A couple random ideas

I found these written down on a scrap of paper in my room; I think they were things that people brought up at the Taxpayers Union meeting back in April. FWIW, if anyone's interested...

(1) Try to reverse Tom Ammiano's Proposition E, on the grounds that it was a fee or rate increase by a vote of the Board of Supervisors, not a vote by the people.

(2) Take a look at the Redevelopment Agency; Do we need one? New zones? Most current ones expire in 2009 after 30 years in place; Gavin Newsom has proposed 3 new areas; $100 million in bonds generated only $18.5 million in revenue back to the general fund.

Yes, those two items were also discussed at the Taxpayers' Union
meeting I attended. The first, Prop E, might be something LPSF could
undertake to reverse. The second, Redevelopment Agency, is a lot
more complex; I had a hard time at that meeting following all the
statistics, etc. that the group was trying to grapple with regarding
the Agency.
