Original Post: September 9, 2010
The time has come to rally around the most important issue facing San Francisco's neighborhoods and commercial corridors; Yes on Proposition L, for Civil Sidewalks, and No on Proposition M, the "poison pill."
Who wants Civil Sidewalks?
U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein
Mayor Gavin Newsom
Chief of Police George Gascon
Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier
Supervisor Sean Elsbernd
Supervisor Carmen Chu
900 + small businesses
1,000 + SF residents
& over 25 merchant and neighborhood associations
Proposition L will ensure public sidewalks are accessible for everyone, and that all San Franciscans can enjoy the public right-of-way without fear of harassment. This is a commonsense law that is being used with success in 60 other U.S. cities including Berkeley, Santa Cruz, and Seattle.
Proposition M is a political ploy by the Board of Supervisors intended to kill Measure L with a "poison pill." Prop M neither changes deployment of foot patrols nor resources; this Measure puts politics ahead of your public safety.
PLEASE, take a moment and imagine how tremendously our city would benefit from passage of this law, and if two hours of your time is worth seeing that change through.
