Yes on Newsom, No on A, Yes on H
No on Prop. A, yes on Prop. C, No on Prop. E, Yes on Prop. H.
No on Prop. A: In effect giving Muni workers a raise is a bad idea, but Peskin couldn't have put this turkey together without a pay-off to the unions. Until Muni drivers are no longer able to practice "sick-outs"--that is, simply not showing up for work without even calling in sick---they shouldn't be handed any more perks/benefits from the city. But most egregious is the anti-parking poison pill inserted by Peskin at the last minute cancelling out Prop. H. Prop. H is a sensible bill to allow enough parking to be built for the thousands of new market-rate housing units the city's aggressively pro-development policies are encouraging.
Yes on Prop. C: City progressives hate Prop. H, among other reasons, because a rich guy bankrolled signature-gathering to get it on the ballot. Is that any worse than allowing the BOS or the mayor to put a measure on the ballot without even a public hearing? 10,396 signatures were required to put Prop. H on the ballot, not merely the mayor or four members of the BOS, which is all that's required now.
No on Prop. E: The progressive BOS majority---Ammiano, Daly, McGoldrick, Mirkarimi, Peskin, Sandoval---put this on the ballot, though it originated in the fevered brain of Chris Daly, who has long had an obsession with besting Mayor Newsom. Daly likes the question time in the British Parliament, wherein the Primie Minister is hooted and jeered at by members of parliament. If passed Prop. E will only lead to more incivility in our politics, which is what Daly wants.
Yes on Prop. H: For years now the city's Planning Dept. has pursued an aggressively pro-development housing policy---endorsed by both the Board of Supervisors and the mayor---while, at the same time, discouraging developers from providing adequate parking for all those market-rate housing units, a dumb policy that's only going to make traffic worse in the city.
Discouraging parking in the city is part of the city's overall anti-car policy pushed by the bike nuts and their many enablers in city government. By passing Prop. H and defeating Prop. A, city voters would send a clear message to the city's anti-car forces to back off.
