March Election a Mixed Bag for Medicine

For the San Francisco Marin Medical Society, here are the main takeaways: - Low turnout favored moderate/conservative candidates/causes. - CMA/SFMMS-supported CA Proposition 1 (mental health facilities and funding) is slightly ahead, but remains too close to call – and could be for weeks if a recount is paid for by the opponents. - SFMMS-supported Measure A (affordable housing bond) looks poised to pass with just over the 66.6 percent needed (currently at 70 percent). - SFMMS-opposed Measure F (require addiction treatment for welfare recipients) is likely to pass, despite opposition from the medical community.   - Incumbents faced very little challenge to their seats.
