San Francisco's competing pension reform measures -- the "city family" Proposition C half-measure and the tougher Proposition D -- might both be in trouble, according to this San Francisco Chronicle column (scroll down a bit). According to Matier and Ross, "A new poll of 500 San Francisco voters shows Proposition C, the 'consensus' measure being backed by unions and City Hall, barely squeaking by, with 52 percent support. Proposition D, the rival measure put on the ballot by Public Defender Jeff Adachi, comes up short at 42 percent. ...With Adachi's measure appearing headed for defeat, the unions must now decide whether to spend big money to pass their measure - or hold back, let both measures fail and thus keep the status quo." What are the chances the unions will choose anything other than the status quo?
