Professor McDaniel: Ballot Initiative for Cleaner SF Streets May Weaken Mayoral Power

KTVU-CHANNEL 2 (OAKLAND) -- Political Science Professor Dr. Jason McDaniel from San Francisco State University says while San Franciscans made the move to get cleaner streets it may also weaken the mayor.

“I think it’s a thing where people say ‘Yes, we want cleaner streets.’ It’s an issue that people in San Francisco care about and let’s do something about that,” said McDaniel. “It’s that kind of a message. Clearly a win for Matt Haney, but not necessarily a defeat for London Breed, except that her authority is going to be lessened with this.”
