The OEA Board of Directors has endorsed Arthur Lard for reelection to the State Teachers Retirement System (STRS) Board representing active teachers.

Lard is a Business Education teacher in Portsmouth City Schools with 30 years of experience and has served as treasurer of his local association for more than 20 years. This background has served him well as an OEA representative on the STRS Board since 2019.

For Ohio’s teachers, the benefits provided by STRS are crucial to our economic security in retirement. It is important that we ensure that the members elected to the STRS Board are prepared, dedicated, and will protect our interests.

Arthur Lard is dedicated to ensuring all OEA members have secure, reliable pensions and access to health care benefits in retirement.
