Latest poll from the Bay Area Council…
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.”
Supervisor Jane Kim: She makes a great Lucy (to our Charlie Brown)

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
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
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…)
