It's been awfully quiet from the APOA and the progress of the negotiations over Atherton's dominating budget item, police costs. The police union contract is up for renewal this year, and if I'm not mistaken, right about NOW.
The APOA union was very loud and belligerent last election season about what they wanted and demanded. They're very quiet now. I assume this is because Lewis and Wiest told them to keep a low profile, they're going to get what they want, so don't attract attention to the situation.
But this article CHANGES EVERYTHING, even for the troika of Lewis, Wiest and Carlson.
CALPERS will be billing Atherton more than 50% higher for police union pensions over the next six years.
Where will the money come from?
If Atherton residents stay asleep, right from their wallets, since Lewis and Wiest will make sure cops get RAISES instead of the MASSIVE REDUCTIONS that are necessary to balance the budget.
