Tony Hall, Mayoral Candidate, Barred from Debate Because of His Stance on Pensions

Unions representing San Francisco's police officers and firefighters have barred former city Supervisor Tony Hall from participating in a debate among mayoral candidates slated for tomorrow, citing in part Hall's aggressive stance on reforming municipal workers' pension and healthcare packages.

In a statement released today, Hall said he had been informed by leaders of the San Francisco Police Officers Association that he was not invited to the union-sponsored debate because of his advocacy of “stronger pension reform” than that proposed by labor unions and Mayor Ed Lee.
