The debate over San Francisco's Proposition C took a high profile turn last week when Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff criticized Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for being critical of the measure, which would tax large businesses to help fund housing and services for the homeless. Supporters of Proposition C believe the projected $300 million in revenue the measure would raise is necessary to adequately address the city's homeless problem. Critics, including San Francisco Mayor London Breed, are concerned about oversight, accountability and possible effects on the local economy. Tell us, what questions do you have about San Francisco's Proposition C?
