SB 35 was signed into law
Along with a slew of other bills to force more dense development and higher real estate values on all the cities in the state, raising rents and driving more people into poverty. The best our Governor can come up with is a steep gas tax and suggestions of a water tax and more bonds to cover a high-speed rail and new water tunnels to feed the southern farmers. The rail and tunnel projects are meeting with strong resistance.

Adopt a Pothole. Join the national movement. Simply complaining about the potholes doesn’t work. Adopt a pothole and make it your mission to get it fixed. Take a picture. Make note of the address. File a report on it with DPW using the Mayor’s 311 complaint system. You may also call 311 and speak to an operator but this can be time-consuming. It is easier to file a complaint online http://sf311.org to get it entered into the record. All feedback is linked to the 311 system and offers you a referral number, which you can use to check on the status of your pothole. Use that system and report back on your progress.
