Special Trustee Vacancy Election

Pension board trustee Brad Landi resigned from the pension board effective December 8, 2020. Mr. Landi cited personal and professional obligations in making this difficult decision. He expressed his appreciation to the pension board, staff, and membership for the two years he served and the experience and knowledge he gained.

 

Mr. Landi's resignation has led to a vacancy on the Board. There is approximately one year remaining of his unexpired term. Our statute requires the pension board to set a date for an election to be held within 60 days of the vacancy. This means the Board needs to set this election date before February 6, 2021. (Note this deadline date only refers to the date the election is first held, not necessarily completed, due to the possibility of a runoff). This election is to complete the remainder of Mr. Landi's unexpired term which runs through December 2021.
