Ed Jew to City Attorney: Stop dragging feet -- Produce the Records

[ Attachment content not displayed ]

Running for office like that I hope you don't call
yourself a libertarian as that will make the LP look
even more eccentric and futile. It's crazy ideas like
this that scare mainstream voters into casting a vote
for a libertarian cause they think we are all nuts.

I don't know much about Ed Jew or the SF council, but
if you are to be living in the district you are
representing that follow the rules. Sometimes that's
just what you have to do. This rule sucks, but it's
not like the rule forcing me to not smoke pot and
such.

Brian you correct!Also, Jew is not one to play
(their) ball. So he's the
first politician I've ever heard of to have their
privatcy violated by
having his water bill checked. You have to have
water to serve???Did you
know that you can be homeless and vote and run for
office. When I run
again I will do so as homeless ans as required only
state the cross

  It strikes me that "residency" laws are
increasingly
  absurd.

  We live in a global economy now -- one where an
  individual can move at the drop of a hat to
anywhere
  in the world. The luddites in San Francisco who
have
  lived there for 40 years and complain about
  "carpetbaggers" likely describe themselves as
  "progressive," but they have no clue about
progress
  (as usual).

  The reality is that many people are more invested
in
  the community in which they work than the one in
which
  they live. Further, that community is often more
  static than where one lives for some people -- for
  instance, I will hub from San Francisco in my
current
  job on many projects even if my residency was to
  change to San Jose, St. Louis or Sao Paolo.

  If someone who spends a lot of time out of
district
  can vote via absentee ballot, why can't he run for
  office in the district within which he votes?

  And finally, a lot of the partisan hacks going
after
  Jew are shouting the "he should follow the law! He
  shouldn't challenge it by potentially breaking
it."
  They should tread carefully, since many of them
also
  break unjust laws regularly -- including the ban
on
  illegal drug use and the ban on assisting illegal
  immigrants -- and should hope that their words
don't
  come back to haunt them in a courtroom.

  Cheers,

  Brian
