About five dozen retired city and school employees in Dublin are now collecting pensions.
The retirement compensation is part of a list posted by the San Jose Mercury News and other newspapers.
The CalPERS list was unveiled as the state Legislature last week approved a pension reform bill that is now on Gov. Jerry Brown's desk. Among other reforms, the legislation raises the retirement age for most new employees from 55 to 67 to receive full benefits. It also eliminates so-called "double dipping" and caps the pensions of highly paid retired workers.
At the top of list is retired superintendent John Sugiyama, who worked for 35 years in the district.
He earned $14,500 a month when he stepped down. He's now receiving almost $9,500 a month in pension, or about 114,000 a year.
Next is retired assistant superintendent Donna Uyemoto, who worked in the district for 34 years. She is receiving $9,000 a month after retiring while earning $12,300 a month.
Right behind is another retired assistant superintendent, Sandra Hare, who worked in the district for 36 years. She was earning $11,300 a month when she retired and is now receiving $8,800 a month in pension.
There are 11 retirees listed who take in less than $1,000 a month in pension. About a third receive less than $3,000 a month.
The city of Dublin has 34 retirees named on the list.
At the top is Lee Thompson, a retired public works director who worked for the city for 25 years. He was earning $11,300 a month when he stepped down. He now collects $7,600 a month in pension, about 90,000 a year.
Next is Maria Macias, a retired community services officer who worked for the city for 33 years. She was earning $6,700 a month and now collects $6,300 in pension a month.
Eleven of the retirees listed collect less than $1,000 a month in retirement pay.
The city's top administrator is supportive of the Legislature's action to reform the pension system.
“The city managers of Alameda and Contra Costa counties have been working together over the past few years on the issue of pension reform because long-term fiscal sustainability is our upmost concern," said Dublin City Manager Joni Pattillo. "We have consistently said that the most effective reform must be statewide and the governor’s pension reforms meet the spirit of these discussions.”
