In the back and forth over Assemblyman and mayoral candidate Nathan Fletcher’s post Let’s be honest. Let’s be truthful. And let’s be direct., Rostrafarian Steve Rider posted an honest, truthful and direct question about this “leading by example” business.
This brings up an interesting question. One can only assume that on the off chance CPR is defeated either in the ballots or courts, DeMaio will turn down a pension as mayor as he did as a Councilmember. I know for a fact that Ray Ellis and Scott Sherman have also pledged to not accept a pension. If a pension were available to you (Fletcher) as the mayor, would you accept it?
For the record, Councilmembers Lorie Zapf and Kevin Faulconer have also turned down a pension from the City of San Diego.
Full Disclosure: In the June primary, Carl DeMaio has my support. In the November general election, whoever is not Bob Filner has my support.
