More Recall Stuff

It's been nice seeing all the new "No Richmond Recall" signs around after seeing so many "Recall Jake McGoldrick" signs for so long. If I owned the building I live in, I'd definitely put some "No Recall" signs up as well.

I found a great website, which sums up why this recall is so ridiculous:

http://stoprecall.org/

According to the site, the proponents of the effort were about 1000 signatures short of getting the recall on the November ballot, so now they're going to try for the February 2008 ballot.

Looks like one of the main (and only organizational) supporters of the recall is the San Francisco Republican Party, along with a few vocal business owners who don't like Jake's pro-labor/pro-transit policies.

If you live in (or are just visiting) the Richmond, please join me in avoiding businesses with "Recall Jake McGoldrick" signs in their windows. One if these businesses is Tia Margarita on 19th Ave at Clement, which I used to enjoy going to, until I saw the HUGE "Recall Jake McGoldrick" sign on the outside wall of their building. Sufficed to say, I won't be patronizing them any longer.

Hi there- I'm a student journalist writing a story about Geary BRT, and a Google search turned up your blog and your letter to David Heller. I've been talking to people waiting for the bus up and down Geary Blvd., but I'd love to talk to a rider who seems to be informed about the BRT issue- would you mind answering a couple of questions for me by phone or email? You can contact me at elsmith7@sfsu.edu and let me know- I don't know if you'll get this in time, since I see you haven't updated in a while, but anytime before next Thursday (Dec. 13) would be great. Thank you :)
