On Oct. 4, the San Mateo City Council voted unanimously to support Proposition 22, the ballot measure that seeks to limit the state’s authority to borrow or withhold certain public funds from local governments. Opponents of the measure, on the Nov. 2 ballot, include the California Teachers Association and the California Professional Firefighters unions. Municipal governments across California want increased control over local funds.
