RESULTS: BOMA SF-PAC Slate Card June 7, 2016 Election

BOMA San Francisco's Political Action Committee's Slate Card
June 7, 2016 Election

BOMA San Francisco has an active Political Action Committee that campaigns for candidates and issues that promote the economic vitality of the industry and the City and County of San Francisco. Here is a brief report of the June 7th election results.

Election Summary

The months before the June 7th election were anything but quiet in San Francisco as voters had a number of issues to consider and an even greater number of candidates for elected office - some understood, some ambiguous - to vote for. It was an unprecedented election for even the most fervent political insider that has resulted in an interesting turn in San Francisco politics.

For the last few years, the San Francisco's Democratic County Central Committee, or DCCC, the governing body of the local Democratic Party, has been led by group of moderate elected leaders that have improved the efficacy of the dominant political party in San Francisco. On June 7th, the voters of San Francisco decidedly shifted the balance of the DCCC and the end result of the change is one that will influence our local and state politics in the November election and, possibly, for years to come.

In short, the outcome of the June election was a mixed bag: voters approved the propositions our members supported and did not approve a majority of the candidates we supported for the DCCC. 

Scott Wiener who is currently a sitting San Francisco Supervisor running for the California State Senate, will face his opponent again in a November runoff.

It is a reminder of why BOMA members are involved in local, state, and federal politics: To protect our members, the small businesses that lease space in our buildings, and residents, from public policy that can impact our industry and the City and County of San Francisco.

We will need your help before the November election where it is expected that - due to the June election results - a number of tax measures will be on the ballot, both at the local and state level, that may have the potential to impact the economic vitality of the San Francisco business community. Stay tuned for future reports on what those may be. Just as important will be the candidates for local office. Specifically, the odd numbered supervisorial districts.
