San Diego Explained: An Easier Out for Rogue City Officials

In this week’s San Diego Explained, NBC7 San Diego’s Monica Dean and Voice of San Diego’s Ashly McGlone detail the changes Measure E is proposing.

New city rules drafted in the wake of former Mayor Bob Filner’s sexual harassment scandal will go before voters this November.

If approved, Measure E would make it easier to remove a city official who’s done wrong.

A yes vote on the ballot measure would offer new avenues to remove elected city officials, and boost the requirements for city attorney candidates. A no vote would keep the status quo, which requires death, resignation, loss of voter eligibility or a recall to force an official out before the end of his or her term.
