Measure E arose after the sexual harassment scandal that forced Bob Filner to resign as mayor.
It was drafted when city leaders realized the San Diego charter lacked a procedure for removing elected officers, other than by a voter-initiated recall.
Measure E has two main parts:
The grounds of removal include mental or physical incapacity, felony conviction, and dereliction of duty.
Measure E also requires the city attorney to have been licensed in California for ten years.
Supporters of Measure E say it will clarify the process for removing officials convicted of felonies and other serious crimes, are derelict in their official duties, or become physically or mentally incapacitated.
Measure E is supported by the San Diego City Council and the Chamber of Commerce.
No argument against the measure was filed in the Office of the City Clerk.
