There was no "win" to be had in this arbitration. The arbitrator could not have exceeded Measure B's limits without voter approval.
The continuing fight to invalidate this second tier will be focused on our quo warranto action, which seeks to invalidate Measure B in its entirety, including Tier 2. As we explained last week, we took a major step forward to that end when California Attorney General Kamala Harris GRANTED the POA's application to sue the City. Our lawsuit against the City will be filed next week.
