Don’t name fire chief as mayor of Loomis

Re "Only one fix to the big mess in Loomis" (Editorials, Nov. 30): The Bee editorial was right in calling on Dave Wheeler to either resign from the Loomis Town Council or from his position as the local fire chief. The California Public Employees Retirement System says Wheeler continued to collect pension checks after being warned by the agency in 2010 of the apparent violation of its regulations. Worse yet, if the Town Council members name Wheeler, currently mayor pro tem, as the new mayor, Loomis will become a prime example of towns that wink at the very pension abuse bankrupting California cities.
