Upcoming Election for Active General Board Member Seat

Date: Oct 08, 2021


You may recall SDCERS held elections earlier this year to fill the two active General Member seats on our Board of Administration, and the winners of that election were Bret A. Bartolotta and Sarah Mayen. Unfortunately for SDCERS, Sarah Mayen recently left active City service, which means she can no longer serve on SDCERS’ Board as a representative for active General Members. Therefore, SDCERS is holding another election to fill her vacated seat on the Board. The winner of this election will serve the remainder of her four-year term, ending March 31, 2025.
The nominations process for this election has begun. All active City General Members are eligible to run for this 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 General Member interested in serving on SDCERS Board, please be sure to self-nominate by October 29, 2021; all other active City General Members, please be sure to sign the nomination petition(s) of any candidate(s) you support!
If you are an active City General Member and have not received your nominations letter by October 14, 2021; 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 October 29, 2021. At that time, if there is only one nominee 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 and all active General Members will receive a letter with further instructions.
