Supervisor Targets Benefits for Part-Time Elected Officials
Last week, Ventura County Supervisor Peter Foy filed with the California Office of the Attorney General a proposed statewide ballot initiative that would prohibit local governments from providing health insurance, pensions or "any other benefit" beyond a salary to part-time elected officials. The proposal would affect members of city councils, special districts and school boards. The measure also would require that local governments disclose on the state controller's and local government websites compensation paid to elected officials.
