Paper: Stockton City Council Received Illegal Cash from City While Cutting Public Safety

The Stockton Record reports that City of Stockton mayors and city council members have been receiving illegal payouts for years in violation of the city charter.  The paper reports that although the city charter prohibits retirement and death benefits for elected councilmembers, at least 16 current and former mayors and councilmembers had payments made to their CalPERS accounts by the City.
