SF Green Party Weekly News and Events


Dear Greens,

    Please join us for our monthly meeting next week!  Details are
below.  Note that we're interviewing Mayoral candidate Joel Ventresca
near the beginning of the meeting, so please come on time.

    We submitted an official opponent's argument to the Department
of Elections in opposition to Prop D (the misleadingly named "traffic
congestion mitigation tax").  We lost the lottery to the Republicans,
so we will not be the official opponents.  However, our argument is
on our website, here:

    We will release an expanded version of that argument in our
Voter Guide, to be published after we finish making our endorsements.

  and bring your follow-up questions!
  Both Mayor Breed and challenger Ellen Zhou declined to answer
  our questionnaire, but sent statements instead.  Other mayoral
  candidates did not respond.

  make those endorsements at this meeting, or postpone a
  decision until the meeting on Sep 18.
