June 2012 Endorsements

The SF Green Party has made the following endorsements for the June 2012 election:

(see longer explanations for the propositions below)

 

Prop A (garbage contract) - No

 

Prop B (Coit tower) - Yes

 

Prop 28 (term limit reform) - Yes

 

Prop 29 (cigarette tax) - Yes

 

President.  Although the corporate parties have wrapped up their primaries, we still have a close contest between physician Jill Stein and actor/comedian Rosanne Barr.  We generally do not make endorsements in a contested Green Party primary, but we hosted a presidential debate on May 12.  You can watch the debate below and decide for yourself!

 

 

 

Congress, CD8 - Barry Hermanson (Green Party).

Barry Hermanson is a long-time Green activist, who is perhaps best known for his work on the Living Wage Coalition, and for co-authoring San Francisco's minimum wage ordinance. As a result of this successful ballot initiative, we now have the highest minimum wage of any big city in the US. Barry has recently been actively campaigning for Medicare for All, and for a huge decrease in US military spending (starting with an end to our foreign wars and occupations).

 

The top two finishers in the June election will be the only candidates on the ballot this November.  Let's vote to have Barry face off against Nancy Pelosi on issues like jobs, immigration, medical cannabis, taxes, and public education, rather than some Republican!
