You know, I just love it when people who should know better jump on their keyboards with an opinion before checking ther facts.
I’m scrolling through the Register’s Orange Punch Blog and I find this post by Steven Greenhut titled “Corona Protects His Own Retroactive Pension Spike”
Greenhut opens by claiming that Sheriff Corona was just protecting his own pension spike when he spoke out against Moorlach’s Folly. Unfortunately, Jabbering Jabba the Greenhut cracked his nut again rushing to judgement on something he knows nothing about.
Sheriff Corona, like every other elected County Official is covered under the 2.7@55 pension rate, and like all other county employees under this plan, is paying for that increased benefit.
Steven, you’re an editor of a major news publication. The least you can do is a little fact checking. The information you need can be found on the County website under the MOU’s. Pay particular attention to the January 2003 Salary Resolution (page 97) and Appendix A, and the Administrative Management MOU.
