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. 

RSVP Today!
If Yes on Prop L/No on Prop M is not successful in November, it is highly unlikely that we will have the opportunity to address this problem for decades. This is why we need YOUR help. Do you have two hours to give between now and Election Day? 

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.
