San Francisco Supervisor [[Bevan Dufty]] is behind an effort to place a measure on the ballot that would reverse the city's current policy on Candlestick Park naming rights. Dufty's proposal would allow San Francisco to sell naming rights to the park once the lease on the park held by the San Francisco 49ers expires. In 2004, voters rejected Proposition H, which also sought to reverse the city's policy on how to name the park.
