Thanks for joining the SF Mayor Candidates Forum tonight! You made great points and represented yourself well, however I recommend you stop saying the phrase “stabilize” the homeless situation because it wasn’t clear what you meant by that. Perhaps you could use a different phrase, or explain what you mean: Do you want to maintain the number of people who are currently homeless, or do you want to get them into a more stable housing situation (i.e. help them not be homeless anymore). Wishing you all the best of luck in the upcoming race! Keep fighting the good fight :)

Your stunt tonight at the mayoral forum was shameful. I listened to you outside and was interested. After your stunt, I’ve written you off.

You will never win as San Francisco’s next mayor when you cannot obey our laws. Your campaign is sticking your campaign signs on street furniture which is illegal. It is disgusting, trashy, and pollution. I will be contacting
and 311. So, please remove them.

Hello! We are a community organizing group comprised mostly of low-income San Francisco families of color. Our children suffer in the lowest-performing schools, and we are passionate about creating a better future for them, as soon as possible. In a city where most families with privilege attend private school, we see limited leadership and accountability by both the school district and the city government on this issue. We are challenging the 2018 mayoral candidates to take a stance on education and to speak to our community about these issues. Please be our guest at a Mayoral Candidates Forum in Late April or Early May. Let us know which date you can commit to and we will be in touch. Hundreds of families will be attending!

Amy, you were wonderful last night at the debate. You were the conscience – the energy that kept the others tethered to a progressive base. Thank you.

Dear Candidate Weiss,
My name is Peter Nasatir, I have been a citizen of San Francisco for 30 years and in that time, because of my interest in San Francisco, a number of my friends and coworkers (and subsequently their friends and acquaintances, too) turn to me to find out what’s going on in local politics. Usually it’s around an election, but lately they have turned to me for information on the upcoming mayor’s race.
The problem is, aside from general platitudes about how we have to find common ground and so on, I don’t really know where you stand on issues which are important to me and my friends, and subsequently their friends as well. I would say that I influence about a hundred people who are normally apolitical and don’t normally understand the issues, but want to vote, so they turn to me.
Therefore I would like to ask a few questions that would give us a sense of your position on certain issues which are important to us.
Many other San Francisco businesses that pay taxes and hire locally, like Hoogasian Flowers, don’t share in the benefits that the tech companies get regarding the amount of taxes they are required to pay compared to the profit they make. Would you end the so called “Twitter Tax Break” and insure that all the tech companies who had not paid their fair share in taxes, now do so?
Do you support the No Eviction Without Representation initiative on the June ballot? Most importantly, why you have taken that position?
Where do you stand on
? What is your position on the city moving toward public power?
budget seems to get cut back and fares increased every year, yet at the same time the building of the Central Subway continues to cost millions more than planned, therefore how do you propose funding both without raising fares or cutting service any further?
With two thirds of the city’s population renters, what are your positions on rent control? Do you favor extending it to buildings built after 1979?
What is you plan for the homeless in the city, given that many of them are that way due to evictions, in addition to mental illness and drug abuse?
What is your plan to retain teachers, paramedics, and other personnel vital to the city, but who cannot afford to live here?
Do you favor mandating future high-end developments proposals include an affordable component within the development, and not off-site?
What is your position on historic preservation? Do you feel it is better refurbish and upgrade existing buildings, or do you favor razing them to build new structures?
Cities like Chicago and New York are in many ways ahead of San Francisco in implementing green and sustainable policies. What is your plan for reducing our greenhouse gas emissions? How do you plan on introducing alternative forms of energy such as solar, wind, and tidal power? Please be specific.
Where do you stand on Sen. Weiner’s bill SB 827, and do you believe there should be an affordable component beyond what the city requires?
I, and my friends, very much look forward to your response.

Dear Candidates for SF Mayor,
Thank you very much for your service and dedication to the citizens of San Francisco. I wish you each the best in your run for Mayor.
Some of you have seen the message below before. I would like to ask each of you to help me understand what you would do as a citizen and then as Mayor if the dangerous drug dealing activities that happen on the 700 block of Eddy St. between Polk & Van Ness (patrolled by the Northern District police, not the Tenderloin) were happening in your neighborhood. I have worked with the police and the district attorney’s office. I believe they are doing what they can. As mayor, what would you do? This is more than a law enforcement issue. It is more than a judicial issue. This is a city wide issue that needs urgent attention and leadership. Can you offer that?
In addition to the information I share below, on Friday afternoon, 2/9 at approximately 4p.m. I observed one of the drug dealers I see regularly, beating up another one of the drug dealers that I sometimes see him “working with”. I do not know the circumstances of the fight. It was taking place at the 31 bus stop at the corner of Polk & Eddy. At least one elderly passenger was afraid to get off the bus because of the fight. I have wondered when the violence would start. I saw no weapons just the physical fight, but I’m told by police officers that at the very least most of the dealers carry a knife.
Please offer your insights and leadership.

Subject: Dangerous drug dealing in the 700 block of Eddy St.
Date: January 27, 2018 at 10:16:24 AM
Dear Officers of the Court and elected officials,
Please help me make my block and my neighborhood safer. For many months now (at least since November 2017) I have been working with a number of officials from 311, City College of San Francisco,
, Homeless Outreach Team, the owners and management of my building, local businesses, and neighbors to make the 700 block of Eddy St. safer by reporting frequently observed drug dealing to
Dispatch. Many have done their part. Now we need the help of the judicial system.
Why this is
a victimless crime. I have observed many elderly neighbors dodging active drug deals when they get on and off the bus and as they move down the street with their walkers and wheelchairs. I have observed women and others, including myself, be intimidated as we get off the bus or “interrupt” or “surprise” the dealers/buyers in their business deals. I watch dealers take rocks of drugs from their mouths and exchange them for cash with people on the sidewalk and in cars. Other victims are the buyers/users. I have observed violence among and between people who appear to be experiencing homelessness and other buyers and the dealers. I have seen one buyer’s car being kicked by the dealers when a deal appeared to be going wrong. The buyer slammed his car into reverse and sped away in a very erratic and unsafe way and could have hit a pedestrian, a cyclist or another vehicle. As I walk my dog, many nights, there have been dealers in front of my building at 747 Eddy who intimidate me as I try to pass with my dog. Many residents in my building are fearful and many are considering moving.
I am told that the courts can help by issuing several orders when the dealers are arrested. We need search conditions for repeat offenders. We need stay away orders issued and enforced. We need electronic monitoring. We don’t need these people pushed to another block just to return. When they are released “OR” they are back in front of our homes and businesses within hours and sometimes in more numbers than before. Again these are not victimless crimes when residents and innocent passers by are intimidated and in the path of possible danger if just one drug deal goes wrong.
Thank you for your service to the community and your concern for all of the citizens and voters.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’m happy to appear in court to make additional statements about the dangers I see every day in my neighborhood if that would be helpful.
Best and grateful,
700 Block of Eddy St.

I attended the Mayor’s forum hosted by SF Chronicle’s John Diaz. I am 100 percent sure that I am voting for London Breed. However, I am the proponent of a SF ballot measure and would like to discuss it with you. The measure can be view at

Amy, The Superior Court has asked us to give you notice of a hearing that may impact your candidacy for mayor next Friday. It is related to an action filed by Angela Alioto against the City and Mark Leno related to the transfer of his funds from another election. Could you send me your contact information so that we can send you the information. Time is of the essence.
