San Francisco, You Have a Budget

Supervisor Chris Daly found himself the odd man out in all the passed-budget parties.

With a 10-1 vote, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors managed to pass the budget deal, which was summarily signed by Mayor Gavin Newsom.

Newsom took the opportunity to thank Board President David Chiu and the labor unions which negotiated compromises, but gave the cold shoulder to the union representing Muni drivers, who have yet to strike a deal.

"This is not a perfect budget, but I think it's a good budget," Chiu told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Also getting the cold shoulder? The lone dissenting vote, Supervisor Chris Daly who is soon termed out, must have been forgotten when the mayor deemed the vote "unanimous."

Burn.

Jackson West will probably have to watch from the sidelines next budget season.
