Turnout for the September HANC meeting was good. The meeting started with Tim Redmond (48hills.org), discussing Propositions G, Q, R, D, H, M, & L. In summary, vote NO on G, Q, & R, they were placed on the ballot by Weiner and Farrel, designed to be policy pushing wedge issues that are thin on solutions and thick on politics.
Tim continued with why you should vote YES on Propositions D, H, M, & L. Prop D will separate unilateral power from the Executive Branch and prevent the Mayor from appointing replacement Supervisors if one should leave. Prop H would create the new position of Public Advocate; this position exists in many other cities. Prop M would create a commission to oversee Housing, and Workforce and Economic Development. Prop L would create split appointment of the MTA board between the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors. As a group all of these propositions take power back from the Mayor.
