Letter of the Day: Kerns and the rules

  • Supervisor Mike Kerns at a Board of Supervisors meeting.

<b>Kerns and the rules</b>

EDITOR: On the topic of pension spiking, former Sonoma County Supervisor Mike Kerns portrays himself as a helpless pawn in the system: "You play by the rules . . . if people find that objectionable, then maybe they need to change the rules" ("Employee perks pay off in retirement," Sunday). As a supervisor for 12 years, Kerns had ample opportunity to change those rules and curb abuse of the public pension system. Apparently he had other priorities.
