Walker, Mandelman, and Kelly for supervisor. No, no, no on B. Yes, yes, yes on 19. Our complete endorsements for San Francisco, state, and national races

Progressive choices: rafael Mandelman in D8, Debra Walker in D6, and Tony Kelly in D10

On every level — federal, state and local — the Nov. 2 election is critical. Californians will decide whether a billionaire with no political experience and a failed business executive with right-wing views should be the next governor and senator. They'll address a long list of major ballot measures. In San Francisco, voters will decide the balance of power on the Board of Supervisors, weigh in on ballot measures that could deeply affect the local budget, and decide whether this city wants to allow a harsh crackdown on the homeless.

Absentee ballots are already in the mail. Vote early, vote often, and vote like your city and state depended on it. We'll publish our Clean Slate clipout guide to take to the polls on October 27. Click below for our endorsements. (East Bay endorsements will be added next week.)

Thanks again for your endorsements. It's always so confusing and time consuming to do the needed research to vote informed - but the SFBG saves me a lot of time as I can just do the opposite of what they suggest and vote as a reasonable responsible adult would.

Thanks again!

You see, I do the same, but the problem arises when there are more that one other opponent. It would be great if the BG indicated who their least favorite candidate was, then I would know who to vote for, the BG's least favorite candidate :-)

I've been recommending NO on every judge on the San Francisco ballot, except Justice Carlos Moreno. It's hard to research judges' political leanings, but you get a pretty good idea by who appointed them. Virtually all were appointed by Republicans. And with Jerry Brown picking their replacements, you really can't go wrong with "NO."

Oh yeah, and Michael Nava over Ulmer, a Schwarznegger Republican who had an election-year conversion to DTS in order to get elected. This kind of a conservative could never get elected in his own right in this city, but the bench is full of them because Republican governors appoint. Ideology matters when judges are ruling on cases, so it's time to reshape the judiciary to look more like this city. Nava for judge.
