SACRAMENTO, CA – The California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) is conducting two elections this fall for the State and public agency representative seats on the CalPERS Board of Administration.

  • Theresa L. Taylor

The candidates for the public agency member position are:

  • Eleyne (Leyne) Milstein
  • Priya Sara Mathur (incumbent)

Candidates for the State member position are elected by, and represent, all active members working for the State of California. Candidates for the public agency member position are elected by, and represent, all active public agency members in the workforce. CalPERS State and public agency members active as of July 1, 2014, are eligible to vote. Ballots will be mailed to eligible voters on August 29, 2014. Ballots must be received by CalPERS no later than September 29, 2014, to be counted.
