Pension board needs to focus on real issues rather than chase haints

Emotions, real and perceived, have been rising in the meetings of the Macon Fire and Police Employees Retirement System Board for months. There have been three main actors, Mayor Robert Reichert, former County Commission Chairman Charlie Bishop and former Fire Chief Jimmy Hartley. The latest salvo in what has been described by Hartley as “war” is the effort to remove Lynn Wood, member of the board, because he doesn’t live in the city. The validity of any decisions he’s been a party to are open to challenge.
