November 2011 Voter Guide

Analysis and recommendations for the November 2011 ballot

Voter Guide
Contact: Corey Marshall, Good Government Policy Director
Eight city measures appear on the San Francisco ballot on November 8, 2011. As we do every election, SPUR thoroughly analyzed each one. Our Ballot Analysis Committee heard arguments from both sides of the issues, debated the measures’ merits and provided recommendations to our Board of Directors. The board then voted, with a 60 percent vote required for SPUR to make a recommendation.

For each of these eight measures we asked: Is it necessary and appropriate to be on the ballot? Is it practical, and if enacted, will it achieve the result it proposes? And most importantly: Is it a worthy goal, one that will make San Francisco a better place to work and live?
