The State Worker: Incumbents win re-election to CalPERS board

J.J. Jelincic and Michael Bilbrey have again won terms on the board of California's largest government retirement system, according to an uncertified tally of votes by CalPERS.

Roughly 57 percent of the ballots cast supported Jelincic and handed defeat to three challengers.

Billbrey, who joined the board in 2012 after winning a special election to fill a vacant spot on the 13-member Board of Administration, beat one opponent with about 66 percent of the vote.

The results aren't official until certified by the Secretary of State's office. The new terms for both men begin Jan. 16, 2014.

CalPERS sent out 1.2 million ballots to CalPERS members for the month-long election that ended Sept. 27. About 140,000 members participated.

The constitutionally-independent CalPERS Board of Administration oversees retirement funds covering 1.6 million state and local government employees, retirees and their beneficiaries.
