Maintaining a Balanced Budget Supervisor Andersen continues to demonstrate fiscal responsibility. Contra Costa maintains a structurally balanced budget and a AAA bond rating.

Rejecting an Exorbitant Raise In 2014 she rejected a 33% pay raise approved by the rest of the Board of Supervisors. After public outrage over the exorbitant raise, it was rescinded and a Citizen’s Committee formed to make salary adjustment recommendations. A 7% raise, over a three year period was ultimately agreed upon.

Responsible Pensions As a Board Member of the Contra Costa County Employee’s Retirement Association (CCCERA) she has made decisions to ensure that CCCERA is appropriately funded and pension abuses are stopped. When she joined the Board of Supervisors in 2012 CCCERA was only 68% funded. Today it is 89% funded.
