Yes, Councilmembers and other electeds should pay full share of pension

While this is the first year that any elected in Long Beach has paid toward the pension system, a reporter just asked if I thought we should pay the entire "employee share" instead of 1.8% that is being deducted.

"Of course we should," is my reply. And while we are at it, so should the City Attorney, City Prosecutor and City Auditor and the Mayor.

If this is the direction we are asking the employees to go, then we should be leading the march.
