Supervisor Deemed Ineligible for Re-election
SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)_ An appeals court has ruled that San Francisco Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier cannot run for another term.
The ruling overturns a decision last month by a Superior Court judge that she was eligible to run.
Under term limits passed by San Francisco voters 20 years ago elected officials can only serve two consecutive 4-year terms.
Alioto-Pier was first appointed by Gavin Newsom after he was elected Mayor and then she won re-election.
She argued that since she first served a partial term she didn’t reach the limit of two consecutive terms and was still eligible to run.
Alioto-Pier plans to file an appeal to the State Supreme Court by the end of the day Wednesday.
