City Council Takes on Ranked Choice Voting Ordinance Tonight

The San Leandro City Council will vote on an ordinance to implement ranked choice voting (RCV, also known as instant runoff) at its meeting tonight, Monday, April 5, 2010. The item was continued from the March 15, 2010, meeting, when it was pulled from the consent calendar by Councilmember Joyce Starosciak. At that meeting, three of the City Council members were absent, including supporters whose votes would be needed to approve the ordinance. A previous vote on RCV passed with Starosciak and Councilmember Bill Stephens voting no.

Other items on the agenda include an update on the draft Fiscal Impact Assessment for the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center and an update to the City's Housing Element.

The San Leandro City Council meets in the City Council Chambers at 835 E. 14th Street at 7pm on Monday, April 5, 2010.
