Election: public pensions take big hits

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

One takeaway from yesterday’s primary: voters expressed exasperation with public pension plans that they view as out of control. San Jose Mayor Chuck Reid’s much-watched pension reform measure, Measure B, won voter approval, as did a similar measure in San Diego. In San Jose, unions have called an 11 a.m. presser to announce they will challenge Measure B in the courts.

Add: Meanwhile, in Contra Costa County, conservative Mormon mayor of Danville Candace Anderson (pictured), who made pension reform a key element of her campaign, was expected to face a tough race for the Board of Supervisors against challenger Tomi Van de Brooke. Anderson won in a landslide.
