Mayoral Candidate Fletcher on the Pension Initiative

From this morning’s Union Tribune in regard to the ballot measure to fix city pensions:

Fletcher said he won’t decide whether to support the ballot measure until a fiscal and legal analysis have been done. He also said he has concerns about stripping pensions away from newly hired firefighters, as the measure would do.

“It is clear we have to reform the pension system. I think everyone in San Diego should be rightly outraged at the abuses,” he said. “But it’s a complicated issue and we have to be careful in how we do it. In seeking a solution to a problem we have to solve, you can’t inadvertently make the problem worse.”
