SF Mayor Lee dubious about cash for schools (SF Gate)

December 16, 2012 – Everyone loves kids and schools, but the Board of Supervisors and Mayor Ed Lee aren’t exactly seeing eye to eye over a proposed midyear infusion of city cash to help make sure about 1,900 San Francisco juniors can graduate in 2014. Legislation to give the school district $2.2 million in city money passed the board 7-4 on Dec. 11, but its sponsor, Supervisor Jane Kim, opted to push off the second vote until mid-January after Lee reportedly threatened to veto part of the spending bill. At issue is $840,000 of the money, which Kim has proposed getting from the city’s $15 million reserve.
