CalPERS announces board election results

Theresa Taylor has won election to CalPERS Board of Administration and incumbent Priya Mathur has won re-election to the panel, according to an uncertified vote count by the retirement system.

Taylor, a Franchise Tax Board investigator who was supported by SEIU Local 1000, won the state-agency seat with 55 percent of votes cast. Mathur, a Bay Area Rapid Transit financial analyst first elected to the board in 2003, kept her public-agency seat with 56 percent of the vote.

Taylor and Mathur will serve 4-year terms that begin on January 16. The board oversees a $300 billion public-employee retirement system and health programs administered for 1.6 million current and retired government employees and their dependents.
