Proposition B, which seeks voter approval for retirement benefit increases, is currently passing with a marginal percentage. These Days Host Tom Fudge spoke to City Attorney Mike Aguirre about his reaction to this news.
Aguirre: I think the people of San Diego are sending a very clear message that they want the city officials to put a stop to the pension crisis. They don't want anymore increases in pension benefits unless they're consulted in a way of a vote. And I think the message is that they want us to do everything that we can to restore the actuarial soundness of the pension system, including rolling back the pension benefits and finding a way to fund those benefits which are legal.
Proposition C, an amendment to allow outside contractors to bid for city work, is also passing with a wide lead. More election results»
