    From: Ron Dicks
    Date: December 26, 2016 at 9:11:01 AM PST
    Subject: Endorsement

    My name is Ron Dicks. I am a retired San Francisco Housing Inspector. I was employed by the city and county for 32 years. I also served as a union officer for IFPTE #21. In that capacity I had the pleasure to observe and interact with Herb Meiberger in conjunction with his duties on the Retirement Board. Mr. Meiberger has always been the consummate professional, as he has always been cognizant of his important role on the commission. He is a font of information and invaluable/irreplaceable source as to legislation and historical reference. Herb also stands as the only commissioner not employed by police or fire. This gives herb a perspective, that if removed would be disastrous for the many miscellaneous San Francisco employees. It is imperative that miscellaneous employees continue to have professional, competent representation on this very important board. This commission is too important to be without the representation and participation of miscellaneous employees.
    There are many issues that this board must address in a complex and ever changing environment. Commissioners must be able to communicate and incorporate disparate voices and groups in meeting member needs. A commission which exists without representation for the largest group (miscellaneous employees) is a recipe for disaster. We cannot allow this to happen! Please join me in supporting Herb Meiberger.

    Sheila Goldmacher notes her disgust with the campaign:

    POB will never get one cent from me for engaging in underhanded tactics in this election campaign including lies about who is more qualified. Shame on them. I have already voted for you and trust you implicitly to continue to work for the benefit or retired employees ALL OF US!

    I hereby authorize you, Herb Meiberger, to post this to your website.

    My endorsement for your election to the SFERS board follows:

    Hello.

    A few of you knew me but most of you don’t. I’m a retired firefighter with 30 years service who retired in 1994 with a considerable interest in my SFERS pension’s health. The current election for a seat on SFERS board is unfortunate and reflects dark insinuations and misinformation put out by the challenger’s campaign similar to what we’ve had to endure from both sides in the last presidential election. Because of the SFERS vote, I’ve gotten e-mails, glossy color pamphlets through postal mail and even a phone call at home from someone who didn’t have my phone number until Joe Driscoll looked it up in retirement board records and gave it to him asking him to call me. Let me simplify this whole issue for you. It’s not about people. Rather, it’s about votes.

    Specifically, this SFERS election is all about HEDGE FUNDS and whether or not the Chief Investment Manager (Bill Coaker) will be permitted to invest even more of our pension money in them by obtaining a sufficient number of affirmative votes from board members that WE (both active and retired) ELECT to represent us and PROTECT our pensions. THAT’S IT. Currently, there are three members of the board (Stansbury, Driscoll, and Paskin-Jordan) who are pushing to unseat Herb Meiberger, a long time opponent of hedge funds. If they succeed by getting another candidate to take Meiberger’s seat at the table (they’ve selected retired cop Al Casciato to run against him), there will be enough “yes” votes on the board to put more of our money into those funds. So far, Herb Meiberger is the ONLY one who has stood up for us and consistently voted NO on our behalf.

    Casciato was chosen because he will vote yes. That’s what this election is all about! Period!

    Warren Buffet (a gentleman with a somewhat extensive and favorable reputation for investing) agreed with Herb Meiberger that SFERS should ABSOLUTELY NOT invest in hedge funds (see Herb’s website for the personal note from Buffet). But Casciato’s “yes” vote (along with the team of Stansbury, Driscoll, and Paskin-Jordan) would give CIO Coaker permission to do just that! Don’t give these folks permission to gamble with our money.

    The purpose of this letter is to help you EDUCATE YOURSELF before you decide on the issue and, if you do, I have no doubt you will GIVE HERB MEIBERGER YOUR WELL EARNED VOTE!

    Sincerely,
    Lieutenant Ted Gold, SF Fire Department (Retired)

    Herb

    THE SFERS (OUR RETIREMENT SYSTEM) IS THE VERY LAST HOPE THAT RETIREES HAVE TO MAINTAIN A RESPONSIBLE SYSTEM WHERE RETIREES CAN COUNT ON A VIABLE RETIREMENT!! THE SPEND, SPEND, SPEND
    GANG IS UNDERMINING THE FINANCIAL FUTURE OF OUR RETIREMENT PLANS. WE CANNOT AFFORD TO LET OUR RETIREMENT SYSTEM GO ASUNDER!!!! GAMBLING WITH RETIREMENT FUNDS IS A VERY FAST WAY TO
    DESTROY ANY SEMBLANCE OF RELIABILITY!! OH YES, IT’S JUST GREAT FOR SOME PEOPLE TO OFFER OUR RETIREMENT FUNDS TO THE GAMBLERS!!! BUT, WE ALL KNOW WHERE THAT LEADS – IT LEADS TO AN UNRELIABLE AND DEFUNCT RETIREMENT SYSTEM!! JUST LOOK AROUND AT THE PATHETIC SITUATION THAT OTHER CITIES AND ENTITIES ARE DEALING WITH!!! NO FUTURE!! ALL OF IT CAUSED BY “GAMBLING” ON INVESTMENTS THAT
    ALLEGEDLY PROVIDE “HIGH RETURNS!” RETIREMENT FUNDS ARE NOT “ GAMBLING” FUNDS!!!! IF ONE WANTS TO GAMBLE, THEN GO TO RENO OR VEGAS – JUST LOOK AROUND AT ALL THE “BROKERS!!! IT IS SAD!!

    YES, ANY GROUP THAT HANDLES MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IS VULNERABLE TO THOSE SEEKING A “ FAST BUCK!” BUT, LET’S NOT GAMBLE WITH OUR WONDERFUL, SOLID RETIREMENT FUNDS!!!!!

    WITH BEST REGARDS,

    Jack Sherratt, Retired, 32-year Firefighter, Battalion Chief, SF Fire Department*
