The opinion of anyone who is now, or who is set to receive a pension from the city of San Diego should be considered when judging the accuracy of their statements. Does Mayor Jerry Sanders want to do anything that will hurt his pension? I don’t know. Maybe he is a bigger man, and would be willing to do the thing that would be best for the city, even if it caused him to get less. Again, I don’t know.

But the opinion of those who will lose pension $$ should be be taken in context. A law professor in some far away city is EXACTLY the kind of unbiased opinion I would consider valid. The status quo has an energy all its own. Nothing will change and that is often good for the old guard.

The reason we need to have some non-pension recipients involved and making the decisions. Or, before you give me your opinion, at least tell me if you will personally benefit from it.
