2011 San Francisco Election: Wins & Losses

The San Francisco League is 100% volunteer-based, and this is the 13th straight election where we've made a Pissed Off Voter Guide. Our endorsement is coveted by progressive candidates, and wherever we go, people say things like, "I use this every time!" or "I've been waiting for this--thank you!" It feels great to know we're helping folks figure out our crazy ranked choice voting system and SO many confusing propositions.

We distributed 60,000 guides this year. Check out the Highlights.

Voter Guide Release Party!!

Voter Guide Release Party!!

The fuse. Is. Lit.

And on next thursday, this badass voter guide bomb is gonna go off and blanket our fair city with a blast of voter guides. A swirling scintillate of voter guides. Voter guides like confetti. Voter guides like locusts. Voter guides like rain.

JOIN US!!
 
League Of Pissed Off Voters 2011 Voter Guide Release Party
The Buck
1655 Market Street at Page
6-10pm, Thursday, Oct. 6th

We’ll be celebrating the new guide, we’ll be reading and hootin’ and hollerin’, we’ll be toasting our special endorsed electeds (some of whom will be there in person to drink with us). We’ll be planning pub crawls and event assaults and park frolics and day of the dead processionals and hot air balloon drops: all the ways we’ll be dolloping out glowing orange drops of voter education over the next six weeks. And of course, the most important item on the night’s agenda: we will be serving up fresh hot stacks of voter guides. Take a handful, take a bundle, take a box. We’re excited, can you tell?

So bring your friends. Bring your colleagues, bring your neighbors, bring your elderly relatives. Bring your polyamorous triad lifepartners. Bring your seeing eye dog, cause that’s the only kind of dog that’ll be getting into the buck. Bring everyone you’ve ever wanted to press-gang into the league. Bring everyone, cause we’ve got SIXTY THOUSAND of these pretty-printed progressive firecrackers and we are rarin’ to go.

See you there.

Stop the AT&T Boxes!

Here's a little piece--click the link to read more of our latest op ed in the SF Bay Guardian!

Why do small cafes have to pay hundreds of dollars in permit fees to put two piddly tables outside their shops, while AT&T gets a blanket "categorical exemption" for almost no money to nail down ugly boxes that will block the sidewalk and attract graffiti?  (Hmm, we can probably think of some choice graffiti actually…)


 

Happy Hour with the League 5/10!

Happy Hour with the League 5/10!

 We're getting together for another mellow happy hour at Thieves Tavern (14th & Guerrero, in the north Mission) to hang out and talk about what's happening around San Francisco. If you've ever wanted to get involved with the League, or just wondered who who puts together the Pissed Off Voter Guide, come on down and have a drink with us.

Thieves will have a drink special for us, and we'll dip into our petty cash to spring for some food.

The League's Message to the Board of Supers

Hey San Francisco--have you been following local politics this week? It's been NUTS! Looks like we're going to have a new mayor, current City Administrator Edwin Lee. We wrote this open letter to our friends on the Board of Supervisors in hopes that we'll at least get a little bit of the change we'd like to see around here.

Dear Supervisors Avalos, Chiu, Campos, Kim and Mar...

Endorsement Party 4/30/10

Endorsement Party 4/30/10

Guess what--it's election time again! On the June 8th ballot we'll see protections for renters in SF, Gavin for Lieutenant Governor, a DCCC race that is way more important than it sounds, and what might be PG&E's dirtiest prop yet. Our voter guide is more important than ever, and young and/or pissed off voters across the city are waiting to see what we'll recommend.

Join us for the endorsement party tomorrow, where the League's Political Education and Action Committee will present their recommendations, and eligible members will vote to determine what will go in our 12th Pissed Off Voter Guide. And we'll be on the radio!

SF League Endorsement Party

March 4th Day of Action for Public Education in CA

March 4th Day of Action for Public Education in CA

MARCH FORTH!
Every year publicly-funded education continues to be dragged kicking and screaming to the chopping block.  What should be one of the most important cornerstones in a strong democratic foundation has literally been defunded to death.  And with a crumbling foundation, so goes the rest of the house.  You know the drill: less schools=less jobs=more prisons.  The League of Young Voters is taking action!
