Election Day – Tuesday, November 6th
|October 10, 2007||Posted by jamie under Activism|
Please be sure to vote in the municipal election on November 6th. While the options for Mayor, District Attorney, and Sherriff may encourage you to mark a name (and maybe a 2nd or even 3rd choice) or to leave the ballot blank for those positions, it is very important that you do voice your opinion on the ballot measures.
I personally support voting Yes on A, No on H because I’d like to see better public transit and less encouragement of folks to drive alone in their cars at excessive speeds in the City and wreak additional havoc on pedestrians, bicyclists, and the environment in general.
SPUR is a fantastic organization for San Francisco public policy analysis, and they can help us figure these ballot measures out with their San Francisco Ballot Analysis 2007.
As my friend Gov. Howard Dean says, voting alone earns you a grade of C-. Please get involved in the governing of San Francisco, whether it be attendance at CACs, joining a neighborhood association and participating in those activities, or taking the Fire Department’s NERT training to be prepared for the next earthquake or other disaster that strikes. Please invest yourself in your community!
