Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has picked three commissioners to oversee the city's employee pension funds, replacing appointees who resigned abruptly last month -- two of them in the wake of an inquiry by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Villaraigosa named attorney Dean Hansell to replace Sean Harrigan, who had been serving as president of the Fire and Police Pensions. The mayor selected USC professor Adlai Wertman to replace Elliott Broidy, another board member at the public safety pension fund.

Retired investment executive Roberta Conroy was offered the seat vacated by Kelly Candaele on the Los Angeles City Employees' Retirement System board.

All three nominees must be confirmed by the City Council.
