Proposition E is the most dangerous thing on the San Francisco ballot. If it passes, the rest of what's on the ballot--and however you vote on those other items--won't matter: Prop E allows the Mayor or the Board of Supervisors to amend and repeal voter-approved laws. Rent Control and dedicated funding for the library system, for instance, could be on the chopping block if Prop E passes.
Prop E's twin sister Proposition F is equally anti-democratic, allowing the Board or the notoriously weak Ethics Commission to loosen or kill requirements for disclosures by campaign consultants. Prop F means more stealth lobbying, more secret donations, more backroom deals.
