONE OF OUR SPEAKERS TONIGHT POINTED OUT MIGHT BE LACKING AMONG THE SCHOOL BOARD TO EVALUATE THE CONDITION AND LONG-TERM CONDITION OF THE ERFC IN THE COUNTY I SHOULD CLARIFY THAT I HAVE NEVER FELT THAT WE CAN’T MAKE CHANGES BECAUSE IF WE ARE GOING TO BANKRUPT THE COUNTY, IF THIS IS A SINKING SHIP AND IF WE HAVE TO MAKE REPAIRS, THEN WE HAVE TO DO THAT I THINK THE EMPLOYEES WILL UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN THAT CASE HAS BEEN MADE I HAVE NOT BEEN CONVINCED WITH THE PRESENTATIONS WE HAVE RECEIVED BY THE SCHOOL BOARD THAT WE ARE IN THAT SITUATION I WOULD ALSO MENTION I BELIEVE THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS HAS AND IS CONTEMPLATING TO BEGIN WORK WITH THE TASK FORCE TO LOOK AT COUNTY PENSIONS TOGETHER AND I THINK MS. McLAUGHLIN WAS MENTIONING THIS I THINK OUR CHANGES TO THE FAIRFAX COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS PLAN SHOULD BE MADE IN A MANNER THAT IS CONSISTENT AND IN CONCERT WITH FAIRFAX COUNTY’S PLAN AND THAT JUST MAKES SENSE THESE ARE COUNTY LIABILITIES THAT ARE FOR THE COUNTY EMPLOYEES INCLUDING FAIRFAX COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS EMPLOYEES THAT HASN’T HAPPENED SO, AGAIN, I WOULD SAY IT IS WORTH THE TIME WE INVEST TO SPEND THE TIME TO REVIEW AND DISCUSS AND UNDERSTAND AND THEN DEVELOP CHANGES THAT TREAT ALL OF THE EMPLOYEES AND RETIREES EQUITABLY WHILE AT THE SAME TIME PROVIDING A WONDERFUL BENEFIT TO ATTRACT NEW EMPLOYEES IN FAIRFAX COUNTY THE FINAL POINT THAT I THINK WARRANTS CONSIDERATION BY THE BOARD BEFORE WE VOTE ON IT, IT IS A 2014 ATTORNEY GENERAL OPINION WITH APPLICABILITY TO THE PLAN CHANGES WE ARE CONTEMPLATING TONIGHT THAT OPINION HAS NOT BEEN DISCUSSED BY THE BOARD WITH OUR COUNSEL IT RAISES SIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS OUR BOARD NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND IF WE ARE GOING TO GO FORWARD WITH THAT VOTE I REQUEST WE HAVE A SHORT BREAK TO GO BACK INTO CLOSED SESSION TO RECEIVE THE INFORMATION FROM OUR GENERAL COUNSEL REGARDING THE INTERPRETATION OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OPINION ARE YOU MAKING A MOTION? ONLY IF THIS FAILS, MADAM CHAIR MS. CORBETT SANDERS THIS WHOLE CONVERSATION IS ONE THAT IS INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATING I THINK TO ME AND TO MANY OF THE PEOPLE ON THIS BOARD AND IN THIS ROOM BECAUSE WE ARE AT THE SITUATION WE’RE IN BECAUSE OF THE CHRONIC UNDERFUNDING OF OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM THE CHRONIC UNDERFUNDING IS NOT SOLELY IN THE HAND OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS, IT IS IN THE STATE AND FEDERAL FUNDERS AS WELL

THIS BOARD HAS BEEN HANDED AN INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT SITUATION WITH A BUDGET SHORT FALL, WE HAVE BEEN KIND OF, OUR BACKS UP AGAINST THE WALL TO LOOK AT WAYS OF ADDRESSING CHRONIC UNDERFUNDING AND FROM THE VERY BEGINNING ON THE DISCUSSION OF THE ERFC I HAVE SAID AND REMAIN COMMITTED WE HONOR THE COVENANT WE HAVE MADE WITH THE EMPLOYEES WE HAVE ON OUR PAYROLL TODAY AND SO, FOR ME, THIS IS A CRITICAL PIECE THAT PEOPLE THAT WE HAVE OFFERED EMPLOYMENT AND THEY HAVE TAKEN US UP ON THAT EMPLOYMENT SHOULD KNOW WHAT THEY ARE BEING OFFERED AND GOING FORWARD, IF WE MAKE CHANGES TO THE ERFC, THAT THOSE CHANGES SHOULD BE DONE IN A MANNER THAT IS CONSISTENT AND COHERENT WITH OTHER PENSION PROGRAMS THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO COUNTY EMPLOYEES HERE IN FAIRFAX COUNTY, THE OTHER PENSION PROGRAMS HAVE CHANGED OVER TIME AS HAS THE ERFC AND SO MAKING CHANGES TO THE ERFC IS NOT SOMETHING THAT HASN’T BEEN DONE BEFORE, I THINK IT HAS BEEN DONE FOR VARIOUS REASONS AT THIS POINT ANY CHANGES TO THE ERFC ARE CONTEMPLATED IN A MANNER TO ENSURE THAT ITS SUSTAINABLE FOR THE LONG HAUL, FOR ALL OF THE EMPLOYEES THAT ARE CURRENTLY ON OUR PAYROLL AS WELL AS EMPLOYEES THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO ATTRACT TO COMING TO THE COUNT BECAUSE THE ERFC IS A UNIQUE PROGRAM THAT IS NOT AVAILABLE IN OUR NEIGHBORING JURISDICTIONS AND SO WE NEED TO DO EVERYTHING IN OUR POWER TO ENSURE THAT IS A SUSTAINABLE PROGRAM BUT WE ALSO NEED TO AT THE SAME TIME HONOR THE COVENANT THAT WE HAVE WITH OUR EXISTING EMPLOYEE BASE AND SO THAT IS WHY I THINK THAT IT WELCOMES — WE WELCOME THE DISCUSSION HERE TONIGHT, BUT WE ALSO NEED TO ASSURE EVERYBODY IN THIS ROOM THAT EVERYBODY ON THE SCHOOL BOARD DOES CARE AND VALUES THE COMMITMENT YOU ALL HAVE MADE TO US AND ENSURING STUDENT SUCCESS AND THAT IT IS THE COVENANT THAT WE PLAN ON HONORING SEEING NO OTHER BOARD MEMBERS WANTING TO SPEAK, MRS. HOUGH THANK YOU I WASN’T SURE IF I SHOULD SPEAK NOW OR WAIT, BUT I DON’T HAVE A GOOD SENSE OF WHERE THIS MOTION IS GOING SO I FEEL LIKE I MIGHT NEED TO SPEAK UP NOW I AGREE WITH A LOT OF WHAT MS CORBETT SANDERS SAID AND I LENSED CAREFULLY TO ALL THE SPEAKERS TONIGHT I DO FEEL WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WITH HOW WE ARE COMMUNICATING WHAT WE ARE DOING, WHY WE ARE DOING IT, HOW WE ARE DOING IT WE HAVE SPOKEN ABOUT THIS FOR A LONG WHILE AND COMMUNICATED WITH EMPLOYEES FOR A LONG WHILE I ALSO AGREE WITH MS. McLAUGHLIN IN HER COMMENTS ABOUT KEEPING ALSO WITH WHAT THE COUNTY IS DOING WITH THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS HAVE DONE WHERE THEY ARE AND I ACTUALLY DO FEEL WE SHOULD BE ONLY LOOKING AT NEW HIRE AND NOT PEOPLE WE HAVE ALREADY HIRED I DID WANT TO SEE, I’M SORRY I DIDN’T GIVE YOU A HEADS UP MS BENEDICTO, I ASKED A BUDGET QUESTION A WHILE AGO AND STAFF WAS ABLE TO WORK ON IT, WHAT DOES FAIRFAX COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS NOW WE INFUSE THE $40 MILLION LAST YEAR PLUS THE STEP AND THE MSA, HOW ARE WE DOING COMPARED TO THE MARKET ON TOTAL COMPENSATION AND THAT ANSWER WAS RELEASED FOR US I’M NOT SURE OF THE EXACT PERCENTAGE THERE BUT IT LOOKS LIKE WE ARE PRETTY CLOSE TO WHAT OUR GOAL WAS FOR OUR EMPLOYEES BEING 95% TO 105% OF MARKET ALONG THE LINE IN MANY PLACES ABOVE THE MARKET SO I THINK WE NEED TO CONTINUE HAVING A CONVERSATION MAKING SURE THAT WE ARE DIALOGUING WITH ALL OF THE INFORMATION IT IS CONCERNING TO ME BECAUSE I HEAR THINGS FROM CONSTITUENTS AND CONCERNED EMPLOYEES THAT THEY HAVE AGREED AND I’M GOING TO QUOTE SOME THINGS I HEARD

TONIGHT, AGREED TO SALARY TRADEOFFS, AND THAT THERE WERE 250 SLOTS OPEN AND TEACHERS ARE LEAVING IN DROVES FOR BETTER BENEFITS AND I LOOK AT THE REALITY OF WHAT WE ARE OFFERING AND ONE OF THE PLACES I HEAR THAT OUR TEACHERS ARE LEAVING TO IS ARLINGTON WELL THEIR SUPPLEMENTAL RETIREMENT IS A 401A MATCH WHERE THEY MATCH .4% WITH AN EMPLOYEE CONTRIBUTION WITH ERFC WE WERE 5.6% AND IN ORDER TO SUSTAIN THE FUND WE ARE GOING UP TO 6.4% AND PROJECTED TO BE CONTINUING TO GO UP WHICH IS IN TERMS OF A LONG-TERM SOLVENCY MARKER, NOT WHAT WE WOULD WANT TO SEE I DO THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW WE AS A BOARD ARE TRYING TO BE RESPONSIBLE IN HOW WE SHOW THAT WE VALUE OUR EMPLOYEES A YEAR AGO I CONTINUALLY HEARD ABOUT THE NEED TO INCREASE SALARY AND WAS FULL ON SUPPORT FOR THE $40 MILLION INFLUX, THE STEP, THE MSA I CONTINUED TO BE IN SUPPORT OF THE INCREASE IN SALARY I AM HEARING BY AND LARGE TEACHERS ARE LEAVING FOR A BETTER SALARY WE CAN’T CONTINUE TO SAY WE ARE NOT GOING TO RETAIN TEACHER IF WE GET RID OF ERFC AND WE ARE RAISING SALARY AND HERE WE ARE ON OUR COMPARISON TO THE MARKET IN SOME SENSE, I KNOW I’M NOT SAYING WHERE I AM, BUT THESE ARE IMPORTANT POINTS TO MAKE IN SOME SENSE I FEEL LIKE I WANT TO GET THE RETIREES IN THE ROOM WITH THE NEW EMPLOYEES AND UNDERSTAND WHERE EVERYONE REALLY IS BECAUSE AT THE TIME YOU ARE SAYING YOU ARE LEAVING FOR BETTER SALARY BUT YOU ARE SAYING IF YOU DON’T GIVE THE ERFC WE ARE LEAVING BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE THE SUPPLEMENT BENEFITS THESE OTHER JURISDICTIONS, WE ARE MATCHING THEM AT LEAST IF NOT BETTER SO IF WE ARE LOSING TEACHERS AND NOT RETAINING THEM, WE ARE NOT PAYING THE EMPLOYEES CORRECTLY THAT IS A HUGE CONCERN AND WE KNOW THAT IN OUR DOLLARS WE DON’T HAVE THE ABILITY TO CONTINUE DOING BOTH IT IS IMPORTANT TO ALSO NOTE FOR ME THAT THE ERFC VOTE IS NOT ABOUT BALANCING THE BUDGET IT IS ABOUT LONG-TERM SUSTAINABILITY OF OUR OPERATING FUND SO THAT WE DON’T HAVE TO KEEP MAKING THESE DECISIONS SO THAT AS WE WORK TO GIVE OUR TEACHERS A MORE COMPETITIVE SALARY, THERE ARE DOLLARS DOWN THE ROAD IN OUR OPERATING BUDGET THIS ISN’T, IN MY MIND, A SHORT-TERM DECISION IT IS HOW DO WE SUSTAIN, RETAIN AND HIRE THE BEST TEACHERS ALL OF THAT TO SAY I DON’T THINK I’M GOING TO SUPPORT THE POSTPONEMENT BECAUSE I DO THINK THERE IS A MOTION ON THE TABLE THAT AT LEAST ALLOWS US TO MATCH WHAT THE REST OF THE COUNTY EMPLOYEES ARE GETTING IN TERMS OF RETIREMENT AND I WILL WAIT TO LISTEN TO THE REST OF MY COLLEAGUES AFTER THANK YOU SO I HAVE ONE GO BACK IS THERE ANYONE WHO HAS NOT SPOKEN WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK? MS. DERENAK KAUFAX WELL, I JUST WANT TO SAY I APPRECIATE — THIS IS A GOOD CONVERSATION TO HAVE I APPRECIATE THE COMMENTS THAT MS. CORBETT SANDERS HAS TALKED ABOUT, THE CHRONIC UNDERFUNDING OF OUR SYSTEM BY ALL THREE OF OUR FUNDING BODIES IS HOW WE GET TO THIS POINT WE VALUE OUR TEACHERS AND WE VALUE OUR EMPLOYEES AND THEN I’M JUST GOING TO PIGGYBACK ON WHAT MS. HOUGH SAID, THIS REALLY IS, TONIGHT’S CONVERSATION IS TO KEEP THIS CORE BENEFIT INTACT IT IS FOR THE SUSTAINABILITY OF THIS PROGRAM OVER TIME I THINK THIS IS — I HAVE TALKED TO MANY OF YOU WE’VE — I HOPE YOU KNOW WE ARE LISTENING AND WORKING VERY HARD WE HAVE AS A BOARD TALKED ABOUT THIS FOR OVER A YEAR NOW I DO ALSO BELIEVE THAT THERE IS AN OPTION OUT THERE THAT I WILL BE ABLE TO SUPPORT I DO WANT TO JUST SAY RIGHT NOW UP FRONT THAT FOR TONIGHT I DO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS ISN’T SOMETHING WE WANT TO LOOK AT FOR EMPLOYEES WHO ARE CURRENTLY WITH US BUT NOT VESTED AND IT IS SOMETHING THAT I WOULD BE LOOKING AT, WHATEVER CHANGES WE MAKE WOULD BE FOR NEW HIRES ONLY BUT I WOULD NOT BE AT THIS TIME SUPPORTING THE MOTION ON THE TABLE ALL RIGHT I HAVE TWO GO BACKS MS. McLAUGHLIN SO A COUPLE OF THINGS FIRST OF ALL, TO THE QUESTION ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY SOME OF MY COLLEAGUES BROUGHT UP

AS WE KNOW, FCERF ON THE COUNTY SIDE, ERFC ON THE SCHOOL SIDE, THERE HAVE BEEN NO REPORTS OF SUSTAINABILITY PROBLEMS NONE SO THIS NOTION THAT WE HAVE TO BE MAKING A DECISION TONIGHT BECAUSE WE CARE ABOUT YOU, BECAUSE WE’RE WORRIED ABOUT THE SUSTAINABILITY OF THIS GREAT BENEFIT THAT ATTRACTS AND RETAINS YOU TO BE HERE IS, IN MY MIND, A FALSE NARRATIVE I’M REALLY WORRIED ABOUT WHY MY COLLEAGUES ARE WANTING TO CONTINUE THE FALSE NARRATIVE THE CHRONIC UNDERFUNDING OF COURSE WE ARE UNDERFUNDED THE PROPOSAL TONIGHT THAT I’M HEARING SUPPORT LEANING TOWARD IS 2.3 MILLION DOLLARS THAT IS NOT EVEN .2% OF OUR OPERATING BUDGET THAT IS NOT A REASON TO BE VOTING TONIGHT WHAT I AM CONCERNED THAT I’M NOT HEARING MY COLLEAGUES UNDERSTAND IS THAT AS OF RIGHT NOW, WHAT OUR SCHOOL EMPLOYEES PAY INTO THIS SUPPLEMENTAL RETIREMENT PLAN IS FAR HIGHER THAN WHAT COUNTY EMPLOYEES PAY INTO THEIR PLAN THAT RIGHT NOW THEY HAVE A RULE OF 55 IN 30 YEARS OF SERVICE THE PLAN THAT A LOT OF MY COLLEAGUES SEEM TO WANT TO RALLY AROUND IS THE RULE OF 90 THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF WHAT THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS IS GOING TO DO IF WE ALREADY HAVE AN INEQUITABLE APPROACH TO OUR COUNTY PENSION SYSTEM, WHICH SOME OF OUR SCHOOL EMPLOYEES ARE IN FCERS SO WE DON’T HAVE CONSISTENT RETIREMENT BENEFITS FOR 100% OF OUR EMPLOYEES BUT MY GOAL ALL ALONG WAS THAT JUST LIKE WITH ANNUAL RAISES, STEP INCREASES, COLAS, THAT THERE SHOULD BE PARITY AND EQUITY IN WHAT SCHOOL EMPLOYEES GET EACH YEAR COMPARED TO WHAT COUNTY EMPLOYEES GET EACH YEAR THIS IS THE EXACT SAME THING WE HAVE A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY BECAUSE THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS HAVE JUST MADE A PROMISE TWO DAYS AGO TO NOT ONLY NOW GIVE US AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE ANY POTENTIAL CHANGES TO ERFC MOST CLOSELY ALIGNED WITH WHAT THE COUNTY IS GOING TO DECIDE TO DO IN THE NEXT YEAR, BUT WE ALSO PREVENT THE FACT THAT WE MAKE CHANGES TONIGHT AND THEY COULD BE MAKING CHANGES THAT STILL END UP MAKING OUR EMPLOYEES PAY MORE THAN THEIR EMPLOYEES WILL BE EXPECTED TO CONTRIBUTE I DON’T KNOW HOW THAT IS FAIR TO OUR EMPLOYEES WE ALSO HAVE THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MODELING BEST PRACTICE WHICH IS TO ENGAGE KEY STAKEHOLDERS, ESPECIALLY THEIR EMPLOYEES AND I’M NOT HEARING MY COLLEAGUES UNDERSTAND THAT WE DIDN’T DO THAT FOR YOU AND WE OWE THAT TO YOU I’M NOT TRYING TO EARN ANY PUBLIC BROWNY POINTS HERE TONIGHT I GENUINELY THOUGHT WHEN I SAW THIS FLURRY OF MY COLLEAGUES PUTTING TOGETHER MOTIONS, THINGS WE HAVEN’T EVEN DISCUSSED AND ENGAGED WITH YOU GUYS ON, WHY THE RUSH? SO I’M GOING TO MAKE ONE LAST CLARION CALL I REALLY AM DISAPPOINTED IF YOU WEREN’T GOING TO SUPPORT THE DEFERMENT YOU HAVE SPOKEN WHY I THINK IT IS A MISTAKE AND I REALLY THINK THAT MR. WILSON AND I ARE TRYING TO BOTH PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY HERE TO DO THE BEST THING, ANYTHING WE DO TONIGHT WE ARE CHASING A MOVING TARGET BECAUSE THE SUPERVISOR ARE VERY WELL GOING TO BE SPENDING THE NEXT YEAR DOING A REALLY GREAT JOB ENGAGING THEIR EMPLOYEES IN THE PROCESS BEFORE I GO TO MORE GO BACKS, I HAVE MORE PALCHIK THANK YOU I WILL SPEAK BRIEFLY TO THIS AMENDMENT I WILL NOT BE SUPPORTING THE DELAY WHILE I DID BRING UP THE MOTION TO HAVE THE INITIAL DELAY I DO THINK MYSELF INCLUDED DEFINITELY THERE IS QUITE A BIT WE NEED TO GET OURSELVES UP TO SPEED AND HAVE MORE INFORMATION I DO FEEL THAT AT THIS POINT IT IS OUR DUTY TO MAKE A DECISION BASED ON THE INFORMATION THAT WE HAVE AND I DO HOPE THAT AS WAS SHARED AT OUR BUDGET WORK SESSION WE ARE LOOKING AS MS McLAUGHLIN LIKES TO POINT OUT PARITY WITH THE COUNTY IN THE LONG TERM I’M NOT SURE WHAT IT WILL TAKE TO LOOK AT HOW OUR FUND, OUR PENSION CONTINUES TO BE SUSTAINABLE I WILL CONTINUE TO DO MY RESEARCH TO SEE WHAT HAS BEEN DONE ACROSS THE COUNTY, ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO BALANCE THE EFFECTS, THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS ON RECRUITING AND RETAINING EMPLOYEES WITH THE POSITIVE EFFECTS OF BRINGING OUR PENSIONS

TO A CONTINUED STATE, ESPECIALLY PRECRISIS LEVELS OF CONTINUE TO FUND BENEFIT BECAUSE IN THE LONG TERM IT IS MY HOPE WE CAN KEEP THAT BEYOND THIS BOARD AND BEYOND FUTURE BOARDS SO THAT BEING SAID ON THAT, THERE IS I THINK ENOUGH INFORMATION FOR US TO MAKE A DECISION TONIGHT SO I WILL NOT BE SUPPORTING THIS MOTION THANK YOU MR. WILSON THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR THE ERFC IS A UNIQUE BENEFIT TO FAIRFAX COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOL EMPLOYEES AND WHAT I HEARD TONIGHT WERE WORDS LIKE THIS IS HAPPENING ABRUPTLY I KNOW WE AS A BOARD HAVE HAD DISCUSSIONS ON TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THE PLAN, WHAT THE IMPANGT WOULD BE AND THE CHANGES FROM THE COMMUNITY PERSPECTIVE AND THE MEMBERS’ PERFECTIVE OF THE ERFC, IT IS ABRUPT I ALSO HEARD MENTION THAT THIS IS A LITTLE BIT LIKE REARRANGING THE DECK CHAIRS IF ON THE ONE HAND WE ARE GOING TO DIMINISH THE ERFC AND THEN TALK ABOUT PAY INCREASES IT IS, I THINK, A — IT IS INCONSISTENT AND I THINK THAT ANALOGY OF MAYBE REARRANGING THE DECK CHAIRS IS APT TO WHAT THIS — THESE CHANGES WOULD BE AND LASTLY, THE CHANGES THAT I THINK THE BOARD IS HEADING TOWARDS TONIGHT REALLY SEEM TO BE A LITTLE BIT LIKE TINKERING WE CAN’T COME BACK THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU TINKER WITH THIS IS A PLAN THAT SHOULD BE STABLE INDEFINITELY AND SO THE MERE FACT THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT CHANGING FUNDAMENTAL ASPECTS OF THIS SUCH AS HOW THE FINAL AVERAGE IS CALCULATED, WHAT YEAR ARE YOU ABLE TO RETIRE, HOW THE COLA IS IMPLEMENTED, THESE SORTS OF CHANGES, IF THE PLANNING IS RIGHT UPFRONT, HOPEFULLY YOU DON’T HAVE TO MAKE THOSE KIND OF CHANGES THE CHANGES WE ARE TALKING ABOUT TONIGHT, HOWEVER, I’M SENSING THAT MAYBE THIS BOARD THINKS WELL, IF WE DON’T QUITE GET IT RIGHT THIS YEAR WE’LL COME BACK TO IT I THINK THE ADVANTAGES OF SAVING A LITTLE BIT OF MONEY THIS YEAR FAR OUTWEIGHED TO TAKING THE TIME TO DO THIS IN A WAY THAT IF WE ARE GOING TO DECIDE TO REDUCE THE ERFC BENEFITS, WE SHOULD DO IT RIGHT WE SHOULD DO IT IN CONCERT WITH THE COUNTY MRS. SCHULTZ SO, I’M SORRY CAN I — THIS IS — THIS HAS BEEN A, WHILE IT SEEMS LIKE WE HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOREVER, SOME OF THIS HAS BEEN TRANSPIRING RECENTLY CAN I ASK, THIS IS A QUESTION I SORT OF ASKED LEADING UP TO TODAY I DON’T KNOW IF IT IS MOST APPROPRIATE TO ASK TO MS MICHAEL OR MS. QUINN OR ACTUALLY MR. PARRIS OR DR. LOCKARD YOU CAN FLIP A FOUR SIDED COIN TO DECIDE WHO IS GOING TO TAKE THIS A FEW YEARS BACK, THIS IS FOR MY COLLEAGUES, I’M GOING TO TRY TO ANALOGIZE THIS A FEW YEARS BACK WE HAD A BUDGETARY SURPRISE HIT US ABOUT A MONTH AFTER WE PASSED A BUDGET IN THE FORM OF 7.6 MILLION DOLLAR TEXTBOOK REQUEST WE WERE SOMEWHAT STUNNED THAT IT WASN’T PRESENTED WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF THE BUDGET AND THAT HAD WE HAD IT AT THE TIME WE MAY HAVE MADE DIFFERENT CHOICES I ASK THAT BECAUSE IT IS ALMOST IN THE OBVERSE THAT I FEEL AND I APPRECIATE THAT MS. PALCHIK POSTPONED IT, I’M NOT SURE WHY WE POSTPONED IT TO THIS DATE I FEEL LIKE WE SORT OF, IN A NOT PARTICULARLY ELOQUENT OR WELL-MANAGED PREVIOUS BOARD MEETING WE SORT OF PICKED THIS ON THE CALENDAR I’M WONDERING IF IT ISN’T BETTER FOR US TO DO THIS, AND I LOOK AT MY WATCH THAT IS NOT A WATCH, IN ABOUT 20 DAYS OR SO WE ARE GOING TO BE HAVING A BUDGET CONVERSATION I WOULD SAY WHAT IS THE HARM IN US TAKING, YOU KNOW, A LITTLE BIT OF TIME NOT A YEAR, I’M NOT

IN FAVOR OF A YEAR, I WILL SPEAK TO WHY I FIRST WANT TO ASK THIS QUESTION WHY CAN WE NOT CONSIDER THIS CHANGE OR ANY CHANGE OR NO CHANGE WITHIN THE FULL CONTEXT OF THE BUDGET CONVERSATION WE ARE LITERALLY ON THE BRINK OF HAVING? AND SO THAT WE CAN LOOK, I MEAN, JUST THIS EVENING IN OUR WORK SESSION THAT PROCEEDED THIS MEETING, OH, MY GOSH, WE ARE INTO OUR NINTH HOUR OF MEETINGS TODAY OR SOMETHING THAT THERE ARE STILL MOVING PARTS AND EACH MOVING PART POTENTIALLY PRECIPITATES A DIFFERENT DECISION BY ALL 12 BOARD MEMBERS AND IN THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS SHOULD ONE OR ANOTHER OF THESE PARTS FALL INTO PLACE ONE WAY OR ANOTHER WAY, IT COULD INFORM A DECISION ON THE NEXT ITEM THIS REALLY IS A HOLISTIC APPROACH AT NOT JUST — AND THIS IS WHERE I’LL SEPARATE MR WILSON FROM WHAT YOU ARE SAYING, THIS ISN’T ABOUT THIS YEAR I AGREE THIS IS NOT AN ATTEMPT TO BALANCE THIS BUDGET AND I SPOKE VERY SUCCINCTLY EARLIER, I’M LOOKING FOR A WAY TO NOT IMPACT TEACHERS BUT TO MANAGE OUR LONG-TERM OBLIGATIONS MAYBE THAT IS A LITTLE BIT OF WHAT MS. HOUGH WAS GETTING TO WHY CAN WE NOT HAVE THIS CONVERSATION HOLISTICALLY WITH THE OTHER BUDGET DECISIONS WE ARE ON THE BRINK OF MAKING? AND DON’T TELL ME, WELL, YOU JUST NEED TO KNOW NOW NO, YOU DON’T WHAT IS ANOTHER REASON? SO WE ARE TRYING TO FLIP — I TOOK THAT ONE OFF THE TABLE YOU CAN’T ANSWER THAT WE ARE TRYING TO FLIP THE FOUR SIDED COIN SO WHEN WE POSTPONED THIS DATE, THE THINGS WEIGHING HEAVY IN OUR MIND IN TERMS OF THE TIMING OF THIS, IN ADDITION TO THE BUDGET, WERE IN ORDER TO IMPLEMENT THE CHANGES TO THE SYSTEM BY JULY 1st WE NEED THE DECISION FOR THE VENDOR TO COMPLETE THE WORK THAT IS PIECE ONE PIECE TWO IS OUR ACTUARY IS WAITING TO COMPLETE OUR ACTUARIAL VALUATION BASED ON PLAN CHANGES THE TIMING IS CRITICAL BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO HAVE THAT DONE IN ORDER FOR OUR FINANCIAL REPORTS TO BE DONE WITH EXTERNAL AUDITORS WHEN WE WERE COMING UP WITH THE DATE WE COULD DELAY IT, THIS WAS THE ABSOLUTE LATEST WE COULD DELAY IT MRS. STRAUSS HOLD ON I JUST GOT AN ANSWER SO ABSOLUTE LATEST IS, I MEAN, IS THIS A DEFINITIVE, ARE WE HAD BRINKSMANSHIP IF WE DON’T MAKE A DECISION TONIGHT EVERYTHING — THEN EVERYTHING GROINDS — GRINDS TO A HALT? TELL ME THAT IS THE FACT I WAS PARTICULARLY FRUSTRATED ON MONDAY ABOUT THE DISCUSSION ABOUT THE ACTUARIAL VALUATION OF THE UNFUNDED LIABILITY AND THE FACT THAT WE WERE SPENDING TIME TALKING ABOUT AN UNFUNDED LIABILITY AMOUNT THAT IS AT LEAST 16 MONTHS OLD I’M NOT HAPPY WITH THAT I’M OVERTLY DISPLEASED WITH THE FACT WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT AN UNFUNDED LIABILITY THAT IS WELL NORTH OF $800 MILLION IT IS NOT $693 MILLION SO THAT IS THE PART MR. WILSON AND MS. McLAUGHLIN, THAT LOOMS FOR ME YOU CAN PROCLAIM IT IS NOT DISASTROUS, BUT IN ANOTHER 15 MONTHS, YOU TAKE $810 MILLION OR $830 MILLION UNFUNDED LIABILITY WE ARE HAVING ENOUGH DIFFICULTRY SOLVING NOW, IF WE DON’T SOLVE IT UNTIL 12 OR 15 MONTHS, ARE WE — I CAN’T DO THAT TO EMPLOYEES STATES GO BANKRUPT OVER PENSION SYSTEMS AND PART OF OUR BUDGET PROBLEM LATER IS A VRS BACK PAYMENT BECAUSE WE ARE HAVING TO BRING THE VRS UP TO A GREATER DEGREE OF FUNDING TO KEEP IT NOT ONLY SOLVENT, BUT TO MAKE SURE IT IS THERE FOR EMPLOYEES THAT THE PROMISE WE HAVE MADE TO EMPLOYEES IS THERE TO PAY OUT SO TELL ME IT IS AN INDEFATIGABLE RED LINE IT IS A RED LINE? IT IS? ALL RIGHT

ALL RIGHT, I HAVE MRS STRAUSS AND I WILL TAKE A TURN AND WE HAVE MRS. HOUGH THANK YOU I WILL LOOK FORWARD, ACTUALLY, TO MS. HYNES AMENDMENT WHICH I WILL BE SUPPORTING AND THERE IS A FOLLOW ON MOTION FROM MS SCHULTZ I WILL ALSO BE SUPPORTING I WILL NOT SUPPORT THE DELAY I BELIEVE THAT A DEFINED BENEFIT PENSION PLAN IS APPROPRIATE FOR THE PROFESSION OF EDUCATORS THERE IS A LOT OF PRESSURE THESE DAYS FOR US TO GO BACK TO 401(k)s THAT IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR THE EDUCATION PROFESSION PEOPLE GO INTO TEACHING FOR THE LOVE OF CHIRP — CHILDREN, FOR THE PASSION OF TEACHING YES, IT IS NOT A HIGHLY PAID PROFESSION IT IS IMPORTANT WE PROVIDE AS BEST WE CAN OPPORTUNITIES TO SAVE AND INVEST FOR RETIREMENT ERFC WAS INVENTED IN 1973 BY THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS AND IT WAS ORIGINALLY INTENDED TO BE A SUPPLEMENT TO SOCIAL SECURITY AND IT WAS ORIGINALLY INTENDED TO THEN BE PHASED OUT ONCE PEOPLE WERE OF SOCIAL SECURITY AGE THERE HAVE BEEN A NUMBER OF CHANGES OVER TIME WITH THE ERFC ONE WAS SOME YEARS AGO WHEN IT WAS TURNED INTO A MORE TRADITIONAL DEFINED BENEFIT IT IS NO LONGER A SUPPLEMENT TO SOCIAL SECURITY WHERE IT BASICALLY THEN DECLINES AFTER SOCIAL SECURITY AGE OBVIOUSLY, THE SOCIAL SECURITY RETIREMENT AGE HAS CHANGED OVER TIME VRS HAS CHANGED OVER TIME THE FUNDED CAPACITY RIGHT NOW OF ERFC IS ABOUT 76% WE HAVE MADE GOOD PROGRESS SINCE THE RECESSION, WHICH IS A GOOD THING AND OUR — THE ADVICE WE ARE HEARING IS GOING FORWARD IF WE ARE WISE AND OUR TRUSTEES ARE WISE, HOPEFULLY WE WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP THIS PENSION PLAN ROBUST BUT IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE LOOK TO THE FUTURE AS WELL SO THAT WE CAN SUSTAIN A DEFINED BENEFIT PENSION PLAN OVER TIME I DO SUPPORT WHATEVER CHANGES WE MAKE BUT IT WOULD ONLY BE FOR NEW HIRES THERE IS A CONCERN TO BREAK PROMISES FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE READY EMPLOYEES HERE PEOPLE ARE LIVING LONGER THE AVERAGE RETIREMENT AGE IN FAIRFAX COUNTY IS 62 I AM READY TO VOTE ON SOME MODEST PLAN CHANGES TONIGHT IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE ALSO WORK WITH THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS NEXT YEAR THEY ARE LOOKING AT THEIR PLANS THEIR PLAN IS QUITE DIFFERENT THAN OURS THEY HAVE SEVERAL PLANS AND WE ALSO, WHEN VRS AND THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY MADE CHANGES IN VRS, HOW IT WAS GOING TO BE FUNDED AND OUR OBLIGATION AND THE EMPLOYEES’ OBLIGATION TO VRS THERE WERE CHANGES AGAIN MADE IN THE AMOUNT OF CONTRIBUTION BOTH THE EMPLOYER AND EMPLOYEE PUT IN SO THERE HAVE BEEN CHANGES OVER TIME BUT AGAIN, WITH THE VIEWPOINT OF TRYING TO KEEP THIS PENSION FUND A DEFINED BENEFIT AND STRONG SO THAT IT IS THERE WHEN EVERYBODY RETIRES IT IS TOO BAD THAT WE ARE NOT FUNDED BETTER BY OUR FUNDING SOURCES A LOT OF US ARE VERY SAD WHEN WE LOST THE MEALS TAX THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS DID NOT CHOOSE TO INCREASE THE TAX RATE BUT I AM LOOKING AT THE MODEST CHANGES IN THE ERFC NOT JUST AS SOMETHING TO BALANCE THIS YEAR, BUT IT IS FOR THE LONG-TERM HEALTH OF A DEFINED BENEFIT PLAN THIS PLAN IS CURRENTLY FUNDED AT 76% I REMEMBER AT ONE TIME IT WAS FUNDED 110% VERY, VERY HEALTHY AND IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE CONTINUE TO KEEP AN EYE ON OUR ABILITY TO SUSTAIN THIS OVER TIME WE DON’T WANT TO BE THE POSITION, IN IRRESPONSIBILITY POSITION WHERE SOME JURISDICTIONS PENSION FUNDS WENT BANKRUPT THEY HAD TO TAKE BACK MONEY FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE RETIRED WE HAVE WATCHED THAT IN PRIVATE INDUSTRY THAT IS A TERRIBLE THING TO DO TO YOUR EMPLOYEES WE HAVE TO BE RESPONSIBLE INVEST WISELY, BE TRUE TO OUR EMPLOYEES AND ALSO RESPOND TO CHANGES IN REALITY OF SOCIETY SO FOR THAT REASON, I WILL BE SUPPORTING LATER SOME ADJUSTMENTS TO WHAT IS ON THE TABLE, BUT I AM READY TO VOTE TONIGHT WE DO HAVE TO HAVE EVERYTHING IN PLACE IF THERE ARE CHANGES, THEY NEED TO BE THERE AND WORKED ON FOR NEW HIRES SO AS WE HIRE PEOPLE WE KNOW WE ARE OFFERING THE KIND OF BENEFIT PACKAGE WE KNOW WE ARE GOING TO HIRE THANK YOU

THANK YOU I WILL TAKE A TURN ON THIS PARTICULAR MOTION I WILL NOT BE SUPPORTING YOUR DELAY MAKING SOME DECISIONS ON THE ERFC WE HAVE AS WE ALL KNOW, BEEN WORKING ON THIS FOR MANY, MANY MONTHS WE HAVE HAD QUITE A FEW WORK SESSIONS ON IT AND CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF QUESTIONS AND GIVE FULL CONSIDERATION TO THE VARIOUS OPTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN PUT IN FRONT OF US AS MRS. STRAUSS SAID, WE NEED TO MAKE SURE OUR PENSION PLAN DOESN’T GO DOWN THE ROAD SOME OTHER PENSION PLANS HAVE I DON’T THINK DELAYING DECISIONS ON WHAT WE THINK WE ARE ABLE TO DO IS GOING TO MAKE ANY OF THIS EASIER IF THIS MOTION DOESN’T PASS, I WILL BE SPEAKING LATER ABOUT MRS. HYNES’ AMENDMENT WHICH I DO SUPPORT AS WELL AT THIS TIME, IT MAY BE, WELL, WE’LL SEE IF THIS MOTION PASSES OR NOT BUT I WILL NOT BE SUPPORTING IT I HAVE TWO MORE GO BACKS MRS. HOUGH THANK YOU JUST A QUICK GOBACK I WANTED TO BE CLEAR BECAUSE WE’VE USED THESE WORDS SUSTAINABILITY AND I THINK AN IMPORTANT POINT THAT I DON’T WANT TO BE LOST IS WHEN I WAS TALKING ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY, I’M TALKING ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY OF OUR OPERATING FUND THE SOLVENCY OF THE FUND IS SOMETHING DIFFERENT BUT THE SUSTAINABILITY OF THE DOLLARS THAT WE HAVE ARE BEING IMPACTED BY THE FUND ITSELF AND AS AN EXAMPLE, THE CONTRIBUTION LAST YEAR WAS 5.6% BY THE EMPLOYER, FCPS, AND IS GOING UP TO 6.4% WHICH IS AN $11 MILLION TAKE FROM THE OPERATING FUND IT IS PROJECTED TO GO UP TO 7% EVERY PERCENT INCREASE IS ABOUT $14 MILLION THAT IS WHERE WE HAVE AN HONEST DISCUSSION ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY I THINK IT IS FAIR TO SAY I’M GOING TO COMMENT ON THE DECK CHAIRS I THINK IT IS QUITE VALID PER THAT CHART THAT SHOWS WHERE FCPS IS COMPARED TO THE MARKET, WE HAVE THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF DECK CHAIRS THEY ARE IN THE WRONG PLACE THAT IS ACCORDING TO THE EMPLOYEES THEMSELVES WHO ARE SAYING WE ARE NOT RETAINING, WE ARE NOT HIRING AND THAT THEY ARE LEAVING TO OTHER SCHOOL DISTRICTS SO IF THE AMOUNT IS RIGHT, BUT IT IS IN THE WRONG PLACE, WE DO NEED TO ADDRESS THAT AND I DID WANT TO ADDRESS THAT IN A GO BACK MR. WILSON THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR AND I WILL BE BRIEF I DID WANT TO ASK A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS FOLLOWING IN THE SHOES OF MS. SCHULTZ BECAUSE I THINK ONE THING THAT HAS BEEN BROUGHT UP BY SEVERAL OF THE MEMBERS HERE IS THE BOTH THE CONDITION OF THE ERFC AND I THINK MS. HOUGH MENTIONED THE SOLVENCY OVER TIME BUT ALSO ITS IMPACT ON OUR OPERATING BUDGET ANNUALLY AND ALTHOUGH WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT A BOARD FOR QUITE A WHILE AND I HAVE SPENT MY QUESTIONS TRYING TO ACTUALLY DRILL DOWN ON BOTH OF THOSE QUESTIONS TO SEE WHAT IS THE TRUTH THERE AND SO I HAVE — I DON’T THINK I’VE HEARD THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH SOLVENCY OF THE FUND AND I THINK I SEE AT LEAST FOUR TRUSTEES HERE TONIGHT SO PERHAPS WE COULD JUST CONFIRM THERE IS NO ISSUE WITH SOLVENCY OF THE FUND DR. LOCKARD, WOULD YOU LIKE TO ASK ONE OF THE BOARD MEMBERS — MAYBE JEANY CARR CAN — YES, THE FUNDS RATIO AT 76% IS ABOUT ARCH THE SPEAKER THAT REFERRED TO THE SURVEY ACROSS THE COUNTRY, THAT IS ABOUT THE AVERAGE FUNDED PERCENTAGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY OF PENSION PLANS THAT REFLECTS WHAT WE WERE BRIEFED IN OUR SESSION THAT IS CORRECT WITH THE PANEL SO THAT LEADS THE QUESTION OF THE IMPACT ON OUR OPERATING BUDGET EACH YEAR AND IT’S, I THINK NOT LOST ON

ANY OF THE SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS THAT WE HAVE MS. QUINN AND MS MICHAELS AS TRUSTEES OF ERFC WHO EACH YEAR LOOK AND UNDERSTAND BETTER THAN ANYONE WHAT THE IMPACT IS GOING TO BE ON THE OPERATING BUDGET OF OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM. NEXT YEAR WE NEED TO WORK SOMETHING OUT AND YOU NEED TO TELL US FROM A FUND PERSPECTIVE WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO REDUCE THE BURDEN ON THE SCHOOL’S OPERATING BUDGET ANNUALLY WE KIND OF GONE ABOUT IT BACKWARDS AND SORT OF FUMBLING AROUND WHY PART OF THE FRUITFULNESS OF OUR DISCUSSIONS HAS BEEN SOMEWHAT OBSCURED THE DECISION TO MODIFY THE PLAN TONIGHT AND IT’S BEEN MENTIONED THAT PEOPLE SUPPORT MRS SCHULTZ’S FOLLOW ON MOTION, I THINK TO AMEND THE PLAN LARGELY PRE-EMPTS THE DISCUSSIONS OF WORKING JOINTLY WITH THE COUNTY TO REVIEW PENSION PLANS INCLUDING ERFC AFTER WE DECIDE AND IN ESSENCE I THINK WE MAKE THE DECISION AND THEN WE CONSULT AND I AM REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE DOING THAT AND NO WAY I CAN SUPPORT MAKING THESE PLAN CHANGES PROPOSED MRS. MCLAUGHLIN JUST TO CLARIFY A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT WHAT MR. WILSON SAID BEFORE WE ACTUALLY VOTE THOSE OF YOU LISTENING TO THIS BOARD DIALOGUE HAVE HEARD PEOPLE SAYING THEY ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SUPPORTING MRS. SCHULTZ’S FOLLOW ON MOTION THAT SAYS THAT I MOVE TO ESTABLISH A WORK GROUP WITH THE BOARD OF MEMBERS FOR A COUNTY PENSION PLAN, I FULLY SUPPORT IT AND WHAT THE MOTION IS ABOUT I AM NOT SURE MY COLLEAGUES UNDERSTAND BUT I KNOW TALKING TO OUR STAFF BEFORE I FASHIONED OUR MOTION EARLIER TODAY YOU CAN’T KEEP CHANGING THESE PLAN EVER YEAR, AND MRS. STRAUSS AND CORRECT BUT YOU CAN’T CHANGE THE VERSION OF THE PLAN FOR A PORTION OF THE EMPLOYEES IF MY COLLEAGUES LIKE AND AGREE WITH MRS. SCHULTZ’S MOTION, THEN THE POINT IS TO VOTE FOR MY MOTION ON THE TABLE RIGHT NOW BECAUSE IT DOES ALLOW US TO CREATE THAT JOINT PENSION WORKING GROUP WITH THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS IT DOES ALLOW US TO EVALUATE WHAT WE CURRENTLY REQUIRE OF OUR EMPLOYEES TO PAY INTO WHAT THEY REQUIRE THEM TO PAY INTO AND HOW LONG IT’S PAID OUT TO THEM AND HOW LONG WE PAY OUT TO ALL OF YOU AND ALSO WE’RE LOOKING AT THE PORTION YOU CONTRIBUTE IT’S INTERESTING TO ME THAT THEY WANT TO TALK ABOUT HOW LONG YOU WORK BEFORE YOU CAN DRAW ON IT IF WE MAKE THESE DECISIONS TONIGHT THE MOVING TARGET THAT WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS DOES, AND MRS SCHULTZ WORRIES ABOUT PUTTING THIS OFF INDEFINITELY AND MRS. PALCHIK, THAT’S NOT WHAT THIS MOTION IS BUT THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS IS TO COME TO THE TABLE AND LOOK AT THIS THING WHY WOULD WE MISS THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THIS THOUGHTFULLY AND CONSISTENTLY AND NOT MISS THE CHANCE THAT THERE IS EQUITY AND PARITY IN THE PLANS WE OFFER OUR EMPLOYEES I AM NOT SURE WHY THIS BECAME SO COMPLICATED OF A MOTION FOR PEOPLE TO GRASP AND UNDERSTAND BUT VOTING THIS DOWN AND VOTING FOR A CHANGE TONIGHT, YOU CAN’T GO AND REOPEN THIS NEXT YEAR AND MRS. SCHULTZ’S MOTION IS MOOT, NO PURPOSE TO IT [APPLAUSE] ALL RIGHT I HAVE A GO-BACK BY DERENAK-KAUFAX AND I HOPE WE CONCLUDE OUR DISCUSSION SOON TO TAKE A VOTE ON THIS MOTION AND THEN DECIDE WHERE WE ARE, MRS. DERENAK-KAUFAX I WANT TO POINT OUT TO MY COLLEAGUES, IF YOU DO NOT RECALL

THAT IN NOVEMBER OF LAST YEAR THERE WAS A JOINT BUDGET WORK GROUP THAT WAS CONVENED AND WE AS A BOARD IN OUR LAST JOINT MEETING PRIOR TO THE LAST CONVERSATION WE HAD, PRIOR TO THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS SETTING A TAX RATE THERE WAS A WORKING GROUP SET UP AND THIS BUDGET WORK GROUP IS GOING TO BE THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS THE COUNTY BUDGET CHAIR, THE SCHOOL BOARD CHAIR AND WHOMEVER SITS IN THE BUDGET CHAIR POSITION THIS WORKING GROUP RATHER THAN ANOTHER GROUP CAN EASILY SERVE AS LOOKING AT PENSIONS AS PART OF THIS I WAS SO BUSY HAVING CONVERSATIONS TODAY WITH SO MANY PEOPLE THAT WERE CALLING ME I AM JUST NOW LOOKING AT MRS SCHULTZ WHO IS LISTED LAST ON HERE AS FAR AS THAT GROUP SO I WANT TO SAY THAT THERE ALREADY IS SOMETHING, THERE HAS ALREADY BEEN CONVERSATION ABOUT THIS AND WHERE WE ARE SO I JUST WANT TO BE CERTAIN THAT MY COLLEAGUES UNDERSTAND THAT AND WE CAN SPEAK FURTHER TO IT AND ASK STAFF AT THAT POINT WHEN MRS. SCHULTZ’S AMENDMENT IS UP AND TALK SPECIFICALLY WHERE YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU ARE DOING THERE WERE SPECIFIC WORK PLANS TO OUR JOINT BOARD PRESENTED, DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT DATE IT WAS MRS. MICHAEL? I BELIEVE WE SHARED THE TIMELINE OF OUR OVERLAPPING BUDGET CALENDARS WITH ALL THE FUTURE DATES OF FEBRUARY WORK SESSION YES, IT WAS FEBRUARY, NOT THAT LONG AGO AND AGAIN IT’S A WORKING DOCUMENT THAT CAN BE MODIFIED I WANT TO SPEAK TO THAT LATER I WANTED TO POINT THAT OUT TO MY COLLEAGUES NOW SO YOU HAD TIME TO THINK ON THAT, THANK YOU ALL RIGHT DO ANY OTHER BOARD MEMBERS WISH TO SPEAK? CORBETT SANDERS AND I DON’T KNOW DR. LOCKARD, I WILL LET YOU ANSWER THIS OR HAVE SOMEONE ON YOUR STAFF ANSWER IT BUT WITH THE CALL FOR AN ADDITIONAL INFUSION OF FUNDS INTO THE ERFC THIS YEAR, IF WE DON’T PUT THE FUNDS IN OR DON’T CHANGE THE ERFC THIS YEAR AND WAIT A YEAR DOES THE AMOUNT OF AN INFUSION OF FUNDS THAT IS REQUIRED BY THE ACTUARIES, DOES THAT INCREASE? IF WE DON’T FUND IT THIS YEAR YES, THAT WILL INCREASE THE FOLLOWING YEAR THAT WOULD BE DETERMINED BY THE ACTUARIES I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MUCH, BECAUSE ALL THE ASSUMPTIONS WILL BE PUT BACK TOGETHER BEFORE THE NEXT EVALUATION IS COMPLETE AND THEN YOUR ANNUAL REQUIRED CONTRIBUTION WILL BE CALCULATED AFTER THE EVALUATION IS COMPLETE SO IT CONTINUES TO DRAW DOWN THE FUNDS AVAILABLE FOR OPERATING THE REST OF THE SYSTEM, IF WE DON’T HAVE A WAY OF INFUSING IT BECAUSE YOU ARE ALSO LOSING A POTENTIAL YEAR OF INVESTMENT EARNINGS ON THOSE FUNDS AS WELL THERE IS A LOT OF DIFFERENT CALCULATIONS THAT HAVE TO GO INTO THOSE ACTUARY EVALUATIONS GREAT, THANK YOU ALL RIGHT, THE MOTION IS TO DEFER CONSIDERATION OF THE ERFC PLAN CHANGES NO LATER THAN MAY 24, 2018, TO PROVIDE FOR THE SCHOOL BOARD AND THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS TO WORK TOGETHER IN DEVELOPING A PENSION CHANGE PLAN IN INCLUSION OF FY18-19 BUDGETS ALL THOSE IN FAVOR ALL OPPOSED [COUNTING] THAT MOTION FAILS MADAM CHAIR I WOULD MOVE THAT THE BOARD ADJOURN INTO CLOSED SESSION FOR COUNSEL SECOND MRS. SCHULTZ SECONDED IT ALL RIGHT, MR. WILSON, WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPEAK TO YOUR MOTION JUST VERY BRIEFLY, THERE IS AN ATTORNEY GENERAL OPINION WRITTEN BY MARK HERRING THAT HAS APPLICABILITY TO THE DECISIONS OF CHANGES TO THE RETIREMENT PLANS AND I WOULD LIKE ADVICE OF OUR COUNSEL BEFORE DECISIONS ON THIS MRS. SCHULTZ I FOUND ABOUT THIS THROUGH MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY, I CAN’T IMAGINE IT’S A LONG CONVERSATION BUT I DO THINK IT’S THE DUTY OF THE BOARD TO UNDERSTAND THE LEGAL POSITION THERE IS, CONSIDERING THERE IS AN EXISTING ATTORNEY GENERAL OPINION ABOUT

POTENTIAL LEGAL OBLIGATIONS OR LACK THEREOF ON PART OF THE BOARD I THINK IT’S OUR DUTY TO AT LEAST HAVE A DISCUSSION MRS. HYNES YEAH, I NOTICED THAT BACK AND FORTH TODAY AS WELL IN THE EMAIL AND MR. FOSTER MADE CLEAR HE WAS AWARE OF THAT ATTORNEY GENERAL OPINION AND GAVE US PRETTY SUCCINCT AND CLEAR ADVICE DURING THE DAY, AND THAT WAS, I DON’T THINK THAT A CLOSED MEETING CONVERSATION COULD ADD MUCH TO IT IT WAS VERY CLEAR I FEEL I HAVE A LEGAL ADVICE I NEED TO GO FORWARD TONIGHT, SO I WILL NOT SUPPORT THE BUDGET ALL RIGHT, I SEE NO OTHER HANDS, THE MOTION — MADAM CHAIR MR. MOON I WILL SUPPORT THE MOTION TO GO INTO CLOSED MEETING I DID RECEIVE THE SAME ATTORNEY GENERAL OPINION EARLIER TODAY WE ALL GOT THE SAME TIME, PRETTY LATE OF THE DAY I READ IT, I THINK I HAVE MY OWN INTERPRETATION OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OPINION WHICH WAS SUBSEQUENTLY PRETTY MUCH CONFIRMED BY OUR COUNSEL’S ADVICE TO US AND AT THE SAME TIME SOME BOARD MEMBERS MAY HAVE QUESTIONS I WANT TO RESPECT THE RIGHTS OF SOME MY COLLEAGUES WHEN I ASK AND AT THE SAME TIME I DON’T WANT TO SPEND TOO MUCH TIME IN THE CLOSED MEETING KNOWING WHAT IS AHEAD OF US BUT I WILL SUPPORT THE MOTION MRS. DERENAK-KAUFAX I TOO WILL BE SUPPORTING IT FOR THE REASONS OUTLINED BY MR MOON, I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS I WILL ALSO BE SUPPORTING IT DON’T FEEL THAT I NEED MORE LEGAL ADVICE THAN WE RECEIVED ALREADY BUT IF IT GIVES OUR COLLEAGUES COMFORT, THEN AS LONG AS WE CAN BE BRIEF, I WILL SUPPORT IT MRS. MCLAUGHLIN I WILL SUPPORT THIS MOTION, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING AND HEARING FROM OTHER KEY STAKEHOLDERS THAT THE COUNTY ATTORNEY HAS A DIFFERENT OPINION AND SO IF THE COUNTY ATTORNEY HAS A DIFFERENT OPINION FROM OUR GENERAL COUNSEL, THEN I THINK WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT WHY THAT’S THE CASE MR. MCELVEEN MADAM CHAIR, UNDERSTANDING THAT WE HAVE OTHER LEGAL COUNSEL JOINING US AT 10 O’CLOCK, DOES THIS MEAN THAT THE CLOSED MEETING WOULD CONTINUE THROUGH THAT AND WHAT TIME COME OUT? TO GO INTO CLOSED MEETING, MADAM CLERK, WOULD WE NEED A SEPARATE MOTION I BELIEVE WE WOULD BEYOND WHAT WE DID WOULD YOU PLEASE DRAFT THAT FOR US IN CASE THIS MOTION PASSES THEN WE WOULD HAVE TO DO THAT THE OTHER ONE WE HAVE TAKEN CARE OF THE ONE THAT IS GOING TO BE LATE TONIGHT I WOULD URGE PEOPLE TO REMEMBER WE HAVE A LENGTHY DISCUSSION TO HAVE LATER TONIGHT MADAM CHAIR, MY POINT IS THAT WE HAVE OTHER COUNSEL JOINING US AND THAT WE ARE INCURRING LEGAL FEES FOR THAT AND CONTINUE THROUGH THAT CONTINUE THROUGH? WE HAVE AN ADDITIONAL CLOSED MEETING I SECOND THAT I AM SORRY IF I AM NOT CLEAR I AM SORRY, MR. MCELVEEN AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE REGULAR BUSINESS MEETING, WE ARE PLANNED TO HAVE A CLOSED MEETING, WITH EXTERNAL LEGAL COUNSEL AND KNOWING IT’S AT 9:30 AND THIS MEETING WILL MEET UP TO THAT AND WHY NOT CONTINUE THE CLOSED MEETING I HAVE A LOT OF LIGHTS, MRS CORBETT SANDERS GIVEN THE RECOMMENDATION OF MY COLLEAGUE, MR. MCELVEEN IF WE DECIDE TO DO THAT, WHILE THE CLOSED MEETING SESSION IS BEING DRAFTED OR THE VERBIAGE FOR IT COULD WE GO AHEAD AND DO THE CONSENT AGENDA AND THE NEW BUSINESS, AND THEN GO INTO CLOSED SESSION AND COME BACK AND COMPLETE THE ERFC DISCUSSION IF WE DO THIS, WE NEED TO GO INTO CLOSED SESSION FOR THE ONE ITEM THAT MR. WILSON MADE THE MOTION FOR, AND IF THIS PASSES THE CONSENT AGENDA ONLY TAKES A MINUTE THAT’S THE MOTION THAT I SECONDED AND SUPPORTED AND WON’T TAKE THAT LONG, AND I WOULD LIKE TO RESPECT THE TIME OF THE PUBLIC AND TO EXCUSE OURSELVES INTO AN EXTENDED CLOSED SESSION THAT HAS MULTIPLE PURPOSES IS NOT APPROPRIATE I AGREE AND WE NEED TO FINISH UP THE WORK, WE NEED TO FINISH

UP THE WORK ON THE AGENDA SO WITH THAT, MRS. MCLAUGHLIN, DID YOU HAVE A FOLLOW UP? I WAS GOING TO ECHO WHAT MRS SCHULTZ SAID AND MR. MCELVEEN’S POINT TO BE PRUDENT AND MAKE THIS SHORT AND NO, THE AUDIENCE IS HERE FOR THIS AND THAT CLOSED SESSION FOR THE OTHER MATTER IS NOT GOING TO BE FAST THE MATTER IS TO GO INTO CLOSED SESSION WHAT WE ANTICIPATE TO BE A BRIEF CONSULTATION WITH COUNSEL THOSE IN FAVOR RAISE YOUR HAND [COUNTING] ALL OPPOSED THAT MOTION PASSES MADAM CLERK, DO WE HAVE A MOTION? TO GO INTO CLOSED? I AM SORRY?
