Love where you live!
Water Districts take note! Governor Brown has just come out with his pension reform recommendations. While many of the local agencies have already taken steps towards reforming pensions, our Water Disricts are far behind the curve, especially HWD. (See Gov. Browns reforms at the link below).
Since our elected Water Board officials won't speak up about their opinions on pension and benefit reform in general without being specific on the current MOU negotiations, we are only left to wonder if they are acting in the ratepayers best interests in the current negotiations. Given past performance and General Manager Weston's backing of his employees and their performance and value (and he is negotiating for us, the ratepayers), we can only assume not.
Time for all our state, local and municipal elected officials to take a serious bite out of the pension benefits. Good start Jerry but can you convince the rest of the liberal spenders in Sacramento to go along?
