Rent Control Convention/March Calendar

"98 we hate - 99 is fine"

Rent control convention at the Main Library Saturday afternoon. Another meeting to organize for rent control against Proposition 98 and Yes on Proposition 99.

Ted Gillicksen and Dean Preston spoke about local and state issues - both of these men are excellent in presentation (keep it clear and concise - but still freak everyone out to do something!).

Both Assemblyman Mark Leno and State Senator Carole Migden spoke (I know - I know - not again!) - both of them were excellent. Leno was the cheerleader (the State Senate race is good - it brings people out to vote - no matter who you are for - they should vote for No on 98 and Yes on 98. ) Migden was extremely articulate expressing the rent control issues on the state level.

In San Francisco we are so spoiled - everyone is a Democrat and we tend to agree - so it is boring even talking about issues.
This isn't just about rent control, this is about renter protection laws, local zoning laws being eliminated.
The good news is that everyone is against No on 98. The bad news is the June is election turnout is going to be very, very low.

The campaign will be doing outreach, precinct walking and phone banking.

Please sign up!

We all have to talk to everyone - your neighbor, the people you work with - all those people that don't vote because politics is too yucky- they have to get out and vote to help carry the state.
