We Are Seeking Applicants from the State Police Retirement System (SPRS) for 2019 Election to the KRS Board of Trustees
Request for Nominations:
KRS 61.645 provides that one Trustee shall be elected by the members of the State Police Retirement Systems (SPRS) for a four year term. The next election for Trustees from SPRS will be held in early 2019 for the term beginning April 1, 2019 and ending March 31, 2023. Kentucky Retirement Systems is seeking applications from members of SPRS interested in serving as a Trustee.
Eligibility Requirements for SPRS Trustee:
Applicants must be an active, inactive, or retired member of SPRS. Applicants cannot be current or former employees of Kentucky Retirement Systems and cannot hold an office or position that is constitutionally incompatible with the position of Trustee. A person who has served three consecutive terms on the Board is ineligible to apply unless there has been at least four years since his or her last term ended.
Nominations by the Membership:
Individuals may also be placed on the election ballot by submitting a petition from the SPRS membership. Per Kentucky Revised Statute 61.645, the petition must contain the name, last four digits of Social Security number, and signature of no less than 1/10th of the number of members voting in the last election. Based upon 2015 election results, the petition would require a minimum of 85 (1/10th of 851 qualified votes) names, last four digits of Social Security numbers, and signatures from the current SPRS membership. Petitions to be included on the SPRS election ballot must be submitted to the Division of Internal Audit no later than November 30, 2018. Petitions should be mailed to Kristen Coffey at the address above.
