Proposition F

Greater oversight of campaign consultants in San Francisco rejected

Proposition F, a ballot measure to increase The City’s oversight of campaign consultants, failed to pass Tuesday.

The measure, introduced by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, would have required consultants to file disclosure reports with the Ethics Commission monthly instead of quarterly, and electronically instead of only with paper copies.

Prop. F also would have loosened requirements on consultants. The measure would have raised the threshold for having to register as a consultant to those earning $5,000 for campaign work in a year instead of $1,000.

Annual fees paid by the consultants to The City would have depended solely on the number of clients they serve and not their total compensation.

Advocates of the measure argued it would not only provide more oversight, but also encourage grass-roots political efforts. Opponents said the measure would put more burden on campaigns.
