No taxes on the June ballot 

There was just a little chatter that tax measures – such as a parcel tax for parks or schools – might have been introduced Tuesday at the Board of Supervisors for the June ballot.

But no tax measures were introduced Tuesday, the deadline for them to appear on the June ballot. That leaves the November election as the next possibility. The City is facing a budget deficit of about $500 million for the second consecutive year.

With no additional revenue, The City is looking at layoffs and service cuts. What that will look like will become clearer soon.

“The mayor said he will discuss the budget in more detail in February, when the outlook is clearer. He announced Wednesday he would hold several town hall meetings next month to address budget issues,” according to the Examiner’s report on Mayor Gavin Newsom’s State of the City.
