San Francisco Examiner-
The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to place on the November ballot a charter amendment introduced by Supervisor Shamann Walton to allow non-citizens to serve on government advisory bodies.
The measure would eliminate the current requirement that those who serve on the bodies are registered to vote, which means they have to be at least 18 years old and a U.S. citizen.
“This is of course a pivotal time for us in history to remove the barrier of allowing undocumented immigrants a voice at the table,” Walton said. “They have been fighting and organizing in our communities for years. They are part of our economy. Their families and children attend our schools.”
