Supervisors Owe Public Better on Mayoral Selection

Yesterday, the Board of Supervisors voted to not choose the next mayor. That's the second week in a row that happened. And it comes on the heels of a marathon public debate of how, exactly the supes would select that next mayor.

Settling on the process the supes have yet to use took many hours and was complex enough that, at one point, Supervisor Chris Daly uttered the following: “You can vote for the amendment to amend or you can go with the motion that amends the motion to amend.” Of course, there's a far less complex method behind not choosing a mayor than choosing one: Just do nothing.
