DA’s Pension Payout
District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis’ pension would approach $250,000 annually assuming she finishes her current term in office. If she’s successful in her bid for mayor and serves eight years, she’s eligible for more than $305,000 a year.
Why It Matters
Dumanis will be forced to come up with a plan to deal with the city’s pension costs. As she does that, her own pension provides a stark reminder of how high public employee pensions could rise under the current systems and how tomorrow’s workers are being asked to pay the price.
In Her Words
Dumanis says that she will decline a city pension if elected mayor. She said there’s something wrong with a system that allows you to collect a pension bigger than your salary, as she likely will. “I didn’t create that system and I’m going to fix that system,” she said.
