San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom vetoed an ordinance that would have required audio and video recording of all noticed meetings held in city hall meeting rooms, and to archive the tapes for citizen retrieval on the city’s web site. Newsom said the goal is “laudable” but that he had just directed a series of budget cuts and the tapings would cost at least $125,000. (5/7/08)
