A couple of housekeeping notes for The State Worker users:
* We'll be posting reminders every so often for the next few weeks that you can view a 28-minute video of last week's CalPERS candidates forum until the Oct. 2 ballot deadline. We'll try to keep the reference as unobtrusive as possible, but we think it's valuable to see what J.J. Jelincic, Inderjit Singh Kallirai and Muriel Strand said about the fund and its role in providing California public employee benefits.
Candidates Cathy Hackett, Kurato Shimada, Dan T. Villella and Dennis Yates did not participate.

* Several The State Worker users noted that we failed to mention in this Tuesday post that CASE, the state legal professionals union, has submitted a grievance on behalf of Bargaining Unit 2 members over the Legislature's elimination of Lincoln's Birthday and Columbus Day from the paid state holiday calendar. We added that amplification to Tuesday's post. And if you want to read more about the grievance, click here.
