Why can't Chico have pension reform?
While our city "leaders" pale at the idea of taking on our local unionized public employees, the voters in San Jose and San Diego managed to pass critical pension reform legislation in their towns.

Please everyone do all you can to keep this in the news and being discussed. Maybe it is a way we can again breath, breaking through the union ice.
I keep thinking of how our 55 year old police chief after three years at the job retires in the prime of his "wisdom years" literally abandoning us for his pension. No we can't blame him. We set ourselves up, very foolishly I believe being duped by the unions grandiose retirement benefit. Talk about shooting ones self in the foot, Chico did it. It just does not make good sense. It must stop!

And NO mention of the pols that put this union crap in place for a few votes. We should be followinig the lead of San Diego and San Jose AND ALSO toss out any greedy hillbilly politicians that try to pull this crap on us again; the same holds true for the greedy teachers....throw out the underperforming teachers based on children's performance and reduce their pay to the 9 months (or less) they deserve.
These public employees sully the name of good unions founded to protect vulnerable men, women, and children from unscrupulous employers. All these public employees unions are are machines to provide arm twisting for greedy employees who were never part of the "downtrodden" but only out to gain unfair advantage.
