Quen Be De puts out a misleading campaign postcard (so much for a ‘positive’ campaign promise)

According to De,

When others said “No” to progress, De worked to build consensus on major projects:

• Lewis and Clark Water System (Kermit actually voted FOR the system)

• Phillips to the Falls (Kermit voted for this project also, but did not approve of the ‘middle of the night’ extra funding of the project that actually got Mayor Munson in a lot of hot water.)

• New Events Center (Neither Knudson, or Staggers were sitting on the city council when the Events Center location was picked by the council. Staggers supported an Events Center, a profitable one. He made this very clear during the mayoral campaign.)

• DT Improvements Projects (Not sure what she means by this, but most of the infrastructure projects DT were approved by Staggers. Staggers did not support the facade easement program. And for good reason, it was a handout to DT businesses. I’m all for community development, but like Staggers, I believe the project should have been available to ALL SF businesses not just Downtown businesses.)

• River Greenway (Kermit and councilor Costello voted against this project, not because they were specifically against it but because Munson doubled the price of the project practically overnight without giving an explanation)

Nice try De. Next time do your research. And BTW, my property taxes have gone up every year since I bought my home over 9 years ago. Rates don’t mean anything when my bill is larger every year.

… and the AL has surmised that the best 4 candidates in the election are this former member and the 3 sitting members … not all bad, but it fits the rubber-stamping mentality.

Does any of that surprise you? I think the big upset of the night will be Ysbrand, I think he has a good chance of beating Karsky.

As for the Staggers/Knudson race, neck and neck. You have to keep this in mind though, if Kermit loses, we will forever lose a check and balance against the mayor and the business elite in SF, if not forever, but for a very long time.

Had a “robo” call from De today. She must have a really big campaign chest compared to the others, who I haven’t seen running any ads or making any calls.

I see she is trying to paint Kermit as the ‘misleader’:

Notice KELO let De rant whatever, and KDLT actually gave both side of the story fairly.

Natural enough. KELO, (Sanford) has a horse in the race. KSFY, (Avera) has no horse in the race and no story. Kudo’s to KDLT.
