You’d think the managers would have a better strategy against graffiti, but you’d be wrong…

Here’s What San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee’s San Francisco Looks Like: Empty, Graffiti-Covered Buildings in the FiDi

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Like this, at California and Battery in the Heart of the Financial District.

Physical Graffiti, the worst kind:

Is this your “Innovation Capitol of the World?”

Oh that’s right, you’re all about jobs jobs jobs. And you regularly issue press releases taking credit whenever our unemployment rate goes down.

But what about the time, just recently, when our unemployment rate went up, by half a percentage point?

Oh, so you don’t issue a press release taking credit for that, huh?

How is it possible for San Francisco’s unemployment rate to go up under your watch? How do you explain that?

Oh, that’s right, you don’t.

Maybe it’s possible that you have no effect upon the unemployment rate?

Maybe it’s possible that talking about jobs jobs jobs solely benefits you and your political faction?

Food for thought.

PS: You’re a national laughingstock, in case you don’t know. Why not do something to show that you’re, somehow, slightly independent of Willie Brown and/or PG&E? Just something, anything. Or are you going to be just a Nine-Year Do Boy?

Today’s Mayor Ed Lee Electoral Victory Lap Around San Francisco is Nothing But a Big F.U. to David Chiu

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

Ah, let’s see what’s on the agenda today – oh it’s a tour of the City, a kind of victory lap to celebrate yesterday’s big news.

Mr. Mayor will drop by Districts #4, #7, and  #10 with  area Supervisors. Check it:

“Mayor Lee to visit Sunset neighborhood merchants along Irving Street with Supervisor Carmen Chu to discuss jobs & small businesses.
Merchant walk to start at Sunset Super”

“Mayor Lee to visit West Portal neighborhood merchants along West Portal Avenue with Supervisor Sean Elsbernd to discuss jobs & small businesses.
Merchant walk to start at Squat & Gobble”

“Mayor Lee to visit Portola neighborhood merchants along San Bruno Avenue with Supervisor Malia Cohen to discuss jobs & small businesses.
Merchant walk to start at North East Medical Services (NEMS)”

Fair enough, but oh, here’s another one – it’s in District #3, you know, the realm of Board of Supervisors President David Chiu.

“Mayor Lee to visit Chinatown neighborhood merchants along Stockton Street to discuss jobs & small businesses.
Merchant walk to start at Self-Help for the Elderly”

You notice anything? That’s right, Supervisor Chiu isn’t invited to a merchant walk in his own district.

Do you think that this is a mere oversight on behalf of the scheduling secretary?*

I don’t.

This is WillieBrownRosePakEdLee saying Foxtrot Yankee to poor DC for, among other things, Speaking Truth to Power a few months back.**

Oh well.

President David Chiu (along with Dr. Malcom-esque District #1 Supervisor Eric Mar) in mayoral campaign mode last week.

Soon, if not already, he’ll be in supervisorial campaign mode once again. What do WillieBrownRosePakEdLee have in store for David Chiu for 2012?

Well, we’ll just have to wait and see…

*Will Ed Lee be the first San Francisco Mayor since the 1990′s to NOT have sex with a young, attractive, female, SFGov mayoral scheduling secretary? Why yes, you can bank on that. How refreshing!

**Play us out, Managing Editor James Gardner:

“’So, Ed,’ began David Chiu, recounting a private conversation he claims the two had shortly before Lee reversed his longstanding insistence he wouldn’t run. ‘You told me you didn’t have the fire in the belly. You’d looked in the mirror and said you didn’t want to run … but you didn’t know how to say no to Willie Brown and Rose Pak.’

OK, there’s a genuine gotcha. Ouch.”
