DO THEY DESERVE A PENSION?
Long after March 15th, when the fate of Mayor Carlos Alvarez and County Commissioner Natasha Seijas is decided, and long after a vote to eliminate the position of County Manager...
All three will stick taxpayers with a massive bill.
All three will potentially end up being "fired" from their jobs, Alvarez and Seijas through recall, and Burgess through a vote to eliminate his position.
Yet, all three will collect lifetime pensions that all of us will have to pay.
Also remember that both Alvarez and Burgess will collect six figure pensions for the rest of their lives.
So the question is:
If you are recalled or your position is eliminated, do you deserve a pension?
