Elections getting closer

As August begins is time to think about the end of summer and the beginning of the fall election season. While most of us were enjoying vacations, the Dept. of Elections has been busy preparing for the November 2007 election. A number of ballot measures have already been accepted for the ballot. Voters will be asked to make decisions on topics as varied as a Parking Initiative, Limited Hold-Over Service on Boards and Commissions, Public Hearing on Initiatives, Mayor to Appear at Board, Renewal of the Library Preservation Fund, and Retirement Benefits for Airport Police Officers. Further information is given on the website of the Department of Elections, so people can start doing their homework now to figure out which measures deserve support. League members who are interested in doing more intensive research to prepare materials for prospective voters, can contact the League office at lwvsf@lwvsf.org to volunteer their services. Voters deserve all the information we can provide as they wrestle with some of these issues.
