Barnett Declines Comment on Pension Plans


We caught up with Managing Director Camille Barnett this morning to ask whether she plans to buy in to the city pension program.

Daily News columnist Stu Bykofsky today took a whack at the program, which will allow Barnett -- who plans to leave the government in June after a little over two years in service -- to pay $120,451 into the fund in order to get a $49,880 annual pension. (The Inquirer first reported those terms last week.) Barnett isn't vested in the pension, but can credit previous years of public service to legally get the perk.

But will Barnett buy in? She declined to take our questions. "I don't have any comment about that," Barnett said.
