Newsom’s budget advisor: State cuts could hurt SF 

Come June 1, San Francisco will have a balanced budget, but that doesn’t mean The City will be clear of more cuts down the line.

Mayor Gavin Newsom’s Budget Adviser Greg Wagner warned that it’s possible the state won’t adopt a budget until long after San Francisco does. Having said that, the potential effects from state cuts could be more devastating to cities than what is currently expected, he said. Right now, San Francisco budget officials have factored in a $40 million hit from the state into its $483 million budget shortfall.

“We are anticipating there will be a huge hit to The City when the state eventually passes its budget,” Wagner said.
