November 14, 2022 – Letter from the SF

November 14, 2022


Please mark your calendars for Friday, November 18th. I will be presenting on that day to give you an update on the financial status of the Plan and to answer questions from you.
I’ll be meeting with participants from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. The hospital has generously offered to host us at:
Jackson County Fairgrounds Civic Center
2902 Shortcut Road
Pascagoula, MS
Brian Perrot from FCI Advisors, our investment consultant will be joining us and I hope to see you there.
If you are not able to join in person, you can watch later as the meeting will be recorded.
I encourage you to read my monthly reports to the Court and my letters here. Reading my monthly reports to Judge Bell and my letters here is the best way to stay up to date with accurate information.
If you are keeping up with those reports, you will have noted that our investments, like those of most every retirement trust in the country, are down as of September 30. I anticipate that we will not be as well positioned as of the October 1 valuation date as we have been in prior years. However, I do not anticipate making any recommendations for benefit changes.
If you have questions that I have not answered here on the website, please e-mail me. If you are wondering about something, others probably are too, and I will do my best to address all questions and concerns.

I am and will continue to be working for you.
