Voters approved a tax on San Francisco’s richest company to fund homelessness services, but the measure is no longer than two-thirds majority to dispute disputes.
Proposal C had about 60 percent of the vote Wednesday, but critics say it must reach 67 percent because it is a “special tax” and not a general tax.
San Francisco’s largest private employer, Marc Benioff of Salesforce, donated at least $ 8 million to the cause, calling out Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey and others for their opposition.
Zynga Chairman Mark Pincus tweeted the Prop. C “is the dumbest, least imaginative prop ever.”
San Francisco Mayor London Broad opposed the action but said the voters “sent a clear message” for more money.
