A coalition led by San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed filed an initiative with the AG yesterday to reform public pensions, according to Scott Lay, the publisher of the Nooner, a California Political Newsletter. The initiative is called the “Pension Reform Act of 2014.”
Democrats dominate the list of supporters of this statewide pension initiative – including Chuck Reed of San Jose, Pat Morris of San Bernardino, Miguel Pulido of Santa Ana and Bill Kampe of Pacific Grove. Anaheim’s Republican Mayor Tom Tait joins the list. Three of those cities have been Ground Zero in the pension-reform battle, according to Steven Greenhut at U-T San Diego.
