The makeup and powers of the Film Commission will remain as is after voters rejected Proposition C.

Introduced by Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier, the City Charter amendment aimed to change how the 11 members of the Film Commission are appointed. All are appointed by the mayor, but passage would have split the appointing power so five members would be chosen by the Board of Supervisors and six by the mayor.

It also would have granted more power to the commission when it comes to its executive director. Currently, the mayor appoints that position. Under Prop. C, the commission would have been able to appointe or remove the executive director.

The measure was supported by the Board of Supervisors and opposed by Mayor Gavin Newsom.
