Congrats to George Diehr, CSU faculty member on the CalPERS Board

On the eve of the election for a new State Employees representative on the CalPERS Board of Administration, CFA President Lillian Taiz expressed her congratulations to outgoing board member, CSU San Marcos faculty member George Diehr.

Diehr served 12 years on the CalPERS Board including stints as vice president and chair of the investments committee.

“George has served the faculty in the CSU, public workers in our state, and the people of California well and we congratulate him,” said Taiz.

She said, “He labored during very tough economic times. It has been important given CalPERS size and influence not only on our standard of living but on public policy regarding workers’ retirement and health care everywhere.”

CFA has endorsed Theresa Taylor, a candidate with extensive financial experience, in the three-way race to replace Diehr on the board. Learn more about the 2014 CalPERS Election on the CFA web site.

Ballots will be mailed to CalPERS members August 29.
