The George Bush Sewage Plant Initiative was on the November 4, 2008 citywide San Francisco ballot as Proposition R. Proposition R was defeated with 30.13% of the vote.

More than 11,000 petition signatures were submitted to qualify the measure for the fall ballot.[1],[2]

If it passes, it will re-name the city's Oceanside Treatment Plant as the George W. Bush Sewage Plant. The group supporting the initiative is called the Presidential Memorial Commission of San Francisco.

John Rinaldi, a co-sponsor of the petition who ran unsuccessfully for San Francisco mayor in 2007 using his nickname, "Chicken John", said the initiative would turn "every toilet in San Francisco into basically a shrine for George W. Bush and all his great achievements in his eight years as our commander in chief."


Defeated. [3]
