At its March 12, 2014 regular meeting, the San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee will consider ballot measures and judicial candidates for the party's endorsement in the upcoming June Municipal Election.
Two local ballot measures will be considered for possible endorsements:
- Proposition A, the Earthquake Retrofit Bond, which the S.F. Ballot Simplification Committee summarizes as “a general obligation bond measure that would authorize the City to sell up to $400 million in bonds to improve specific public safety and emergency response facilities”; and
- Proposition B, Voter Approval for Waterfront Height Increases, which the S.F. Ballot Simplification Committee says “would prevent the City from allowing any development on Port property that exceeds the height limits in effect as of January 1, 2014, unless the City’s voters have first approved an increase in the height limit for that development…Any ballot question to increase height limits on Port property must specify both existing and proposed height limits.”
The San Francisco Democratic Party has also invited candidates for the sole contested race for Judge of the San Francisco Superior Court, Office Number 20.
As always, the public is invited to attend and share their thoughts with committee members about ballot measures and judicial candidates. The time and location details for the meeting are:

Message from the S.F. Democratic Party Chair
San Francisco's Democratic Party can look back on an enormously successful year in 2013: we registered a record number of voters in an off-year election; we kicked off the Sue Bierman Memorial Internship Program; we boasted a 100 percent win-rate for our endorsed candidates and ballot measures; and we made our activities count on a state-wide level. But with state elections coming up, and mid-term elections in which California will play a key role in Democratic hopes to regain control of the U.S. House, 2014 will be critically important. I hope we can count on you to join us in making a difference for the Democratic values we share!
