Nomination papers to be available August 1

This fall, we will be conducting an election for our two elected members’ seats on the Massachusetts Teachers’ Retirement Board. The current incumbents are Jacqueline Gorrie, a retiree of the Taunton public schools, and Dennis J. Naughton, a retiree of the Millis public schools.
