San Diego Mayor Bob Filner’s pension is creeping higher as he remains in office.
We examined the mayor’s potential pension payout during the campaign, and decided to take another look given the current sexual harassment scandal and calls for his resignation.
The mayor’s financial incentive to stay for a full four-year term is around $20,000 a year in city pension payouts.
What Does the Mayor Get Now?
Filner’s entitled to three pensions for his time as a professor at San Diego State University, his 20 years in Congress and his tenure as a city elected official.
