Call Demetri 


Judges' pensions are unconscionable!  

"I  will be refusing the gold-plated pension offered by the Judge's Retirement System.  With many judges receiving public pensions exceeding their old salaries I cannot, in good conscience, accept large sums from a fund which is severely under-funded (less than 34% as of this writing.)  I will accept NO JUDICIAL PENSION should I have the honor of serving as your Circuit Court Judge." 

Forty percent of ex-judges receive pensions that are higher than their old salaries. (Daily Herald, December, 2015)  Many make over $150,000 every year in retirement, and get a 3% annual inflation kicker!

BY REFUSING THE JUDGES' PENSION, Demetri will be giving back to the taxpayers approximately $117,000 per year upon his retirement.

Who you vote for judge IS important!

The right  judge remembers they serve the people.

They respect their constituents by NOT seeking a gold-plated pension.
