District Five Recovery: LONDON CALLING – “You think I give a fuck about a Willie Brown at the end of the day?”

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

All Hail London Breed:

You think I give a fuck about a Willie Brown at the end of the day when it comes to my community and the shit that people like Rose Pak and Willie Brown continue to do and try to controls things.  They don’t fucking control me – you go ask them why wouldn’t you support London because she don’t do what the hell I tell her to do.  I don’t do what no motherfucking body tells me to do.”

Hey, you think maybe she’s watchedYouTube, just a little?

(Hey, you know, the two times when Mayor Ed Lee did a little independent thinking since Willie Brown and Rose Pak got him appointed Mayor are when he appointed the fairly stupid Christina Olague to replace Ross Mirkarimi and when he advocated for the complete non-starter “stop and frisk program.”Perhaps he should just do what he’s told 100% of the time instead of 90% of the time?)

In any event, HERE COMES LONDON BREED:

And her boosters, including Renel in the Morning:

Oh My! Kamala Harris and London Breed Both Oppose District Five’s Accidental Supervisor Christina Olague, a Sellout Progressive

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

California Attorney General Kamala Harris and future District 5 Supervisor London Breed: Whoa!

Click to expand

Until London Breed takes over, District 5 will have to make do with Sellout Supervisor Christina Olague.

Uh, what has the Sellout Supervisor done lately, you know, asides from running the bogus Run Ed Run campaign for Ed Lee and then getting appointed by Ed Lee?

It looks like she spends time defending her decision to sell out and doing what Ed Lee tells her to do.

Is Christina Olague the stupidest Supervisor since, I don’t know, Michela Alioto Pier? It sure looks that way, so far.

Let’s let her articulate herself:

“…begins a conversation.

it’s just time to have a conversation about it.

So I think there needs to be a conversation

I think it starts a conversation

I’m willing to start the conversation

then it can start the conversation.

So I think the conversation will start”

Why would you make the same fucking point the same fucking way seven times in two minutes? I mean, unless you’re on meth or something.

Moving on…

Mmmm, let’s see here, when’s the last time a sitting San Francisco Supervisor lost election?

That’s right, it was just after the last time a Latina got appointed to the Board. Remember?

Anyway, here’s a partial list of the people who don’t approve of Christina Olague being the Sellout Supervisor:

Kamala Harris, California Attorney General*
Rachel Norton, San Francisco Board of Education Member*
Netsanet Alemayehu, Fillmore Small Business Owner & Resident
Jarie Bolander, Past-President, North of Panhandle Neighborhood Association*
Gwyneth Borden, Commissioner, San Francisco Planning Commission*

Raven Brooks, Executive Director, Netroots Nation*

Margot Frey, Board Member, Alamo Square Neighborhood Association*
Melonie Green, Member, Lower Haight Merchants & Neighborhood Association*

Richard Hashimoto, President, Japantown Merchants Association*
Andrea Jadwin, Co-President, Inner Sunset Neighborhood Association*
Mike Kim, former President, San Francisco Young Democrats*

Karen Weinstein, former Chair, Women’s Caucus of the CA Democratic Party*
Brenda Wright, Commissioner, San Francisco Retirement Commission*
Plumbers and Pipefitters, UA Local 38

And what’s the response? This is just about the only thing she’s done so far. (Note which district the Gold Dust Lounge isn’t in.)

Anyway, Christina Olague will have trouble winning election this autumn.

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Well here’s the news of the day – it’s the launch of YesOnCNoOnD.com

Anyway, all the deets, below.

That Warren sure loves his banjo:

“PAULSON, FALK TO CO-CHAIR YES ON PROPOSITION C PENSION REFORM CAMPAIGN - Top Labor Leader, Top Business Leader Tapped To Lead Consensus Coalition

SAN FRANCISCO, August 31, 2011 – San Franciscans United For Pension And Health Reform today selected Tim Paulson and Steve Falk to serve as co-chairs of the campaign supporting Proposition C and opposing Proposition D on the November ballot.

Paulson is executive director of the San Francisco Labor Council, comprised of 150 local unions and representing 100,000 workers, and Falk is president and CEO of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, a 1,500-member organization representing the business community.

“We are pleased that San Francisco’s top labor leader and top business leader are working together to lead this coalition’s campaign for pension and health reform,” said Thomas P. O’Connor, president of Fire Fighters Local 798. “Unions and the business community don’t agree on everything, but on Proposition C, San Francisco is united.”

Falk praised Proposition C, which was developed with input from the community, introduced by Mayor Ed Lee, and passed unanimously by the Board of Supervisors.

“Proposition C saves taxpayers at least $1.3 billion over the next decade,” said Falk. “This measure is fiscally responsible and it will help keep us solvent.”

Paulson emphasized the measure’s fairness.

“Proposition C provides a safety net for hardworking city employees who earn lower wages,” said Paulson. “It keeps pension contributions stable for those making less than $50,000 a year. Those who make more pay more.”

O’Connor drew a contrast between Proposition C and Proposition D, a rival pension measure.

“Proposition C has widespread support because it was conceived in the light of day, with a public process that encouraged input and ideas from everyone,” said O’Connor. “On the other hand, the backers of Proposition D bought their way onto the ballot with signature gatherers who were paid five dollars a signature and repeatedly got caught on tape lying about what the measure would do.”

Today, San Franciscans United For Pension And Health Reform also announced the other members of its campaign committee. In addition to Paulson, Falk, and O’Connor, the committee includes other business and labor leaders, along with the measure’s sponsor at the Board of Supervisors:

Warren Hellman, Civic Leader
Gary Delagnes, President of the San Francisco Police Officers Association
Sean Elsbernd, Member of the Board of Supervisors
Steve Fields, Co-Chair of the Human Services Network
Larry Mazzola, Business Manager and Financial Secretary Treasurer of UA Local 38
Rebecca Rhine, Executive Director of the Municipal Executives Association
Bob Muscat, Executive Director of IFTPE Local 21
Sean Connolly, President of the Municipal Attorneys Association
