Elsbernd Vows to Push Charter Amendment Assailing Muni Drivers' Pay


Following Muni drivers' hearty rejection yesterday of union concessions that would have saved the city some $15 million, Supervisor Sean Elsbernd — the union's bête noire — vowed to SF Weekly in no uncertain terms that he will be initiating a signature-gathering drive to challenge the Transit Workers Union via the ballot box.

“I am certainly going for it,” he said regarding the placing of a charter amendment on the November ballot — a move that will require the gathering of 60,000 signatures city-wide by June. “This is a hell of an undertaking.”

When asked who would be footing the bill for his crusade, Elsbernd quickly replied “I don't know. I have no idea.”
