Subject line: We Urge BOS to Pull Agenda Items #3 & #4 from the agenda.

June 11, 2016

Board of Supervisors:

I am strongly urging the full Board to pull items 3 and 4 from the agenda and re-refer these items to the Government Audit and Oversight Committee.

The facts about the $207 million SFMTA revenue bond issuance that were in the Budget and Finance Committee packet differ from those presented at the SFMTA Bond Oversight Committee meeting on June 1.

Instead of re-referring these items back to the Budget and Finance Committee, I am urging the Board to re-refer these items to the Government Audit and Oversight Committee.

Based on my conversation with the office of the Clerk of the Board, procedurally these items may be re-referred if a motion is made and seconded.
