The November San Francisco ballot takes clearer shape this week

They include measures which raise the City parking lot tax by
ten percent, hike relocation fee from $1,000 to $4,500 for landlords
in some evictions, require formula chain stores to gain Planning
Commission approval for moving into some neighborhoods, require
employers to provide paid sick days for all San Francisco employees,
and limit City release of personal information to a third party
