Arthur Drummond


I taught music at North Providence High School for 29 years. I retired in 1997 to answer a call to full time ministry. At the time I was promised an 3% annual COLA as part of my retirement package. Like so many other teachers, I had faithfully paid into the retirement system fully expecting that the state would keep its promise which it did not. Although I have had some years of paid church staff work and my wife has been able to work at times, the broken promise has affected us deeply. I am now 77 years old and time is running out for me and many others for Rhode Island to make this right.
