    San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed

    San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed has been in the headlines lately for his proposed pension reform initiative that would allow local governments to negotiate changes to government employees’ retirement benefits. Reed sued Attorney General Kamala Harris, a fellow Democrat, over the title and summary she assigned to the initiative, but a judge upheld it, making it unlikely that Reed’s initiative will qualify for the ballot this year. Still, the second-term mayor says he and the other mayors who support the initiative are not giving up on their efforts to scale back public employee pensions. Photos courtesy of Phil Kampel.
