Film Commission ballot measure nears June ballot 

On Thursday, the Board of Supervisors Rules Committee sent to the full Board of Supervisors a proposed charter amendment for the June ballot that would change how the members of the Film Commission are appointed.

The measure, introduced by Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier, has picked up the support of Supervisors Chris Daly, David Campos and Eric Mar. It takes six votes by the full board to make it on to the ballot.

Currently, the Film Commission is made up of 11 members, who are all appointed by the mayor. If voters approve the measure, then the appointments would be divided up. The Mayor would appoint six, while the Board of Supervisors would appoint five.

The measure was introduced following Mayor Gavin Newsom’s decision to ask the commission’s executive director to resign.
