Proposition E: Utility prop in stalemate

Proposition E was a close contest, with the votes in favor at 52.75 percent with 515 out of 580 precincts reporting. If it passes, the body that oversees The City’s water, sewer and municipal power will be dumped from office this August. The mayor will continue to be charged with appointing new commissioners, but the Board of Supervisors will be able to reject a choice with six votes, instead of the current eight. Proposition E also stipulates that commissioners hold specific qualifications.
