Statewide Measure Considered for Endorsement

The SFDCCC also voted on whether to endorse of one California initiative ballot measure, which is eligible for the San Francisco Democratic Party's endorsement. In general, the California Democratic Party considers and votes on whether to endorse or reject statewide measures. However, if the state party takes "No Position" on a statewide proposition, Article VII, §5.0 of the S.F. Democratic Party's Policies and Procedures Manual provides that "the local Party is free to take a position if it so chooses." As a result, the S.F. DCCC voted on whether to endorse the following statewide measure. 

  • No endorsement on Proposition 46: Drug and Alcohol Testing of Doctors; Medical Negligence Lawsuits; Initiative Statute
