Mayor Ed Lee could be getting screwed out of his old job as city administrator. The Examiner reports this morning that city supervisors withdrew a June ballot measure that would have allowed the interim mayor to resume his old title.
That is, if voters had approved it.
As it stands today, the mayor is not allowed to take a city job for one full year after leaving elected office. But Lee took the position as interim mayor — and a paycut — on the condition that he could get his old job back when the term ended.
So city supervisors agreed to put a measure on the June ballot asking voters to allow Lee to resume his old title immediately after he vacated office as mayor.
But Supervisor John Avalos speculates that the measure wasn't polling well with voters.
