CalPERS Election Brings New Public Agency Board Rep
Oct. 11, 2018
The election results are in for the active public agency representative position on the CalPERS Board of Administration (Board) and Corona Police Sergeant Jason Perez has won the seat, receiving nearly 59 percent of the vote. He will replace four-time incumbent and current CalPERS Board President Priya Mathur.
The active public agency member seat represents CalPERS members employed by cities, counties, and special districts. Jason Perez has spent 24 years as an employee of the City of Corona and currently serves as the President of the Corona Police Officers Association. He has been vocal in urging CalPERS to abandon their pursuit of environmental and social investment programs and to instead focus exclusively on maximizing investment returns to ensure that local agencies can retain employees and keep their commitments.
Perez will begin serving his four-year term November 1. Additionally, two other incumbents ran unopposed for two Board seats up for re-election: Theresa Taylor, the state member representative; and Rob Feckner, the school member representative.
