Two City of San Ramon Charter Amendments, Measure P and Q were on the November 4, 2008 ballot for voters in the City of San Ramon in Contra Costa County, California, where they were defeated.

Measure P would have changed the way that compensation for San Ramon's mayor is determined. When Measure P went on the ballot, the mayor's salary was set at $100/month more than what the members of the city council earns. If Measure P had been approved, the members of the city council would have been able to determine without constraints what the mayor earns.

Measure Q would have allowed mayors to serve a total of nine years, depending on the dates of general municipal elections and other considerations.

Measure P asked voters the question, "Shall so much of Article III of the City of San Ramon Charter which currently reads as "Compensation for the elected Mayor of San Ramon shall be one hundred dollars per month more than a City Councilmember" be amended to read "Compensation for the elected Mayor of San Ramon shall be determined by resolution of the City Council."

Measure Q asked voters the question, "Shall the following be added to Article III of the City of San Ramon Charter: Notwithstanding any of the above, if the general municipal election date is changed to the date of the statewide general election, the unexpired term of an incumbent Mayor shall be extended by one year or reduced by one year. If the term is extended, that individual may serve a total of nine years as Mayor."
