The results are in: Theresa Taylor has won a spot as the newest member of the CalPERS Board of Administration, and incumbent Priya Mathur has been re-elected, as well. From the Sacramento Bee:

Theresa Taylor has won election to CalPERS Board of Administration and incumbent Priya Mathur has won re-election to the panel, according to an uncertified vote count by the retirement system.

Taylor, a Franchise Tax Board investigator who was supported by SEIU Local 1000, won the state-agency seat with 55 percent of votes cast. Mathur, a Bay Area Rapid Transit financial analyst first elected to the board in 2003, kept her public-agency seat with 56 percent of the vote.

Taylor and Mathur will serve 4-year terms that begin on January 16. The board oversees a $300 billion public-employee retirement system and health programs administered for 1.6 million current and retired government employees and their dependents.

Priya Mathur is a long-time veteran of the board who has run into trouble over the years as she has consistently failed to file conflict of interest documents and other financial statement on time. She turned in those documents late in 2002, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2013.
