PERA Board Reappoints Trustee
On March 24, 2023, the PERA Board reappointed the Honorable Rebecca R. Freyre to the Judicial Division seat. She was the sole candidate duly nominated and eligible to be elected to the seat, which means there will not be an election for the Judicial Division seat in the May Board election. The new term for Judge Freyre will begin on July 1, 2023, and end on June 30, 2027.
