Upcoming Elections for Active Safety Police and Retiree Board Member Seats

Date: Dec 28, 2022


SDCERS’ Board of Administration consists of 5 elected members, each of whom serve a four-year term before elections are held once again. The four-year terms for SDCERS’ active safety police Board Member, Lou Maggi, and retiree Board Member, Charlie Hogquist, are ending March 31, 2023. Therefore, SDCERS has begun the elections to fill these seats.
Nominations are open for these elections and all nominations and petition signatures must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. (PST) on January 17, 2023. All active City Safety Police Members and City retirees are eligible to run for the appropriate seat and have been mailed a letter, which contains a unique validation number and instructions explaining how to self-nominate and/or sign a nominee’s petition. Please retain this letter, as you will need your unique validation number in order to submit a nomination or sign an existing nominee's petition.  If you are an active City Safety Police Member or City retiree interested in serving on SDCERS’ Board, please be sure to self-nominate by the deadline; all other members in these two categories, please be sure to sign the nomination petition(s) of any candidate(s) you support!
If you are in either of these membership categories and have not received your nominations letter by January 2, 2023; if you lost your letter; or if you have any questions about the nomination process, please email SDCERShelp@electionservicescorp.com or call 1-866-720-4357, Monday – Friday, 6:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. PST. 

All nominations and signatures must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. PST on January 17, 2023. At that time, if there is only one nominee for each category with at least 10 petition signatures (the minimum requirement to move forward), an election will not be necessary. If there are competing nominations, then we will proceed with the election(s) and all members who are eligible to vote will receive a letter with further instructions.
