Public Safety Referendum Campaign Update
December 15, 2020
Thank You Memphis!
On December 15, 2020, the final hurdle to achieve all of the goals of the Public Safety campaign was overcome.
The Memphis City Council passed the pension ordinance amendment necessary to restore the pension plan to officers and firefighters who had a pension and lost it. So, on January 1, 2021 all of the benefits that the MPA & MFFA set out to get back will be restored or in process to be restored.
Citizens of Memphis, we can never thank you enough for your support. You had our backs and we will always have yours! We promise to continue to fight the good fight every day to support our first responders and to protect and serve the citizens of this great city.
