For release:

At a special meeting on August 26, 2010, the San Francisco Ethics Commission:

Made the determination, by a vote of 5-0, in response to a request from Department of Elections, that a Charter amendment that would increase employee contributions to the Retirement System, decrease employers’ contributions to the Health Service System, and change rules for arbitration proceedings about City collective bargaining agreements would not have a significant “material financial effect" on the Sheriff or uniformed personnel in his office under the requirements set forward in San Francisco Charter Section 13.104.5.

The Commission’s next scheduled meeting will be held on Monday, September 13, 2010, at 5:30 p.m. in Room 408, City Hall.


The Ethics Commission, established in November 1993, serves the public, City employees and officials and candidates for public office through education and enforcement of ethics laws.  Its duties include:  filing and auditing of campaign finance disclosure statements, lobbyist and campaign consultant registration and regulation, administration of the public financing program, whistleblower program, conflict of interest reporting, investigations and enforcement, education and training, advice giving and statistical reporting.
