San Diego Worker Fringe Benefit Report - Response From Councilman DeMaio

Posted: Updated:

"Today's article in the Union Tribune leaves the impression that we intentionally inflated a number. Nothing could be further from the truth.

We used a comparison of city data on the cost of its fringe benefits to a national database. Unfortunately, that database used a different calculation methodology so the comparison was not apples to apples. To provide the best data to the public, we tasked a national government benefits expert to suggest better comparisons.

Even when we change the comparison, the conclusion is still the same: the cost of city fringe benefits is unsustainably high."
