San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders will support a sales tax/reform ballot measure, signing on to a revised proposal from Councilwoman Donna Frye and Councilman Todd Gloria this morning.

“I have been unwilling to support a sales tax increase without significant concessions from employee unions that substantially reduce the city’s structural deficit going forward,” Sanders wrote in a memo this morning. “The provisions proposed in the Reform Before Revenue Ballot Measure proposal constitute major concessions that, in my opinion, for the first time justify placement of such a measure on the ballot.”

The mayor said his support was contingent on provisions in the new proposal not changing.
