Hey politicos, take this summer break to think about what you've done
In the city of St. Francis, elected officials should strive to protect the weak from the strong, not just cast their lots with the winners of the current economic system. That means stronger protections of small businesses from corporate competitors, a more robust commitment to affordable housing than what's on this fall's ballot, transit and cycling improvements that serve the people who need them most, adherence to development standards that limit building height and automobile use, better protections for the two-thirds of city residents who rent their housing, keeping parks and recreation facilities open to all, refusing to let the homeless or poor be harassed or demonized, and generally seeing to the city's business, not the business of big business.
San Francisco once set an example for the rest of the nation to follow — it's time to do so again.
