As Seen Near Mervyn’s Heights: “Angela Alioto for MAYOR – She Can’t Be Bought!” – All Right, But Who Brought All That Up?

Monday, March 5th, 2018

So, some of her opponents can be bought – is that the implication?

7J7C0131 copy

IDK.*

Doesn’t seem the right slogan for her…

*Oh, it just occurred to me that she might be talking about her personal wealth and how it might keep her from being influenced too much by Area Billionaires or Entrenched Labor Union Interests, or things like that. You know, like Trump used to say / imply. But it seems he’s awfully influenced anyway as things turn out. No, I think there’s a better way to get this message across than the above from Angela.

***PRESS RELEASE*** “SUPERVISOR MALIA COHEN CALLS FOR CARETAKER APPOINTMENT TO DISTRICT 2 SUPERVISORIAL VACANCY”

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

[UPDATE: Whelp, so much for that. http://www.sfexaminer.com/sf-county-clerk-catherine-stefani-named-district-2-supervisor/ ]

“SUPERVISOR MALIA COHEN CALLS FOR CARETAKER APPOINTMENT TO DISTRICT TWO SUPERVISORIAL VACANCY

Resolution introduced by Supervisor Malia Cohen will urge Mayor Mark Farrell to appoint a caretaker Supervisor for District 2.

San Francisco, CA –Supervisor Malia Cohen introduced a resolution to the Board of Supervisors urging Mayor Mark Farrell to ensure a transparent and democratic process in the election of a Supervisor for District Two.

On January 23rd 2018, Mark Farrell’s appointment to serve as successor Mayor triggered an automatic vacancy in the District Two seat.  City Charter Section 3.100.15 grants the Mayor the power to appoint an individual for the District 2 seat.

Supervisor Cohen’s resolution urges that the Mayoral appointment be someone not seeking election to the Supervisorial seat in the regularly scheduled election in November 2018.

The resolution declares that any Mayoral appointment could have an “incumbency advantage” should they choose to run for the District Two seat in the November election, and acknowledges a preference stated by several Supervisors and members of the public for a “clean and transparent” election.

“We should hold each office to the same standard,” said Supervisor Malia Cohen. “This is about principle and good governance. A level playing field in the Supervisorial races is no less important than in the Mayoral race.”

The legislation will be introduced at the Board of Supervisors meeting on January 30, 2018.

MIschief Managed: “OVER 3 TONS” Route Prohibition Signs Replaced by “OVER 5 TONS” – So Now Large SUV’s are A-OK

Thursday, December 28th, 2017

Allow me to explain.

Take a look at this, from back in The Aughts:

SF Mayor’s Hybrid SUV is So Heavy it Needs an Exemption to be Legal on Many Streets

And then take a look at this, from college-boy Andy Bowers:

California’s SUV Ban

Anyway, that was then and this is now:

20171225_135615 copy

Now this sign aint in Frisco, but it’s the logical fix.

So if regular old SUV’s start to come close to being too heavy (be it actual weight, or curb weight, or Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) for existing laws, well then simply change the laws, right?

Five tons is way heavy.  Even the massive Ford Excursion, which left us some dozen years ago  is under 5 tons no matter how you  slice it.

Anyway, that solves this intractable problem.

(So if Gavin Newsom ever visits town again and wants to see his old crib on Masonic, and he wants to get there in a large black SUV (as is his wont) he’d be barred from going up there using Masonic as a couple of the blocks up there still bar passage of OVER 3 TONS vehicles, I’m srsly. The quick fix for Frisco would be a bump to five tons, easy peasy)

END OF LINE.

Somebody should check, on December 31st.
