Pension Critic Tony Hall Is a Pensioner
|Tony Hall says he'll make a living no matter what...|
Interestingly, the city's major proponent of blowing up the pension system and starting anew is, in fact, a pensioner. "That's me!" admits Hall.
In a form he recently submitted to the Department of Elections, Hall reveals that "nearly 100 percent of my current income is the retirement benefits I earned serving in [city] administrative positions. I have no other income."

In Hall's belief, neither the Lee-backed "consensus" plan or Adachi's rival pension measure will stave off a Vallejo-like future (though San Franciscans might come to enjoy having a theme park within city limits and a newfound rivalry with Benicia).
The problem isn't Hall's, he continues. It's the younger generation's burden.
"Shit, I'll make a living. I'll sing or something. I'm so sorry for the young kids. We've saddled them with a mountain of debt."
|If need be, Tony Hall can always get the band back together...|
