April 12 at HANC: June Ballot Propositions -Part One-

  • PDF

HANC's monthly (except August) general membership meeting is usually held downstairs at the Park Branch Library, 1833 Page Street (between Cole and Shrader) on the second Thursday of the month, beginning at 7 pm.  Our meetinngs are open to the public and free to attend.

Election Day for this year’s Primary Election is June 5, but early voting begins on May 7. Our April and May general meetings will provide information on some of the local ballot measures.

 

 

We will begin with Proposition F, which HANC has endorsed. Prop F, if passed, will require San Francisco to provide a free attorney for any San Francisco resident who receives an eviction notice. Aditi Sherikar, an activist and attorney associated with the campaign, has been invited to give us an overview and to respond to any questions.

Proposition G, if passed, will impose a parcel tax of $298 per parcel (with some exemptions) per year for the next 20 years, and require that the funds collected be transferred to the San Francisco Unified School District, for specific uses outlined in the measure. We have invited Mark Sanchez, a Commissioner with the San Francisco Board of Education, to provide us with further information on this measure.

Proposition H is a measure propounded by the Police Officer’s Association. If passed, it would authorize the San Francisco Police Department to purchase a “Conductive Energy Device,” commonly known as a Taser, for every officer, and would require the City to include a line item in each budget to maintain and implement the program. Aditi Sherikar (who will also be speaking about Prop F) will explain why she opposes this measure, and why we should also oppose it.

Please join us on Thursday, April 12, beginning at 7 pm at the Park Branch Library, 1833 Page Street, for information you won’t find anywhere else.
