San Francisco landlords threaten to sink hospital bond

San Francisco Chronicle, September 24, 2008

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is clashing with the city's big landlords, who will try to tank the $887 million redo of San Francisco General Hospital that goes before voters in November. The fight stems from an unrelated disagreement involving sewer charges, and although the hospital measure currently has 75% approval with voters, city officials are worried a well-financed campaign against it could make for a close outcome.
