Annual Plan C Fundraiser Event

Please join Plan C board members and friends at the 10th anniversary of our annual fundraiser on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm to celebrate our recent victories – and, most importantly, to discuss our plans going forward.

The night’s featured speakers will be San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, and Supervisor Mark Farrell.

After a decade of hard work and persistence, we have much to celebrate this year with the election of a more moderate Board of Supervisors and many other accomplishments!

Plan C played a direct role in helping elect moderate supervisors Scott Wiener and Mark Farrell, and ensure passage of the Sit/Lie Ordinance and other initiatives. More recently, we worked to promote the payroll tax waiver to keep Twitter in San Francisco and encourage a mid-Market Street economic rebirth.

You can help us build upon our recent successes. Much depends on this coming November’s mayoral race, the first time ranked choice system will be engaged for a mayor’s election. You can count on Plan C, as San Franciscans have since 2001, to provide you with the city’s most widely used moderate voting guide.

Please join us as a sponsor for our 10th Anniversary fundraiser on June 22. Organizational and individual sponsors will be listed as co-hosts, hosts and premier hosts on event invitations, email reminders and signage. Hosts at all levels will receive tickets to the event, the quantity commensurate with donation level. Individual hosts at all levels will receive a one year paid Plan C membership with voting rights.

D2 Update: Mark Farrell Declares Victory Over Janet Reilly – Will Meet With Michela Soon – Preparing for Office

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

[UPDATE: And Janet Reilly just conceded. Read her entire statement after the jump.]

Interesting candidate Mark Farrell has pulled off his upset in District 2. That means that he’ll become a San Francisco Supervisor come January 2011.

Read all about it, below.

Big Mark Farrell (in Giants Orange) y familia at Room 48 in City Hall all the way back in August 2009:

“As of this evening, all the votes have been counted in District 2 by the San Francisco Department of Elections and we have won the District 2 Supervisor election. With tonight’s victory, we now turn our immediate attention to preparing for office in January.  Our transition team is in place, and I will be meeting with District 2 Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier tomorrow to kick-start the transition process.  I will also finalize the hiring of my City Hall staff within the next week.

I would like to acknowledge and thank all of my opponents – Kat Anderson, Abraham Simmons, Barbara Berwick, Janet Reilly, and Vilma Guinto Peoro – for a very exciting and challenging campaign.  They are dedicated and valued public servants who are each committed to the people and neighborhoods of District 2, and I look forward to working with all of them in the future.

While the past few weeks have been challenging as the vote count continued after Election Day, I fully recognize the need for a transparent and democratic electoral process – as such, I want to thank the leadership and staff of San Francisco’s Department of Elections for their dedication and diligence in completing this difficult task.

I would also like to personally thank all of those individuals that supported my campaign, beginning with Sheriff Michael Hennessey and in particular Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier and Supervisor Sean Elsbernd. Thank you as well to the organizations which supported my campaign along the way, including the Small Property Owners of San Francisco, Plan C, UA Local 38, BOMA, the District 2 Democratic Club, IBEW Local 1245, the San Francisco Coalition for Responsible Growth and Rescue MUNI.

Thank you to my incredible staff, including Chris Lee, Margaux Kelly, David Latterman and Mark Randolph, and in particular the hundreds of volunteers who poured their time and energy into this campaign – we would not have succeeded without your enthusiasm, and I will be eternally grateful.

Most importantly, thank you to my amazing family – from my wife Liz and our children, to my parents, in-laws and brothers and sisters – we started this journey last year together as a family, and your unconditional support truly carried this campaign across the goal line.

While it was a long campaign and ultimately a close election, I am both honored and excited to represent the residents of District 2, and look forward to working to return common sense, fiscal discipline and neighborhood leadership back to City Hall.”

And here’s what Janet has to say tonight, after the jump.

Columnist Ken Garcia Doesn’t Endorse Candidates, Oh No. But Slate Cards? For Sure!

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

[UPDATE: C.W. Nevius just issued his endorsement slate just now as well. What a coinkidink! Is he in the same machine/faction as Ken Garcia? Oh yes. Hey, do you think either of these two will run for the DCCC or other elected office someday? Stay tooned...]

I don’t know, Ken Garcia’s latest joint has this tidbit:

“…I don’t endorse candidates…”

But then he goes and endorses groups of candidates thusly:

“If you need guidance, there are several respected groups that carry election endorsements worth checking out, including the websites for the Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club, the City Democratic Club*, Plan C, and the Building Owners and Managers Association.”

So he doesn’t endorse candidates, but he does endorse endorsements of candidates? O.K. fine.

If you vote for somebody not on this slate card, you might be electing a person who is not “sane.”

Per K.G., the “local Democratic party organization was the object of a coup.” Really? Isn’t a coup a “sudden unconstitutional deposition of a government?” Yes it is. But didn’t San Francisco voters vote in the representatives on that body? Yes they did. Were these voters insane from Ken Garcia’s standpoint? Apparently. Or they were misled. Or they’re stupid. Something like that. O.K. fine, if you say so.

I mean, did Aaron Peskin and Chris Daly “rid” the DCCC of “many of its moderate members” or did the voters? Oh well.

In conclusion, Columnist Ken Garcia Doesn’t Endorse Candidates, Oh No. But Slate Cards? For Sure!

*Confusingly, some of the candidates endorsed by the City Democratic Club don’t reside within the walls of the Chamber of Commerce Fortress of Reaction. Kenny-boy doesn’t really want you to vote for those people, actually, so consider the City Democratic Club endorsement slate an outlier, FYI.
