Another blip has showed up on the San Bernardino County political radar.

Thursday’s agenda for the San Bernardino County Employees Association (SBCERA) contains an interesting little tidbit.

The son of a former trustee is being appointed to the panel hearing disputed disability retirement applications.

Michael Reiter, son of former retirement board trustee Marvin Reiter, is one of five hearing officers to be appointed under agenda item 14b.

Last year, the elder Reiter, who is also District Attorney Michael Ramos’ campaign treasurer, was not reappointed to the retirement board by county supervisors.
