Attorney General Richard Blumenthal (there he is on election night 2007…) says former Mayor Eddie A. Perez is eligible for a city pension and that he intends to try to revoke it.
In a letter to Chief State’s Attorney Kevin Kane, Blumenthal said that Perez’s conviction “reflects significant violations of public trust and misuse of office.”
Blumenthal says Perez, 53, is eligible for a roughly $25,000 pension when he’s 55, and a roughly $31,000 pension when he turns 60. (To clarify, I’m told were he to opt for the pension at 55, he would get the $25,000 annual pension for life. It would not bump up.)
Here’s the release: Blumenthal On Perez Pension.
