Adachi recruits San Jose mayor in support of Prop. B

San Francisco’s Public Defender Jeff Adachi is getting no love from many of his colleagues at City Hall when it comes to supporting Proposition B, Adachi’s controversial pension reform measure on the Nov. 2 ballot.

So Adachi turned his sights down south, recruiting San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed who traveled to San Francisco on Thursday morning where he stood on the steps of City Hall to announce his public support of Proposition B.

San Jose has two similar measures on its November ballot, both of which Reed is supporting. “You are probably why a guy from San Jose is standing on the steps of the City Hall in San Francisco and the reason is the people of San Francisco and the people of San Jose have a lot of things in common,” Reed said. “Unfortunately, one of those things we have in common is a disease, a disease of runaway retirement costs.”

He encouraged the votes of San Francisco and of San Jose to “stand up and say ‘this is too much!’”

Of course, that’s easy for Reed to say, considering he’s not seeking election this November.
