JUDGE TO HEAR LEGAL CHALLENGE TO VOTER WATERFRONT INITIATIVE ON MONDAY

On Monday, March 17, San Francisco Superior Court Judge Marla Miller will hear the legal challenge brought by real estate developers who are attempting to remove the Waterfront Height Limit Right to Vote Initiative from the June ballot.  The case will be heard at 9:30 AM on Monday morning in Courtroom 302 in the SF Superior Courthouse at 400 McAllister Street, San Francisco.  All are welcome.  Thanks to the generous support of dozens of donors we have a strong legal team working hard to win.  But the developers have put on an aggressive case backed by deep pockets, and if they win they will eliminate the ability of the voters to protect our waterfront.  The stakes are high.

CA DEMOCRATIC CHAIR JOHN BURTON ENDORSES YES ON B BUT REAL ESTATE LOBBY GETS SF DEMOCRATIC PARTY LEADERS TO VOTE NO

On the same day Chairman of the California Democratic Party John Burton came out strongly in favor of Prop. B and protecting waterfront height limits, yesterday the elected members of the San Francisco Democratic Party central committee instead bowed to the wishes of powerful developers and voted 13-12 to oppose Prop. B. These are politicians bending to the pressure of powerful developers, and it’s exactly why voters, not politicians at City Hall, need to make height limit decisions on the waterfront and why we need to pass Prop. B.

Here’s the list to remember of the “UNLUCKY 13” elected Democratic Party Committee members who voted with big developers against Prop. B and against voters having a voice in the future of San Francisco’s waterfront:
