San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi is back again with a sequel to Prop. B, the modest pension-reform measure that failed in his city in November. As the San Francisco Chronicle reports, the public thought Adachi had thrown in the towel, but he is moving forward with a reform measure that is tougher than the one proposed by the city's mayor. San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener also is promoting pension reform. Even in the nation's arguably most liberal city, leading politicians are competing with each other over pension reform. Perhaps this is a sign of things to come. Some SF progressives realize that if pensions aren't reformed, there won't be much money left for the myriad government programs they care about.
