Election Slate for November 8, 2022

Dear Friends,

Each election I prepare a slate card for my friends so we can debate how to vote here in San Francisco (and beyond). Here’s what I have so far, based on the ballot I received in the mail, various organizational endorsements, and various discussion with local activists… I’d love your input! (Thanks to Ben, Ruth, and Andy for their input.)

It’s in order as it appears on my ballot.

Election Day is just around the corner on this coming Tuesday… please do vote!

In solidarity,


PS: Life under late-stage corporate-welfare capitalism and billionaire-choose-all “democracy” can be discouraging. Please remember that there are other ways to change society than just the elections.
