F Newsom! This thug stole the mayoral election (count) from Gonzales, whom more people voted for, which would have meant a huge U.S. city under a Green party banner-- thoroughly unacceptable of an outcome for the power-drunk Democrat machine. The censorship of the Greens has since cranked up quite a bit, featuring their use of the term "green" in marketing everywhere to dilute the real deal.. just in case the average Joe Shmoe cable-tv dolt ever comes across the words "Green Party", it'll just be that forgettable color again.
He has no chance of losing anyway, the office is a joke at any rate, so do use your vote to protest this developer-connected bigwig being in politics generally.. are there true-left Party options, or some decent write-ins? I would hope SFBG would be anti-establishment enough to inform us.

Michael Kilian, candidate for city auditor, reported to the Oakland Public Ethics Commission that Building Services Inspection Services Manager Antoinette Holloway-Renwick failed to report a close familial relationship with Arthur Young, who owns Arthur Young Debris Removal Service, the City's number one blight abatement contractor.

Michael Kilian, candidate for city auditor, reported to the Oakland Public Ethics Commission that Building Services Inspection Services Manager Antoinette Holloway-Renwick failed to report a close familial relationship with Arthur Young, who owns Arthur Young Debris Removal Service, the City's number one blight abatement contractor.
Kilian's complaint alleges that this relationship costs the City millions of dollars a year because of the preferential treatment Young receives from Holloway-Renwick. Building Services records, as well as a deposition of Holloway-Renwick in an unrelated lawsuit, reveal that Holloway-Renwick was directly responsible for both contract and invoice approval for Arthur Young Debris Removal Service. The amount of those contracts exceeds $4 million since 2007.

A 2007 audit of Public Works contract bidding process showed that Arthur Young Debris Removal Service was the number one Public Works contractor at that time.

Courtney Ruby's hiring-practices audit, dated October 21, 2009, does not include Holloway-Renwick's relationship with Arthur Young.

Holloway-Renwick retired several days after Kilian filed his complaint.

Thank you so much for posting the recommendations on your website.
However, the most difficult thing is voting for Judges! Especially for me in the West County. Will do more research...

Thanks for the guide - very useful. Would appreciate a more condensed guide in the future since this on took 8 pages (read: EIGHT PAGES) to print, and ditto on the San Franciso ballot measures. C'mon guys - how hard is it to post a 1-2 page PDF and save a few trees?

Thanks for the guide - very useful. Next time can you please consider adding a downloadable 1-2 page PDF? This list printed on 8 pages (EIGHT PAGES) as did the SF ballot measures. Cmon guys - let's save a few trees here.

You want us to vote on your lines why not make an easily printable web doc. WTF? If there's one here it's very hidden.

Interesting comments here, and yes as per every year, thank you for being the source of clear (er) voter information every year.

Agreed to also, that more information on the Judges would be helpful. Googling them revealed little except for the person who kept asking on wikepedia, "what political party does so and so belong to?" Usually the best guess was related to who appointed them, Schwarzenegger for example.
I even talked to some people who thought that our votes were just "confirmations" - ?, when really we have the power to determine who is shaping our legal and therefore social system. This is a big deal!
