Supervisor David Campos Speaks to BOMA Government and Public Affairs Committee Members

Supervisor David Campos

 

BOMA San Francisco's Government and Public Affairs Committee (GAPAC) welcomed Supervisor David Campos recently.  Mr. Campos provided an update of this work in District 9, City Hall and on other issues that are of concern to BOMA members:

  • Business Issues
    • While the Supervisor is forthright about his, as he stated, "progressive pedigree," Mr. Campos mentioned his willingness to engage with all stakeholders early and often to avoid unnecessary contests.
  • Payroll Tax Break For Small Businesses
    • Mr. Campos cosponsored legislation with Supervisor Mark Farrell that allows any business with a payroll under $500,000 to expand its payroll by $250,000 without having to pay the city's 1.5 percent payroll tax.
  • Rank Choice Voting 
    • He is supportive of the current election system in San Francisco is "open to a discussion on improvements to...the system."  
  • San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA)
    • He continues to work to curtail overtime and systemic budget issues that, in his view, hinder the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) from delivering transportation service to its customers.  The Supervisor has a good working relationship with Ed Reiskin, the Director of Transportation for the SFMTA (appointed in July 2011; Mr. Reiskin previously was the Director of the Department of Public Works), and mentioned that what the SFMTA needs is management support.  "Ed Reiskin gets that the [SFMTA] needs a manager" said Campos.
