A battle over mayoral power?

A new reform effort aimed at limiting outside employment by SF supervisors made the front page of the Chron Dec. 9, but a much-more-significant change in board rules is also under discussion and could wind up on the ballot soon.

The Harvey Milk club is polling on a question that’s bothered me for decades: Why should the mayor have the ability to fill vacancies on the Board of Supervisors?

  1. These are excellent points. Way too much power. Appointees are beholden to the Mayor and their voting patterns can change the future of the City.
