My Commitment

I am the only candidate who will put the interests of employees and retirees – the CalPERS members – first.

That’s what I’ve done for 25 years as a union member, union leader and a founder of Californians for Retirement Security, the broad coalition formed in 2005 to fight back against the nonstop attacks on public employees and our pensions.

I was on the front lines opposing Governor Wilson’s raids on CalPERS, strongly backed Prop. 162 (The Pension Protection Act), and have spoken out repeatedly in the media against the countless anti-pension ballot proposals we’ve faced.


I will lead the fight to:

  • Protect and defend our defined benefit pensions from attacks.
  • Ensure high quality, affordable health care – including affordable long-term care.
  • Restore integrity and transparency at CalPERS.
  • Put employees and retirees – CalPERS members – first.
