TRUSTEES RETAIN SEATS IN UNCONTESTED SPRING ELECTIONS

Incumbent trustees Ed Montgomery (Columbus police) and John Wainscott (Cincinnati police, retired) will be sworn in to new four year terms to the OP&F Board of Trustees beginning June 6.

Montgomery was first appointed to the OP&F Board in December 2007, and elected to a full term in 2008. He successfully ran in 2012 and now will be serving his third full term as a trustee. He served as the Board chair in 2010-11 and again in 2012-13. He is scheduled to become chair again in June. Wainscott was appointed in December 2011 to fill the term representing retired police officers. He is entering his second full term as a trustee after winning election in 2012.

OP&F's investment portfolio value:

  Current value (4/26/16): $13.9 billion

Board of Trustees Committee Notes
(Motions approved by the Board are listed separately)

Further discussion on the topic will take place at a later date. Also discussed was the possibility for the Disability Committee to include more than three trustees.
