Hola Neighbors,

In November, we get to vote on the Supervisor position for Districts 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10.

You can use the link below to find your district.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Fran...

I will be interviewing the District 6 candidates and sharing the information here. Beginning in September, I'd like to host small gatherings to discuss the candidates' position on major issues. I will host a meeting at my office, Atelier Advisors, and plan to reach out to others to ask them to host meetings as well. Ideally, we should have meetings before standard work hours, during standard work hours, after standard work hours, and on weekends. Standard work hours are 9:00 to 5:00 (source: Dolly Parton).

A few major issues that have come up a lot:

Issue: Population at St. Vincent de Paul Society (525 5th Street)
Action Item: I'm setting up a meeting with the director to discuss chronic problems with residents who abuse the neighborhood.

Issue: Violence at Victoria Manalo Draves Park
Action Item: I am speaking with SFPD about this today

Issue: Unruly crowds from End Up (Sundaze on Sunday afternoon) and 1015 Folsom (Pura on Saturday nights)
Action Item: I have already talked with SFPD and plan to speak with the owners.

What are some other major issues we need to discuss? List them below and I'll add them to the list for my interviews.

Thanks in advance!
Lili

Thanks, Dan and Tom. I've received lots of great feedback.

The one issue that people tend to be fixated on is the use of liquor licenses in District 6. People from Tenderloin feel it is overkill and people from South Beach feel it is just right.

I sent Dan an email to see if it is possible to gather data on the issue.

Thanks, Tom. I've been teaching for over 20 years. I did a class like this in the Marina years ago. I'd love to bring it to SoMa.
