Voters Limit Supervisors’ Pensions, Retain Elected Public Administrator

A countywide measure that would make the Orange County public administrator an appointed position failed, while one that would limit county supervisors’ pensions won easily.

No votes on Measure A, the public administrator question, bested yes votes 60.9 percent to 30.1 percent, according to the Orange County registrar of voters tally of absentee ballots.

Measure B, which requires that supervisors take their least expensive pension options, was approved 72 percent to 28 percent.
