Based on absentee mail ballot results, 64.91% of San Diego voters so far have favored Proposition C, which calls for the mayor to appoint the city auditor, who will report to a newly formed City Council audit committee. The proposition also restructures the city’s financial chain-of-command.

Currently, the city’s internal auditor presently is appointed by, and reports to, the mayor. Prop. C supporters say the measure will grant new independence to the auditor by holding him or her accountable to a newly-constituted city council audit committee, but opponents claim that the auditor would still not have enough independence because he or she would still be appointed by the mayor.
