His decision to drop the item comes a week after another housing measure he backed at the polls suffered a decisive defeat. That measure, Proposition F, would have required the redevelopment of Bayview-Hunters Point to offer 50 percent of the housing at below the market rate, not the 30 percent as proposed.
“I thought that it would be appropriate to move the item along with Proposition F. So I, for now, defer to the voters,” Daly said, adding that his measure was “swamped with gobs of money from Lennar.”
Daly pulled the legislation during Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting, avoiding what was expected to be a defeat.
“We are like in the first quarter in terms of the debate and the discussion,” he said. “Today is not the day to push that vote politically.”
