Exhilarating!/District Three Debate

Was lucky enough to get to the Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin's wedding early enough to be right outside the door of the Mayor's office. The way I can prove that is the picture up above that shows rose petals flying!

Rev. Cecil Williams came out saying it was "exhilarating". Aileen Hernandez a long time friend of Phyllis and Del and part of the 1970's Second Wave (second national president of the National Organization of Women) said that the ceremony was joyous and funny especially when you think about the traditional wording in a wedding ceremony when you have been together for over 50 years.

Last night Middle Polk Neighborhood Association put on District Three Debate. The big room was jammed packed with people supporting the nine candidates: Joseph Alioto, Jr., Harold Brown, Sal Busalacchi, Claudine Cheng, David Chiu, Mike DeNunzio, Lynn Jefferson, Denise McCarty and Wilma Pang.

Very well organized, very serious meeting about issues in District Three. There were five questions asked of each candidate: Dealing with crime and violence ; affordable housing, land use; open space, development and homelessness .

After listening to everyone you realize how important District 3 is to San Francisco - especially downtown San Francisco's tax base and the tourist industry . District 3 is is in need of more focus to take care of crime, safety and clean streets. That was obvious just walking from City Hall to the debate (especially around the Homeless Shelter at Geary and Polk).

Middle Polk Neighborhood Association have only been in existence since 2007 but they have done an excellent job of promoting and organizing their issues and going to the City of San Francisco to help solve their problems. Very impressive.
