SF Examiner: Wiener Wants to Limit Voice of Voters

Proposal would let supes repeal San Francisco ballot measures

The Board of Supervisors could change or even repeal voter-approved ordinances, years after their initial passage, under a charter amendment Supervisor Scott Wiener introduced Tuesday for the November ballot.

Wiener said he is proposing the measure in response to criticism about the number of ballot measures, such as, “Why can’t the Board of Supervisors do its job and pass legislation without asking us to pass it for you?”

If approved, he said it would reduce the number of ballot measures and make “government more flexible.”
