That's not really newsworthy in and of itself -- but what is newsworthy is that the committee meeting she missed was the one she had to be at in order to stop this water rate hike that she (and Ed Jew, who knows about water rate hikes) told everyone she was crusading against. Oops! So now there's no chance to stop the water rate hikes from going through, even though Alioto-Pier says she had a compromise worked out.
Alioto-Pier says this was due to a "scheduling mixup." How could it be a scheduling mixup? The website specifically says that her committee (Gov. Audit and Oversight) meets "every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month." Write it down in a calendar, MAP!
