  • Our report today and Monday on Ohio’s pensions for public employees is the result of a collaboration among the state’s eight largest newspapers.
    Reporters from each newspaper are examining publicly funded pensions as Ohio lawmakers consider options for improving the solvency of these funds.
    Information supplied by the pension funds enabled reporters to identify thousands of public employees who are working in public office and collecting pension payouts at the same time, known as “double dipping.”
    That list was matched with the most readily available public directory, Ohio school superintendents, to produce this report.
    The newspapers participating with The Repository in this project are the Akron Beacon Journal, The Blade (Toledo), The Enquirer (Cincinnati), The Columbus Dispatch, Dayton Daily News, The Plain Dealer (Cleveland) and The Vindicator (Youngstown).
