The State Worker caught up with San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed on Wednesday as he made the rounds in Sacramento to talk about his plan to give governments the power to reduce their pension debts.

Here are highlights of an interview in the Capitol’s basement, during which Reed discussed with whom he met, his plan to keep pressing for a pension ballot measure in 2016, and his thoughts on the fight over pension obligations in the City of Stockton’s bankruptcy case.
