  • Thanks, Sophie, for this informative overview.

    What are the specific powers, board of supervisors and mayor? It s my understanding that the supes get to weigh in but do not have the power to veto or approve the budget or any part of the budget. All of the legal power is the Mayor’s. Do I have that right?
