Dear Supervisor Kim…

dearsupervisorkim

Dear Supervisor Kim,
In the spirit of civic transparency, could you verify for us that the Airbnb rentals you stayed at did not displace a previous resident, through eviction, or landlord intimidation, or some other means?

ps: I hope you enjoyed your big musical showcase. We couldn’t make it because I think that was the weekend our new landlord tried to re-write our rent-controlled lease of 22 years–we had to spend that weekend getting legal advice. It was very stressful.

Supervisor Jane Kim, at SF BOS Land Use and Economic Development hearing, 9-29-2014:

“And, of course, I’ve also been an Airbnb user, not here in San Francisco, but I’ve used it in other cities, and it’s been a great way to vacation with groups of friends, when it’s hard to get multiple hotel rooms, but you’re going in large groups.
I’ve certainly done it for weddings, and for big musical showcases.”

SAN FRANCISCO GUIDE TO RECALL ELECTIONS

see Document Link

II. WHO MAY BE SUBJECT TO RECALL?
San Francisco Charter § 14.103, California Elections Code § 11007
Under the San Francisco Charter, the following local officials may be subject to a recall:
 Any elected official of the City and County
 The City Administrator
 The Controller
 Any member of the Airport Commission
 Any member of the governing board of the Unified School District
 Any member of the governing board of the Community College District
 Any member of the Ethics Commission.
 Any member of the Public Utilities Commission.
However, no recall petition may be initiated with respect to an officer who has held office
for less than six months or who has had a recall election determined in his or her favor within the
last six months. In addition, an officer whose term ends within six months or less may not be
recalled.

The first stumbling block is…

For this reason, a petition to recall an elected official may not call for a replacement election. Instead, the recall petition should include a request that the Mayor or the Board of Supervisors appoint a person to fill the vacancy created by the recall, if it is successful.

Recall Mayor Ed Lee, and our Board of Bad Supervisors will appoint Ron Conway to mayor.
Recall some bad supervisors, and Ed Lee will replace them with clones.

So we need a strategy.

1. Recall Mayor Ed Lee
This might put ‘the fear of god’ into some of the supervisors. No-one will want to be next, so some might veer toward a better, popular, choice for us for mayor.

2. Recall David Chiu
If he wins (I hope not) the Assembly seat this will be moot? If not, he’s got to go.
(we can work on recalling him from the Assembly later on)

3. Ask Jane Kim if she wants to be next
One more “I’m with you all the way, up to when I vote–then I’m against you” incident, and out she goes. She talks the talk, but she votes out of the other side of her mouth. This has to end, one way or another.

4. ??? (mulling it over…)

(and here’s a link to the state procedure rules for recalling local elected officials)

Citizenfour at Landmark Theatres

Citizenfour at Landmark Theatres

Citizenfour at Landmark Theatres.

In January 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras was in the process of constructing a film about abuses of national security in post-9/11 America when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as “citizen four,” who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and reporter Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. Poitras is a masterful storyteller: she compresses the many days of questioning, waiting, confirming, watching the world’s reaction and agonizing over the next move, into both a great character study of Snowden and a narrative that will leave you on the edge of your seat as it inexorably moves toward its conclusion.
