Vote on pension system overhaul postponed 

Supervisor Sean Elsbernd with the support of Mayor Gavin Newsom is pushing a charter amendment for the June ballot that would overhaul The City’s pension system to address the escalating costs of pension and retiree health benefits.

For it to make it on to the June ballot, it would take at least six votes by the full board.

On Thursday, Elsbernd requested the board’s Rules Committee postpone a vote on whether to send the measure to the full board for a vote.

“We have had a number of productive discussions with the various employee groups in the city and we have more to come,” Elsbernd said. “It’s been good dialogue. I do expect at some point in this process we are going to need to make amendments.”

The Rules Committee will hold a Jan. 28 meeting to vote on the proposed charter amendment.
