I'm not really sure if this applies to city hall but Ackerman was chosen but Willie Brown right?

Prohibiting pistols would make San Francisco a magnet for violent crime. If this law passes, criminals will laugh, but won't turn in their guns. Most criminals get their guns illegally, so they are already committing a crime by owning them.

This law will leave law abiding men and women with no defense against robbers, rapists, stalkers or home invaders. Violent criminals will know this and flock here seeking easy victims.

The sponsors of this flop have not done their homework. A long-standing California preemption statute prohibits cities from passing a patchwork of conflicting gun laws. If Prop H passes, we will have to pay for a costly lawsuit that San Francisco will lose.

San Franciscans should reject this unfair, unconstitutional and unworkable scheme.

Banning guns is not a progressive cause. Organizations including the San Francisco Pink Pistols oppose this ordinance because it denies gays the means to defend themselves against hate crimes.

I wonder.. [Feb. 10th, 2005|01:54 am]

There's a certain SF Supervisor who drives me crazy with her or her repeated attempts to make the same point repeated times by taking the floor again and again (and saying the sme thing) as if floor time equals a persuasive point. I watch the SF Supervisor meetings on a regular basis; they are archived at:
http://sfgov.org/site/sfgtv_index.asp?id=28468

In the interest of diplomacy I'll leave the name of this person out, but I wonder if others feel the same way about one or another. Is there some SF politician who just really gets under your skin for one reason or another? Why?

As somebody who gave his car away when he moved to SF, because I knew the public transportation was good and cheap, I am annoyed. If anything, I think they should raise things like parking fees, gas taxes, and parking ticket fines. Why make people who support public transportation pay?

6 million more found for budget. Well-used health, homeless services to receive funding. [Dec. 18th, 2004|07:55 pm]
San Francisco City Hall

If only I could just "find" money like this in my personal life. No need for six million dollars; hey, I'd settle for just sixty. But in any case I'm glad that money was found for basic city services in danger of being cut.

Although some would argue that they aren't "basic", most notably the mayor's office who prioritized the budget. Not that anyone could look at the potential cuts and come up with a solution that didn't cause some objection.

San Francisco officials continued to work their budget-balancing magic Tuesday by uncovering $6 million to help restore a handful of popular city services that were targeted for cuts.
