That list doubled to eight in 2012.
Last year, Encinitas' tony $100,000 club hit 13, with two more scratching at the door collecting more than $99,000. Transparent California:
|Name||Pension||Years ofService||Year ofRetirement|
|Donald G Heiser||$159,274.80||33.79||2006|
|Joseph W Bunn||$154,836.00||31.02||2010|
|Jeffrey S Henry||$151,155.24||33||2013|
|Talmadge F Tufts||$127,270.56||33.35||2005|
|Darlene R Hill||$111,573.96||36.26||2009|
|Robert M Romero||$109,443.00||35.1||2009|
|David L Moore||$104,875.68||31.73||2007|
|Darrin R Ward||$102,011.76||21.26||2014|
|John C Gonzales||$101,330.52||29.9||2014|
|Thomas E Curriden||$100,975.44||31.59||2013|
Former fire chief and current councilman Mark Muir is the undisputed champion, pulling in $181,936. Talmadge Tufts and Donald Heiser have already collected more than a million dollars each, and with Encinitas' young retirement age, some of these folks will be collecting this every year for decades.
Meanwhile, CalPERS continues to fail miserably in its investments, meaning they'll be taking more and more money from Encinitas each and every year to keep these fatcats rolling in the green. Encinitas already spends more on employee pensions than on maintaining its underfunded roads.
