We're having an election for Supervisor on Tuesday! The incumbent supervisor is Eric Mar, who is famous for making San Francisco a national laughingstock via his successful initiative to ban McDonald's from putting toys in Happy Meals. That was stupid, so I'm not voting for him.
If you live in SF (and maybe other places in the World too, I don't know) you know that around campaign time, you get a METRIC SHITLOAD of campaign flyers shoved under your door and attached to your doorknob or whatever you have. If you're a sane person, these all go straight into the recycling. They're like getting the Yellow Pages one page at a time. Useless.
So in an effort to cut down on this bullshit, I put a sign on my gate that said "PLEASE NO FLYERS." Easy enough, right? End of the Flyer Problem?
No. Not end of the Flyer Problem. Whether out of spite or uncaring, candidates continue to leave me flyers, often attached, as the flyer below, DIRECTLY UNDER THE SIGN THAT SAYS NO FLYERS.
SO NOW DAVID LEE IS OUT TOO.
Phil Ting left one yesterday. I didn't know he was running for anything. Apparently he's running for Assembly. I wasn't aware we were voting for Assembly this time. Now I will be voting for Michael Breyer. He wants to invest in the future! I'm for that. Also, he's the Candidate Who Would Never Leave a Flyer Under a Please No Flyers Sign. I'm a narrow-issue voter and so far he has satisfied my narrow issue.
For Supervisor, I am voting for Sherman D'Silva. So far, Sherman D'Silva has not left any flyers, so that's good. Also, check out Priority #8! "Require garbage provider to provide lock for all cans (to limit removal of recyclables and prevent garbage from spilling into streets." Despite his failure to close his parentheses, I'm swooning. Sherman D'Silva wants to crack down on recycling poachers! Be still my heart. YOU HAVE FOUR DAYS LEFT NOT TO FUCK THIS UP SHERMAN D'SILVA!
Meanwhile, I'm not the only one with campaign literature problems. Apparently London Breed doesn't know her district boundaries. But I do love that name. London Breed. The London Breed sounds like a punk band from 1979. Oi!
