Reporters’ Roundtable 9/13/13: Police Pension Fund, Primary Races, and More A state rep threatens to remove the director of Ohio's Police and Fire Pension Fund, as tensions grow over protecting the future of those first responders. Will there be any money left 30 years from now? Friday morning on the Sound of Ideas, we'll also hear from state elected officials who come down on both sides of President Obama's stand on Syria. And now that the primary elections are complete, we'll look at some regional races for mayors seats that could make substantive changes in several communities. Join host Rick Jackson for the reporters’ roundtable, beginning at nine on 90.3.
