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:

And the San Francisco Bay Guardian has just issued its endorsements for the DCCC today.

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.)

Harvey Milk Club Endorses Debra Walker, Rafael Mandelman and Michael Goldstein for 2010

Get up to speed on the elections next month and next year over at the Usual Suspects.

And oh look, Rafael just made the Hot 40 Under 20 Hot 20 Under 40 list at 7×7 magazine. As seen in Duboce Park:

The 2010 election is only 370 days away, so keep these endorsements in mind over the coming days and months…

San Francisco Democrats Boo Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger at Gala – How Wude!

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

Pity poor Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger – tonight he crashed the annual San Francisco Democratic Party Fundraising Gala and Auction at the Fairmont Hotel atop Nob Hill and he was rewarded with a loud round of booing.

Poor guy. Did Assemblymember Tom Ammiano spontaneously yell, “You lie” at Arnold, ala Congressman Joe Wilson? Haha!

Here’s what you’re thinking - what about the paper trail, dude? Well, San Francisco’s got you covered as they print it all out - you can check for yourself. No hanging chads and no butterfly ballots in the 415 this year. Is City Attorney Dennis Herrera still working on this issue? Think so.
