Please attend the upcoming CalPERS Candidate Forum. Sorry, I haven’t been keeping this site up but have concentrated on Corporate Governance. However, another election cycle is coming up at CalPERS. State and local government employees will each elect a candidate. Retirees can’t vote for any of the candidates running in the current election cycle. However, once elected, they will make decisions that impact all of us.
Everyone attending will have an opportunity to ask candidates tough questions, which they will answer to a live audience and a much larger audience expected to view videos once posted on the Internet.
CalPERS Candidate Forum
- When: September 16, 2014 from 5 to 6:30 PM
- Where: CalPERS Auditorium at 400 P Street, Sacramento
- Moderated by: League of Women Voters of Sacramento County
Please attend. If members don’t show an interest in these Candidate forums, CalPERS won’t hold them in the future. You can’t vote. However, you can volunteer to help the candidate(s) of your choice.
