In response to David Sirota's article, "At PERA, Retirees Face Cuts While Wall Street Gets Millions" Bernard Douthit will be issuing a Colorado Open Records, CORA request to the Public Employees Retirement Association in order to review the 200+ contracts that PERA has with Private Equity firms that result in $140 million being paid to these firms each year.
