Board of Supervisors

Board to vote on overriding mayoral veto

The Board of Supervisors will vote this Tuesday on whether to override Mayor Gavin Newsom’s veto of legislation requiring regular police foot patrols.

Newsom vetoed the legislation while announcing new efforts to put more police officers on the streets. The legislation would require about 33 officers a day walking the beats around eight of the 10 district police stations.

The board had approved the legislation, which was authored by Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, in a 7-3 vote. Supervisor Jake McGoldrick was absent. It takes eight board votes to override a mayor’s veto.

The Board of Supervisors meets Tuesday, at 2 p.m., at City Hall, Room 250.
