I was working for the police department when City Maager Vola Lawson extended the life insurance benefit to City employees. I saw it as taking care of my life insurance needs in retirement and did not seek any additional insurance at that time when I was younger and in good health. When I finished my police career after 30 years I had in the interim developed significant health problems that would prevent me from obtaining life insurance on my own. The proposal to stop funding life insurance pulls the rug out from under me and my family's financial security five years after I've retired. I hope you'll reconsider this action and keep the promise made when I was working for the city.
