Eric Quezada -Field Campaign Kick-Off

Saturday went to Field Campaign Kick-Off at Eric Quezada's District Nine headquarters at 2982 Mission Street (near 26th Street). Eric has very loyal friends and volunteers - everyone seemed to know each other .

Mike Casey, President of Unite Here Local 2 spoke about how loyal Eric was to the labor movement. Supervisor Chris Daley spoke about his friend Eric Quezada. He spoke about Eric being a movement candidate. Eric will keep the movement strong, keep neighbors active. Chris said 1/2 of his job as supervisor was land use. He said Eric was better than anyone on land use, an expert on immigration rights, tenant rights. He said Eric will bring diversity to the Board.

Eric spoke briefly - he talked about the Mission - his neighbors. He knows the neighborhood - he has been here 30 years.

It was so hot - but I decided to walk down Mission Street and saw the Guardian Angels - I asked if I could take their pictures - it was good to see them.

I then remembered there was a block party at 18th Street between Guerrero and Dolores Street. Wonderful food after you purchased tickets with proceeds going to the Women's Building. It was jammed packed with foodies which makes sense since it is the street for Bi-Rite, Delfina, Dolores Park Cafe, Tartine and Craig's Place. - the food smelled so good! People were walking around eating corn on the cob.

This walk in the Mission today was an indication of what is happening in the Mission - it's changing .
