October 8  |  Plan C November Election Endorsements

This November brings another important election to San Francisco.  In 2010 and 2011, moderates made significant progress at City Hall, swinging the political pendulum closer to the center.

August 7  |  Moderate Wins and Election Endorsements

There is good news for San Francisco moderates – a number of proposals from the “progressive” Supervisors that were set to show up on November’s ballot have been shelved. The proposals to gut Care not Cash, prohibit fees for parks and the anti-demolition ordinance were pulled from the November ballot after a number of the supervisors withdrew their support of the initiatives. The Board of Supervisors also tabled an ill-advised change to Healthy San Francisco that would have been a ... | Read More >

August 4  |  A Great Week for the Moderates

Are the progressives in retreat mode?  Over the past week, we’ve witnessed some promising developments at City Hall.  Last week, we saw Jane Kim and Eric Mar back away from a plan that would “gut” the Care-Not-Cash initiative.  Only John Avalos is left as an outspoken supporter.

December 10  |  TIC Voters a Factor in 2010 Supervisor Races

Tenancy-in-common (TIC) owners played a direct role in San Francisco supervisor races for the first time in the November 2010 election. These voters, typically young, first-time homeowners, have become increasingly frustrated in recent years as City Hall has done nothing to address the lengthening wait behind the condo lottery (condo conversion provides significant benefits to TIC owners, but San Francisco allows only 200 condo conversions per year – a number that is woefully inadequate). A board of supervisors ... | Read More >
