Forwarding the exchange of e-mails below with Shirley Hansen, who is working on the Yes on D and No on C ballot arguments. She has asked that individuals from our group sign consent forms allowing her to file the arguments with those individual names' as supporters of D and opponents of C. Either Shirley or I would be meeting you (coming to your place of work, home, or whatever best way to meet) to obtain your signature.
Attached and pasted below is the No on C Shirley had ready. She will have Yes on D ready later.
Please remember, this is her argument and she is short on time for getting done all that needs to be done to file on time, so I hope you will choose to pitch in with the argument as is.
Jeff Adachi has acknowledged the e-mail exchange, and has thanked our group in advance for our support on D.
Prop C is a backroom bad deal created by
politicians and labor leaders,
people that got us into this mess!
deal was cut with the highest-paid city employees
expense of the lowest-paid city employees and taxpayers.
created by an insider group of carefully-selected labor union beneficiaries and
christened themselves the “City Family.”
no public transparency into these negotiations,
opportunity for ordinary taxpayers of San Francisco to participate.
saves $400 million less than Prop D over ten years.
ten years that difference escalates – out of sight!
this a solution? Kicking the can down
the road again!
could be used to help our schools, crumbling streets, our basic services.
Then the Mayor sweetened the deal for Safety employees --
A 4% raise,
providing a big SPIKE in their pensions, costing $127 million over ten
backroom deal! Does this sound only too
not all. The Mayor then asked the Board
of Supervisors to act in advance to protect Safety employees from Prop D
pension reforms. Ouch!
provides extravagant subsidies for the City’s highest-paid employees, to be
paid by the lowest-paid, and by taxpayers.
Prop C does NOTHING to solve the City's unfunded
health care debt crisis.
Prop C is
not real pension reform, just another bad deal for the citizens of San
We urge a
NO vote on Prop C.
