The Chronicle Editorial Board weighs in on the recent rulings surrounding the “Prop C’s,” two citizen initiative tax increases in June and November of last year which garnered majority, but not 2/3rds supermajority, voter approval.

The Editorial Board, which opposed both measures, chides City Attorney Dennis Hererra for allowing the measures to be listed as simple majority requirement measures when the law was not clear following a State Supreme Court ruling on another matter. Hererra was vindicated in court last week, as a judge agreed with his reading of the law. The matter is still working its way through the courts.
