SFDCCC Endorsement Meeting - March Calendar


Endorsement meeting for the San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee was held last night at SEIU 1021 office at 350 Rhode Island across from the new Whole Foods.

The first item on the agenda was endorsing Gerardo Sandoval for Superior Court Judge in his race against Thomas A. Mellon.

Committee voted by Acclamation (dictionary defintion - a loud eager expression of approval or praise) for No on 98 (anti-rent control) and Yes on 99.

A School Parcel Tax - Yes
B Changing Qualifications for Retiree Health and Pension Benefits - Yes
C Forfeiture of Retirement benefits for Conviction of a crime involving moral turpitude - No
D Appointment to City Boards and Commissions - Yes
E Requiring Board of Supervisors' approval of Mayor's Appointments to the PUC and creating qualifications for commission members- Yes
F Affordable Housing Requirements-Chris Daly Ordinance - No
G Mixed-Use Development Project - Yes
H Prohibiting Elected Officials, Candidates or Committees they control from soliciting or accepting contributions from certain city contractors - Yes

The actual voting portion of the meeting did not take that long. The members of the SFDCCC work well together and were serious about their votes - expressing their opinions in brief statements.

Members of the audience were able to make one minute statements at the beginning of the meeting. Most of the comments were about the two housing items about the Bayview Hunters Point.

It was obvious that choosing between the two housing items were difficult votes for the members. There were 11 votes yes for Daly's motion and 19 no's.
