Legislative News - June Logan Wade Steen was appointed by Gov. Mike DeWine to serve on The STRS Board. His appointment term ends in September 2024. 1) Gov. DeWine terminated Steen's appointment just before the ballots were counted in the April 2023 STRS Board Election where active teacher Pat Davidson won in a landslide over incumbent Lard. 2) According to the law, Mr. Steen was terminated illegally. Nor was Mr. Steen given due process according to law when he was terminated. 3) Mr. Steen has not resigned his position and has filed suit to be retained and restored to it. 4) In his defense, ORTA has set up a donation site on its website so you can help Wade fight to retain his board seat. 5) Go to ORTA.org and scroll down to the Pension Defense Button. Click on it and follow the directions to make a contribution.
