I’m planning to work on a long-term story the next couple of weeks.

Before I disappear down a rabbit hole, I thought I’d share a collection of links from our coverage of the city of San Diego’s financial reform ballot measure, known as Proposition D, as a touchstone for the most important item for November’s election.

The city is asking voters to increase the sales tax by a half-cent to 9.25 percent once a series of 10 fiscal reforms are complete. Supporters hope it can address the city’s persistent budget deficit, now pegged at more than $70 million for next year.
