CalPERS has mailed ballots to all active and retired members to elect the two Member-at-Large positions on the CalPERS Board of Administration. Your PECG Board of Directors has unanimously endorsed David Miller for Position A and Michael Bilbrey for Position B for these two important Board seats.
The 13-member Board is responsible for administering retirement benefits for 1.8 million current and retired state and local agency employees (and their beneficiaries) as well as the health benefits for most of them. PECG has worked closely with David Miller, former President of the California Association of Professional Scientists (CAPS), for many years. In 2005, David was a co-founder of Californians for Retirement Security (CRS), a coalition which includes PECG. CRS has been active in protecting the defined benefit plan, improving CalPERS investment performance, and ensuring high quality and affordable health care. David has been endorsed by more than a dozen organizations representing state and local public employees, as well as State Treasurer John Chiang and State Controller Betty Yee.
Michael Bilbrey, also endorsed by PECG, other public employee organizations, and the majority of CalPERS Board members, is seeking re-election. Michael has served well on the CalPERS Board over the past six years, as demonstrated by signatures from nearly 10,000 active and retired members supporting his re-election. Defending the current defined benefit plan and retirement security is Michael’s top priority.
