Supervisor Breed: Wrong again 2

Supervisor Breed is wrong on every important issue facing San Francisco. She maintains that dismal record with the Examiner op-ed (Golden Gate Park fields for kids from all neighborhoods) she and Supervisor Cohen wrote in support of artificial turf in Golden Gate Park (She also supports allowing homeless people to live in the park).

Proposition H is supposedly all about providing the "kids" with fields to play on, but Breed and Cohen don't mention the growing realization that artificial turf is toxic to children, as this NBC report recently found:

After supporters of Prop. H gathered enough signatures to get it on the ballot, the Board of Supervisors and Mayor Lee put Proposition I on the ballot, a poison pill that will override Prop. H if it gets more votes.

According to Breed and Cohen, it's all about the kids---neither Breed nor Cohen have any children---but the city also wants to install lights on the Chalet soccer fields so that adults can play until 10:00 at night.

Both Breed and Cohen were elected under the city's baroque ranked choice voting system that dumbs down election campaigns and needlessly complicates voting, another "progressive" policy failure in San Francisco.
