If you asked me three months ago whether Prop C, the outsourcing initiative for the city of San Diego, was going to pass, I probably would have said, “easily.” Voters in San Diego want the mess at City Hall cleaned up, and at first blush, Prop C promises to do that. But it is never as simple as that. Our mayor and city attorney have both had to do a little backtracking on the measure, admitting it has flaws that will require a clean-up ballot measure in 2008 if it passes. Suddenly, one of the two initiatives Mayor Jerry Sanders is hanging his reform hat on doesn’t look like such a sure thing.Frank De Clercq
