Election day- The Argonaut Recommends:

November 3, 2009 San Francisco Municipal Election

City Attorney

Re-Elect Dennis Herrera


Jose Cisneros

Proposition A

Budgeting Process Revisions


This is yet another City Hall barn-door sham that does nothing to rein the horse of galloping civic budget deficits. There is also the usual screwing around with the small print – the Firefighters and the craft unions will never forgive Supervisor David Chiu whom they blame for sneaking in a arbitration-deadline provision that will make negotiating more of a pain for them.

Proposition B

Additional Aides for Supervisors


Costs and increasing the size of government aside, the last thing we need is more Power for the present Board of Supervisors.

Proposition C

Stick Naming Rights


If the city can squeeze a few more needed bucks of out the decaying stadium, squeeze away.

Proposition D

Market Street Revival


This proposition has been ill-served by its titling on the Ballot, which makes it sound like its all about electric signs. Proposition D is a welcome attempt to do something to revitalize the most run-down section of Market Street and return to the classic Mini-Times Square bustling theatre district of last century. This is such a good idea that even the Bay Guardian had to pretzel-twist itself into opposing it on the dubious grounds that it didn’t let the Board of Supervisors in on the action, to which we say Hurrah.

Proposition E

Bans Advertising on Bus Shelters


The anti-commerce mafia is at it again.
