CalPERS Board Election Ends October 1
CalPERS is currently holding an election for the public agency seat on their Board of Administration. The public agency board member represents all active county, city, and special district employees on critical issues that directly impact the health of the CalPERS system. All public agency employees enrolled in CalPERS are eligible to vote and should have received the necessary election materials in the mail by now, in a bright blue envelope.
The two candidates in the race are Priya Mathur–the incumbent–and Jason Perez. To learn more about them, voters can read their candidate statements. Additionally, they participated in a candidate forum where they took questions from the audience and discussed the issues at length. In case you missed it, the recorded webcast is also available online.
Voting began on September 1 and goes through October 1. Voters can cast their ballots with traditional mail-in paper ballot process, online, or by phone. The CalPERS Board Elections webpage has more information on the election and how to vote.
