Mayor to veto housing money


By Tim Redmond

The mayor's office is still mum on this, but we've heard today from several good sources that Mayor Gavin Newsom is planning to veto Sup. Chris Daly's $28 million affordable housing package.

This after the mayor made a big deal of saying he wants to spend money helping children and families.

The mayor, our sources say, has also indicated that if the board overrides his veto, he will simply refuse to spend the money.

None of this will go over well with the supervisors, particularly Daly, who chairs the Budget Committee and thus will be overseeing Newsom's budget.
