Endorsements for June 3, 2014 election:
California State Offices
State and Local Propositions
Vote Yes on Proposition ARepairs Critical Disaster Response Infrastructure Without raising taxes, Prop A will improve San Francisco’s firefighting and police infrastructure so that emergency responders can act quickly to save lives after a major earthquake or disaster, such as the recent fire in Mission Bay. Prop A will ensure the functionality of our city’s emergency service facilities, including our Emergency Firefighting Water System, neighborhood police and fire stations, and the medical examiner’s facility. Voting YES will allow the city to sell up to $400 million in general obligation bonds to finance these projects. For more information, please visit YesOnASF.com
Vote NO on Proposition BDon’t Be Fooled – Prop. B Will Make San Francisco Less Affordable for Working and Middle Class Families. Proposition B sounds good at first – but those who read it closely understand it is full of dangerous loopholes. Prop. B will allow clever developers to escape important environmental regulations. It means developers can build projects without the most important contributions to transit, parks or affordable housing. And it will cost the city millions in revenue. Please join the San Francisco Democratic Party, the San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco Police and Firefighters, the Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club, the Asian Pacific Democratic Club and many other groups and leaders in voting NO on B. For more information, please get the facts at www.NoOnB2014.com
Vote Yes on Proposition 41Housing and Services for Veterans - Vote Yes for Vets Prop 41 provides much-needed affordable housing and services for veterans. It authorizes $600 million in general obligation bonds for affordable multifamily housing to relieve homelessness and build transitional and rental housing, along with related facilities for veterans and their families. Support our veterans – they supported us! For more information, please visit YesOnProp41forvets.org
Vote Yes on Proposition 42Access to Public Meetings and Information Is a Right, Not a Luxury Prop 42 protects transparency laws that guard against corruption and mismanagement in local government. It enshrines the California Public Records Act and the Brown Act in the California State Constitution, thus guaranteeing open government and transparency are core local responsibilities.
