Michael Pelletier
It has been a pleasure to serve on the Advisory Board for the past two years. During that time, we have addressed Time Service Connections, retiree/survivor benefits and medical applications. I will continue to advise our Board of Trustees responsibly to maintain the fund. I have been with JSO for 13 years. Therefore, I have a continued and vested interest in the management of our fund. As our membership pool continues to become reduced, it is imperative to maintain a motivated committee. My current assignment is with the Canine Unit.
