The sixth proposition that will appear on the May ballot is:

Proposition F

An amendment to the City Charter prohibiting a member of the City Council, the Chief of Police, member of any board, appointive officer or an employee, from holding other public offices when prohibited by law. 

The wording of this proposition as it was presented at prior public hearings: 

Measure E

An amendment to the City Charter prohibiting an employee, Council member or the Chief of Police from holding other public offices when prohibited by law.

Originally presented as the fifth in line of the proposals on the ballot, it has been moved to the sixth place. 

A change in the wording of this proposition increases the number/type of people prohibited from holding other public offices:  both members of any board(s) and appointive officers have been included.   

Earlier review of this proposal was:   

Proposition Number Five (#5)

 

An amendment to the City Charter prohibiting an employee, Council member or the Chief of Police from holding other public offices when prohibited by law.

 

Approval of this proposition will amend only one section of the charter by adding phrases containing the words “prohibited by law”:

 

Section 2.03     Prohibiting Holding or Running for Other Office.

 

No person elected to the City Council, or as Chief of Police, shall, during the term for which elected, be appointed to any office or position in the service of the City when holding those offices concurrently would be prohibited by law. A member of the City Council, the Chief of Police, or a member of any board appointed by the City Council, or any appointive officer or employee of the City who becomes a candidate for nomination or election to any publicly elected office other than re-election to the same position on the City Council or Chief of Police, where the holding of those offices are prohibited by law, shall forfeit that office or position with the City effective upon election to such office.

 

The section currently says: 

 

Section 2.03     Prohibiting Holding or Running for Other Office.

 

No person elected to the City Council, or as Chief of Police, shall, during the term for which elected, be appointed to any office or position in the service of the City. A member of the City Council, the Chief of Police, or a member of any board appointed by the City Council, or any appointive officer or employee of the City who becomes a candidate for nomination or election to any publicly elected office other than re-election to the same position on the City Council or Chief of Police, shall forfeit that place or position with the City effective upon election to  such office.
