Huge Harvey Milk Candidate Meeting this Saturday, Bay Guardian Issues Endorsements

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

The powerful San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee is, once again, having elections come November. You’ll be confronted, once again, with a ballot that’s filled with a bunch of names, most of which you’ve never heard of, and the obligation to check off your dozen favorites.

If you want, you can head over to the intersection of Market and Octavia this Saturday, April 3, 2010 and then head into the the LGBT Center‘s Ceremonial Room from Noon to 5:00 PM. Then you’ll be able to see and hear some of the candidates for DCCC in 2010 address members of the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club.

They’ll all be answering a few questions from the crowd. (I don’t know if you need to be a member of the club to drop by, but you should be able to join the club, of course, if you want.)

The 12th District (Assemblywoman Fiona Ma country) reps the west side and 13th District (Assemblymember Tom Ammiano country) reps the east side of town, mas o menos. Find your district and see if any of these folks will be one of your twelve favorites:

John Avalos
Michael Bornstein

Sandra Lee Fewer
Chris Gembinski

Choose or lose…

And, oh yes, Alex Volberding would like everyone to know that he too is running for the DCCC in the 12th. But the two lists above aren’t exhaustive, they just show who plans on showing up at the next Milk Club PAC meeting. (The entire exhausting list of candidates for S.F. has 51(!) names this go-around.)

Jerry Brown Comes to San Francisco to Raise Money in Gavin Newsom’s Backyard

Sunday, October 4th, 2009

Well, actually Jer-bear‘s journey today took him to San Francisco’s leafy Woodland Avenue, home of both Jane Morrison and Agar Jaicks - it’s perhaps it’s a half-mile from Gavin Newsom’s new place on Masonic. So it’s kind of his backyard. Read all about the affair in this glowing report from Bill Wilson at the San Francisco Sentinel - was former Board of Supervisors President Aaron Peskin there? Take a look to see.

And look who else was there – it’s Robert Haaland and his union allies. You know, the very same Robert that San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newson “hates” (reportedly). For the record, Mr. Haaland had this bon mot:

“Jerry Brown wrote the book that Gavin Newsom needs CliffsNotes to understand.”

(Or “needs CLiffNotes to read,” something like that – there might have been different endings. The book in this context would probably be entitled Governance or some such thing – people were talking about Jerry’s forward-looking high speed rail proposals from three decades ago, stuff like that.)

Ouch.
