Candidates in a multi-seat race require a 50% or higher vote to be endorsed. Ballot propositions require at least 60%.

California Proposition
50 – YES Limits on Legislators’ Terms in office. Initiative Constitutional Amendment. Allows State legislators to suspend colleagues without pay; includes safeguards to prevent abuse.

Regional Proposition
AA – YES Clean and Healthy Bay Parcel Tax. Region-wide parcel tax of just $12 to restore wetlands around the Bay: our best defense against rising sea levels.

San Francisco Propositions
A – YES  Public Health and Safety Bond. For specific upgrade to SF General, neighborhood health centers & fire stations, the City ambulance facility, and homeless shelters & services. Does not raise taxes, since a prior bond has been paid off.
B – NO  Park, Recreation and Open Space Fund. Charter Amendment. A set-aside that only requires a majority vote to pass, and has zero indication of how the poorly-managed, privatization-happy Rec & Park Dept will spend the money.
C – YES  Affordable Housing Requirements. Charter Amendment. Requires larger private developments to provide 25% affordable housing onsite, or 33% off-site.
D – YES  Office of Citizen Complaints Investigations. Initiative Ordinance. Any shooting by police resulting in injury or death will be investigated, whether a complaint is filed or not.
E – YES  Paid Sick Leave. Initiative Ordinance. Brings the City ordinance in line with state law.
