The supporters of Prop. D have plenty of plans to improve the city’s sorry financial situation: the details are in the ballot measure itself and in non-binding promises the City Council made the other day. And what do the opponents of Prop. D have?
Well, one says he’s got a plan to offer a plan after the election. Another has a plan, but it’s lacking important details.
Why does it matter who’s spent more time ironing out everything? For one thing, the lack of comprehensive competing proposals to fix things convinced a powerful business group to finally swing its support to the measure.
Which way are you going to vote on Prop. D? Do you have strong feelings about it?
