Film charter amendment first to ballot 

The Board of Supervisors voted 9-0 Tuesday to place on the June ballot a charter amendment that would take away the mayor’s power to  appoint all 11 film commissioners.

It is the first charter amendment to make it on to the June ballot. If approved by voters, the appointing power would be divided between the mayor and the Board of Supervisors, who would appoint five of the eleven.

The measure was introduced by Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier following Mayor Gavin Newsom’s request for executive director Stefanie Coyote’s resignation.

On Tuesday morning the commission approved a $23,000 severance agreement with Coyote.

Supervisors John Avalos and Michela Alioto-Pier were excused from the meeting.
