Michael Bilbrey has won a seat on the CalPERS Board of Administration by nearly 40,000 votes, according to preliminary results released late today by the pension system.
Bilbrey faced Richard Ross in a special runoff election to fill a vacancy on the 13-member board. The Secretary of State's Office must still certify the results.
A CalPERS press release said Bilbrey received 117,034 votes, 60 percent, and Ross received 78,718 votes, 40 percent.
Bilbrey takes over the at-large seat that Kurato Shimada resigned from last August. His term expires Jan. 15, 2014.
