Police officers and firefighters from throughout the state hear about terror-related investment risks and how to avoid them. State Treasurer Sarah Steelman, who has been fighting to have money from MOSERS – the Missouri State Employees’ Retirement System – withdrawn from companies that invest in terrorist countries, wants to extend this idea to first responders … and eventually to all Missourians. Steelman hosted a Jefferson City summit attended by first responders who were given anti-terrorism investment advice from experts in the field. Among them: Frank Gaffney, a former Assistant Defense Secretary who is the founder and president of the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Security Policy; and Roger Robinson, president and CEO of Conflict Securities Advisory Group and a former Senior Director of International Economic Affairs at the National Security Council. The first responders are being urged to return home and ask their investment brokers where retirement funds are being invested. Steelman’s efforts to convince the MOSERS board to divest from companies investing in terrorist states has, so far, not been successful.
