Corrections: Several errors on the San Francisco ballot measures crib sheet have been corrected: Prop. A would issue a bond for $744 million, not $7.4 million. The tax described in Proposition B was set to expire in 2021, not 2017. In Proposition E, City Hall spent $5.5 million to maintain city trees in the 2014-2015 fiscal year, not 2017-2019.
