CalPERS Board of Administration hopefuls will square off tonight at 6 p.m. to debate issues, answer questions and make their individual cases for election to the fund's guiding body.
The "CalPERS Candidates' Forum" will convene in the CalPERS Auditorium in Lincoln Plaza North, 400 P Street in Sacramento. It will be moderated by the League of Women Voters of Sacramento County and sponsored by PERSWatch.
All eight candidates have confirmed that they'll attend, CalPERS has said.
The fund mailed out ballots on April 21. Members have until May 19 to vote and return them. The count will commence May 23. If no one receives a majority of the votes, the fund will conduct a runoff election between the top two candidates.
