Supervisor Mirkarimi Says Good-Bye – Ross Hearts District 5, District 5 Hearts Ross – Big Holiday Party Friday!

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Get all the deets at the new District Five Blog.

FAREWELL MESSAGE FROM SUPERVISOR MIRKARIMI

Dear Friends,

This will be my last newsletter as District 5 Supervisor. It’s hard to summon seven years of memories in this brief note, so come celebrate with us at our last holiday City Hall office party on Friday, December 16, 5:00 to 7:30 PM.

I want to take this opportunity to express my immense appreciation to my past and present office staff who blazed the journey with me, remaining focused on the job at hand while performing simultaneous constituent and legislative acts on a daily basis. The greater the challenge, the better they did. A conventional work day was rare. Often, work followed staff home – I’m grateful to the family and friends who supported their efforts while they gave it their all.

Thank you also to the fleet of amazing volunteers and interns who did everything from mundane clerical tasks, to delving into complicated or controversial projects. There is nothing more rewarding than hearing from former interns who parlayed their positive experience with us into a vocation that truly inspires them.

Most importantly, I want to thank the people of San Francisco and District 5. Our District is one of the most diverse, nonlinear demarcated districts in the city. The range of challenges was often nuanced depending on the specific neighborhood, but they all embodied the fusion of big urban demands with village interests. And I loved that because it was the centrifugal force of neighborhood activism that caused us to reconcile important competing considerations, no matter the issue big or small. Thank you to the volunteer-driven dedicated network of neighborhood groups and its leaders for their commitment to bettering one of the most majestic cities in the world.

I will be sworn in as San Francisco’s next Sheriff on January 8th.

Happy Holidays.

Yours truly,
Ross Mirkarimi

OK then.

Are people hanging red hearts in the Western Addition to say good-bye to RK? Maybe. As seen on Fulton near Baker:
