Jason Perez was elected to represent active public agency members in California on the CalPERS Board of Administration, according to unofficial results reported by the $361.6 billion California Public Employees' Retirement System, Sacramento.
If election results are certified by Alex Padilla, California secretary of state, Mr. Perez will replace Priya Mathur on the 13-member board, according to a news release from CalPERS. Ms. Mathur, who also serves as board president, received 43% of the vote vs. 57% for Mr. Perez.
The board will vote on a new president at its meeting Jan. 22-24, a CalPERS spokeswoman said. Ms. Mathur's term on the board ends Jan. 15.
Two other seats were up for re-election this year. Theresa Taylor, vice president and secretary-treasurer for Service Employees International Union Local 1000 and the state member representative, and Rob Feckner, a glazing specialist for the Napa Valley Unified School District and the school member representative, each ran unopposed. Their results were certified by Mr. Padilla on June 8.
Mr. Perez is a sergeant for the Corona Police Department and president of the department's police officer association.
The board sets policy for retirement and health benefits for CalPERS.
