The Public Press is meeting with neighborhood groups in San Francisco. Can we talk to you?

Elections

Candidates: Mayor

Noah Arroyo, San Francisco Public Press — Oct 19 2015 - 2:49pm

Mayor Ed Lee is running for a second four-year term without any prominent, powerful or well-financed opposition. But five eclectic challengers hope the city’s ranked-choice ballot will deliver a surprise victory to one of them.

Proposition A: Affordable Housing Bond

Noah Arroyo, San Francisco Public Press — Oct 5 2015 - 4:18pm

Proposition A would create a fund with up to $310 million for helping people remain in, and move to, San Francisco if they otherwise could not afford to do so.

Proposition B: Paid Parental Leave for City Employees

Noah Arroyo, San Francisco Public Press — Oct 5 2015 - 4:13pm

Proposition B would increase paid parental leave for qualified city government workers.

Proposition C: Registering Lobbyists

Noah Arroyo, San Francisco Public Press — Oct 5 2015 - 4:11pm

Proposition C would require more people to register as official lobbyists if their behaviors merited that title, potentially increasing transparency in government.

Proposition D: Mission Rock Waterfront Development

Noah Arroyo, San Francisco Public Press — Oct 5 2015 - 4:08pm

Proposition D would make it possible for the Mission Rock waterfront development to move forward in the Mission Bay neighborhood.

Proposition E: Requirements for Public Meetings

Noah Arroyo, San Francisco Public Press — Oct 5 2015 - 4:06pm

Proposition E would give members of the public more access to, and control over, the meetings of San Francisco government’s “policy bodies,” which direct City Hall’s political agendas.

Proposition F: Regulating Short-Term Rentals

Noah Arroyo, San Francisco Public Press — Oct 5 2015 - 4:05pm

Proposition F would actively regulate the city’s short-term rental industry, much of which operates largely outside of City Hall’s knowledge and control.

Propositions G and H: Defining ‘Clean’ or ‘Green’ Energy

Noah Arroyo, SF Public Press — Oct 5 2015 - 4:03pm

To wrap your head around these dueling ballot measures, you first need to understand CleanPowerSF, San Francisco’s forthcoming municipal utility system that breaks Pacific Gas & Electric’s monopoly on delivering electricity to city residents.

Proposition I: Mission District Housing Moratorium

Noah Arroyo, San Francisco Public Press — Oct 5 2015 - 4:00pm

Proposition I would block the construction, demolition or conversion of nearly all new, unpermitted market-rate housing in the Mission District for 18 months, giving city officials and community groups time to create a long-term plan for helping low- to middle-income people who live in the neighborhood. Projects for 100 percent affordable housing would not be affected.

Proposition J: Legacy Business Historic Preservation Fund

Noah Arroyo, San Francisco Public Press — Oct 5 2015 - 3:54pm

Proposition J aims to help longtime businesses continue operating in San Francisco.
