WELCOME TO THE NEW BAY GUARDIAN WEBSITE

3
Welcome, Bay Guardian readers, to the new SFBG.com! Last October, the former editors and publishers of the San Francisco Bay Guardian regained control of the 50-year-old alternative weekly paper and website. We did this with the help of our readers and outside contributors. The Bay Guardian now belongs to the San Francisco Center for Newspaper Preservation, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization that...

Bay Guardian endorsements for the Democratic County Central Committee

5
Here are the Bay Guardian endorsements for Democratic County Central Committee, 2016. The race for Democratic County Central Committee, often a second thought on the June ballot, is now a big deal, a proxy for the defining struggle to save what’s left of San Francisco from corporate power and real-estate greed. The DCCC sets policy for the local party. A lot...

We don’t have the bandwidth to do for our friends across the Bay the detailed work we did in San Francisco, so we aren’t going to weigh in on every single race and every single ballot measure. That wouldn’t be fair to anyone. But we want to make a few key endorsements – and they reflect our longstanding efforts to...

Putting tenants first in the Democratic Party

0
“That’s Sacramento” the old timers say, as they shake their heads. For the entire time that I’ve worked on housing justice in San Francisco, housing activists have told me about about our inability, year after year, decade after decade to defeat the Ellis Act and Costa Hawkins, two laws that were written for and by the real estate industry...

ENDORSEMENTS for California Democratic Party delegates

0
The California Democratic Party has long been dominated by insiders, politicians linked to big campaign donors – and that has prevented the party from going in a truly progressive direction. But that’s changing as a new generation of activists are running for statewide delegate positions. It’s going to be a process: All of the statewide elected officials (all Democrats) hold...

VOTE Jan 8 to reform the Democratic Party!

0
The Democratic Party controls California – and yet, this deep-blue state still suffers under Prop 13, still allows landlords to control the political agenda (at the cost of thousands of evictions and a homeless epidemic), and is going to struggle to create an effective response to Donald Trump.

The agenda that the late...
