7:39 am
7:40 am
7:41 am
and the police officer's unn says the morning after elect y could be the sta voting is getting underway in the san jose mayoral race, and the police officers' union says the morning after election day could be the start of another mass exodus of police officers. >> over the past few years bash 400 officers have been laid off, gone to other diameter, or retired. now there are allegations of scare tactics coming from the police department if sam lacardo is elected mayor. >> we want to get a perspective from the other candidate in the race, dave cortez. doubt that if your opponent in this race is elected we're going to have 200 or more recovers leave the department? >> we certainly don't want that to happen. 400 cops have left already. 70 per year for the last four or five years. and we do hear from rank and file police officers on the street that they're having those kind of thoughts. i would encourage
7:42 am
them to stay. >> some of the reasons are the pension benefits. >> that's a 2012 issue, not a 2014 issue. those changes were made, they're in the city charter, and nothing going to happen with pensions in terms of changing anything. but people are talking about the fact that these cops need more in s to compete with the other cities in the bay area. that's where they're all going. they're coming up to san francisco, going to oakland, redwood city, but they're not staying in san jose. >> what do you do to propose to change that? >> well, it has to be negotiated, but they haven't been at the bargaining table for over a year and a half. we need to get them back to the table. trust has been destroyed. it's a demoralized department. you hear that everywhere. and i think that's what's leading to some of these rumors that more
7:43 am
people might quit. you can only pay them what's sustainable for the city. but we can work with wages to some extent. >> what would be the key difference between you and your opponent on this issue for a voter? >> i think from a voter standpoint, there's 140 positions that are funded in the city budget right now. and i'm focused on trying to get that money to new officer, to get from us an all-time low of 878 recovers that are available right now back over 1,000. my opponent is saying the city is broke and it can't do anything more. >> where would you get the money? >> there's million was dollars in the mayor's budget, a $10 million reserve, 140 positions that are funded, and a $17 million surplus. >> surpluses and reserves are good for one-time spending, but you're talking about sustained spending. and that's what got san jose into trouble.
7:44 am
so are you going to talk about a tax increase or something to keep it go something >> the city council recently foregoed the opportunity of a tax increase. and i'll tell you what is working. the economy is clicking. the mayor did a good conservative job ever projecting tax revenue over the next five years at 3% a year, but it's coming in at 6.5 or 7% a year. and if that keeps happening, that is your surplus. >> what if it doesn't? >> you have to sit down with people and make them understand that. it can't be my way or the highway. it's got to be a negotiation, a collaborative process. i've done that my entire 22 gleers politics. bring people together, get them to understand that we're trying to preserve their job, not get rid of their jobs, and work these things out. >> okay. you have the backing of the police and the fire unions. in return for that backing, did you make them any promises? >> no, absolutely not. police
7:45 am
and fire unions know that i'm ray tough but fair negotiator from my past background. i voted against the 90% pension in 2005. i was the only council member that did that. it's amazing that they'll still endorse me in this race given that, but they know i'm fair. and that's what counts. this is on the police department, the recent revelations that recovers were moonlighting with the 49ers. do you believe that should be happening? >> yeah, no, absolutely. and this whole issue of domestic violence needs to be taken a lot more seriously. it's not a game. and games no matter how big even at the nfl level can't override the fact that we absolutely can't have conflicts of interest with police officers and vfrpgzs involving domestic violence -- investigations involving domestic violence. there was a mistake by the police chief, by the 49ers and their contractor, and the cop that was involved should have known better. >> there was a whole lot of other cops working for the 49ers. are they working for other corporations as well? how big is the moonlighting issue in
7:46 am
san jose police? >> well, there's always been a big reserve force. and it's an opportunity for these rofrps that ever their -- officers that have had their wages cut severely. but there still has to be compromise checks. we can't compromise safety. >> you'd be opposed to moonlighting for corporate -- >> i'm not opposed to them moonlighting, but all the conflict checks need to be in place. and it's not up to the 49ers to say that's a contract with someone else that we hire. they've got to make sure that their contracts are appropriate and are hiring the appropriate people. >> the san jose a's, or the oakland a's, or the idea of a stadium in san jose. if you were a mayor, would you continue to pursue that? >> yeah, i think sometimesing this manage that's also -- that's something that's become a train wreck since i left the council. and i'm eager to come back, a new commissioner and
7:47 am
mayor, and to sit down with mlb to see where we might have things in common. >> three to five years ahead, what would be the difference between you being there and your opponent? >> i think you'll see a dedicated workforce in the city of san jose. >> if they listen to you guys, and both seem to be agreeing on just about everything, that's the difference? >> i think the difference is after 22 years of experience in balancing budgets without chasing people away, without losing police officers, without demoralizing people at the city, you'll see a city that's working together once again with me. and i think that's the difference. my opponent has been presiding over all of this for the last several years. you can seat culture that's been created with my opponent. and look back just a few years and seat different culture that was there when i was there. cooperation and collaboration. >> you're replacing chuck reed
7:48 am
as mayor of san jose. how would you characterize his years in office? >> oh, that's a quick question. i'd give him a 7 or 8. but i think there's going to be a footnote next to his legacy in terms of this public safety issue. i'm sure he wanted to leave office without having skyrocketing crime rates and police officers abandoning the system: he was a great mayor when it came to fiscal reform. i support those reforms but he went about them in a very, very difficult way. and it's forced a lot of people out. >> okay, we'll have the second half of the debate coming up. let's look at our sunday morning forecast for today. and first things first, he is a beautiful, live shot of our dublin cam right now where it is clear this morning. clear in fact in much of the bay area. here's what you can expect when you're heading out the door today, more mild inland. but it will be sunny everywhere and warm to hot. there is a red

flag warning. we have some dry, gusty winds today. if you're thinking of firing up the barbecue, be a little careful this morning. around the bay, 89 in santa clara. palo alto will sit at 90. the same for los altos. vallejo at 90. and in san francisco, a little warmer than yesterday. 84 degrees. san rafael, 91. novato 92 . today looking very nice. warmer than yesterday. tomorrow is columbus day, that's going to be nice as well. a chance of showers moving in tuesday night into wednesday. it's going to clear off into the workweek. then another chance for showers on friday. this looks like even the sun is getting into the halloween spirit! active regions of the solar surface
7:50 am
combine to form what looked like a jack-o-lantern face! nasa set up the colorized images to form this. >> oh, i see it. ,,,,,,
7:51 am
insurance companies are spending millions of dollars trying to mislead you about the effects of proposition 46. well here's the truth: 46 will save lives. it will save money too. i'm bob pack, and i'm fighting for prop 46 because i lost my two children to preventable medical errors and i don't want anyone else to lose theirs. the three provisions in 46 will reduce medical errors and protect patients. save money and save lives. yes on 46. first impressions are important. you've got to make every second count. banking designed for the way you live your life. so you can welcome your family home... for the first time. chase. so you can.

8:11 am
g after election day with voting getting underway in the san jose mayoral race, the police officers' union says the morning after the election day could be the start of another mass exodus of police officers. >> with 400 recovers have been laid off, gone to other departments or retired. now there are allegations of scare tactics coming from the san jose police department if sam liccardo is elected mayor. >> and joining us this morning sam liccardo. they're talking about 200 possible police officers exiting if you are elected. it is over pay, pension and benefits. >> i think our voters want a mayor's office sliegz rather than scare tactics. there were a lot of police union bosses who would like to pick the next mayor. but the voters are going to do it. >> do you think these police officers are going to leave? >> no. and the reason why is because we're restoring pay today. i came to an agreement with the council and the rest of
8:12 am
the union a year ago to restore pay 11%. what we're seeing is new candidates are gradual r graduating from the academy, they're staying on board like a year ago. so we're going to continue to restore pay, keep recovers on board, and make san jose safer. >> in the last two years, we have seen a spike in crime, and a reduction in police officers. this was brought on by the reform in part by you, the mayor, and the voters of san jose to scale back on the pension and benefits. you're not going to fundamentally change that? >> you're not correct about the crime statistics. if you go to the fbi website, you'll see the real data. it says that we're the safest, lowest rate of violent crime of any major city in america in 2012 that. crime rate dropped 10% in 2013. >> what about car thefts and the others? >> another 9% among all serious
8:13 am
felonies including prop 8 crime in the first six months of 2014. in mid-2014, we had a lower rate of violent and property crime than we had the year i came into office in 2007. what has been created by the campaign and by the public safety units is an extraordinary hysteria about crime. it has been compl contradicted by the data and facts. >> so there hasn't been an increase in crime? >> we saw an increase in crime up to 2012, which is wha cities in the state saw. virtually every major city including san francisco and many neighboring cities like santa clara and sunnyvale saw big spikes in property crime. since 2012, we've seen serious felonies drop 19%. and that's significance. and we're doing it even with a smaller police
8:14 am
force. we've got a police chief who's focused on patrol, and a community focused on keeping each other safe. >> if everything is going fine, why is there a need to change? >> i believe that we need to move forward with fiscal reforms. we can't go back. certainly the head of the police union who is going to renier a few month, and make many other police officers who retired over the last five year, he will have a 6-figure pension that will grow to $200,000 a year by the time he's in his 70s. they like everyone to believe they need that pension for everyone to be safer. i know from my experience of being a council member during the worst of the great recession, we didn't have enough money to pay recovers to work. and that's because we're paying officers so much to retire. we lost 80% of the depletion of the san jose police force that occurred before pension reform ever passed. >> at the same time you're talking about paying pay for police -- raising pay for police? >> yes. the difference between
8:15 am
pay and pensions, with pay tax payers know exactly what they're paying. >> didn't those raises affect pensions? >> they do unless you can reduce the pension formula to reduce the long-term unfunded cost. the idea is reducing the pension formula so you don't have what we currently have, a $3 billion unfunded debt. because of pension formulas that never made sense. the math never worked. we can restore pay as long as we are reducing those extraordinary pensions. >> speaking of pay, how do you feel about san jose police officers moonlighting for private security firms, working for people like the 49er? >> it's long been the case that san jose police have been able to work for school districts, for malls, and for the 49ers. the fact that clearly in this case you've got an officer who by his involvement in some way or another, complicated an investigation, i think it's a good indication that the chief made the right decision. let's pull back and just focus on
8:16 am
making sure our officers are doing the best they can. >> i asked your opponent this, on a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your predecessor? >> i think chuck reed has led this city through the toughest of times. i think he had a very difficult hand that he was dealt. i think he did an excellent job in managing the fiscal challenges of this city when a lot of folks were talking about bankruptcy openly. and for that, i think he gets a 9. the mayor and i don't agree on every issue. but i'm proud to be supported by chuck reed and every single mayor who has led this city and weighed in on this city. they all support me because they understand the importance of fiscal reform to ensure we can pay for the police officers we need. >> okay! thank you for joining us this morning. i imagine you have some other appearances to make pretty soon. >> thanks a lot. let's look at our sunday forecast. here is a live shot of san jose this morning.
8:17 am
