Compromise Re-Reform Measure Introduced

Today’s Chronicle discusses a compromise that is supported by Mayor Newsom and union leaders. Also the Examiner discusses it. As we understand it this is based on the Peskin measure that we support, with some changes, notably one fewer Supervisorial vote required to reject the budget, and many fewer employees (2.75% instead of 10%, but up from the current 1.5) that can actually be hired and fired at will by the director. Additional funding for Muni is retained. We’ll have an analysis when we can see the text.
