2009 promises to be a quiet year for San Francisco elections, right? Well, don’t be too sure about that. As an Examiner article points out, the special election to be held this spring allows for more ballot measures to be brought before the public. A lineup of potential measures include increasing taxes by avoiding the requirement to only raise taxes when supervisors are being elected, and also the possibility of using all of the city’s rainy day fund to meet current budget needs. These will be important measures if they do come before the voters, so San Franciscans should continue to be alert and follow the election news even though many of us thought the Nov. 08 election was going to take care of everything for several years. As usual the League will continue to keep up with forthcoming elections and will provide news in print and on the website to help voters make the decisions that affect our city.
