San Francisco County Transportation Authority Board, Proposition P (November 2008)
If Proposition P had been approved, it would have changed the size and composition of the Transportation Authority Board. The new membership of the board would have consisted of:
- The Mayor
- The President of the Board of Supervisors
- The Treasurer
- One elected City official selected by the Mayor
- One elected City official selected by the President of the Board of Supervisors
- These final, certified, results are from the San Francisco elections office.
The question on the ballot:
|Proposition P: "Shall the City change the size and composition of the Transportation Authority Board and encourage the Authority to use City agencies and departments to perform staff functions, to obtain expert financial review before adopting Authority budgets, and to adopt the same ethics and public records laws that apply to City agencies?"|
Path to the ballot
Then-mayor Gavin Newsom requested that Proposition P appear on the ballot as a referred ordinance. San Francisco's election laws allow the mayor of the city to unilaterally place referred ordinances on the ballot.
