The campaign opposing the November ballot measure seeking to increase the powers of the mayor’s office in Sacramento has landed its first organized-labor support.

Central Labor Council leader Bill Camp was reinstated to his position as the group’s executive secretary this week after an internal power struggle, but plans to retire at the end of the year if a suitable replacement is found for him.
Voters will decide in November whether Sacramento will change its form of city governance to a “strong mayor” system that gives the person in that office enhanced budget and veto power, among other significant enhancements to the position. Would that be a good thing for the city?
A lawsuit challenging Sacramento’s subsidy for the new Kings arena has cleared a legal hurdle, keeping the suit alive.
