Results of Active Police and Retiree Board Member Nominations

Date: Jan 20, 2023 Categories: Board, Events, News Articles, Press Release

Nominations for the Active Safety Police and Retiree Board Member seats concluded at 5:00 p.m. PST on January 17th. In order for a nominee to be eligible to proceed in these elections, they needed to have at least 10 signatures on their nomination petition by the deadline.   Current Active Safety Police Board Member, Lou Maggi, was the sole nominee for his seat. Since he was the sole nominee, there is no need for an election and Lou will continue his Board service through March 2027. Congratulations Lou!   However, we have two eligible nominees running for the Retiree Board Member seat: Bartlett (Chris) Brewster and John C. Hemmerling. Therefore, we will be proceeding with this election. All retirees will be mailed an election ballot on February 10, 2023 – please do not throw away your letter until after you have voted, as it contains a unique validation code that you will need to cast your vote! Voting will open on February 14th, and all votes must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. PST on February 28, 2023. Votes may be cast by phone or online – specific information about the voting process is contained in your election ballot letter and will also be posted on the front page of SDCERS’ website once voting begins.
