Election Slate for February 15, 2022

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 an online discussion with local activists… I’d love your input (I’ll post comments people submit to me below)– 

State Assembly Member, District 17: David Campos

School Proposition A: No recall

School Proposition B: No recall

School Proposition C: No recall

Assessor Recorder: as you wish

Happy and Sad Lists

I will keep adding items as they occur to me.

Things that make me happy:

  • Eating breakfast sitting on my sunny front porch
  • Making love / feeling loved / expressing love to someone who adores it
  • An excellent conversation
  • A delicious meal
  • The sense of accomplishment at a task or project well done
  • A cool breeze on a warm day
  • Harvesting food from my garden
  • A just-cleaned home
  • A clean, warm towel
  • Clean bedsheets
  • Myself or someone else growing to their full potential
  • A kind offer of assistance, given or received
  • A heartfelt apology for wrongdoing, given or received
  • Returning home after a journey

Things that make me sad:

  • Leaving a much-loved person or place
  • Being ill
  • Feeling alone
  • Injustice
  • Untimely or unwarranted death
  • The ravages of unbridled welfare capitalism
  • Evictions
  • People who convince themselves they aren’t worthy (unless it’s part of a kinky scene)
  • People who underestimate themselves or others
  • People who can’t see beyond the box they are in
  • Unfairly judging people on personal characteristics such as race, gender identity, sexual orientation, etc.
