CSU-ERFSA State Council Endorses Jelincic for CalPERS Retiree Seat

The State Council of the California State University Emeritus and Retired Staff Association has endorsed the candidacy of J.J. Jelincic for the retiree seat on the CalPERS Board of Administration.

Jelincic also has been endorsed by the Retired Public Employees Association of California (RPEA), an organization that CSU-ERFSA Supports.

CSU-ERFSA Executive Director Harold Goldwhite said that "while there are two worthy candidates for this position, the State Council of CSU-ERFSA has determined that the stated positions of Mr. Jelincic on a number of issues are closer to CSU-ERFSA's goals than those of his opponent, and that he will represent the interests of thousands of CSU retirees represented by CSU-ERFSA effectively."

Voting in the election begins on August 30, 2019, and ballots must be received by September 30, 2019. Only retired CalPERS members (excluding survivors and beneficiaries) will be able to vote. Ballots can be cast online, by phone, or by mail.

Turnout in CalPERS Board elections traditionally has been very low. CSU-ERFSA urges all those eligible to vote in this election to cast ballots. The votes of CSU-ERFSA members could make the difference!

Jelincic is an economist and Chartered Financial Analyst® who holds a B.A. in economics and an M.B.A. in finance. He has served two previous terms on the CalPERS board.
