SAVE THE ARTS: WRITE YOUR SUPERVISOR NOW!
by Save Local Music
Thursday Oct 26th, 2000 4:02 PM
Support upcoming resolution to provide emergency funding for arts, culture, and community non-profits!
No time to waste! This Monday, October 30, the Board of Supervisors will
vote on an Ammiano-sponsored resolution to provide 1.5 million in emergency
funding for arts, culture and community organizations. The money will go to
non-profits with a two-year history that can show need due to rent
increases. The fund could pay as much as half the rent, as long as the
organization can secure a one-year lease.

If passed, this money is a step toward keeping arts, culture, and community
services alive in San Francisco.

Please write your district's supervisor, any supervisor, all the supervisors to show you support the emergency rent fund. Do it TODAY! The vote is on Monday.

Supervisors in favor:

Tom_Ammiano [at] ci.sf.ca.us
Sue_Bierman [at] ci.sf.ca.us
Mark_Leno [at] ci.sf.ca.us
Leland_Yee [at] ci.sf.ca.us

Supervisors on the brink of voting in favor:

Gavin_Newsom [at] ci.sf.ca.us
Alicia_Becerril [at] ci.sf.ca.us
Michael_Yaki [at] ci.sf.ca.us

All the rest:

Amos_Brown [at] ci.sf.ca.us
Leslie_Katz [at] ci.sf.ca.us
Barbara_Kaufman [at] ci.sf.ca.us
Mabel_Teng [at] ci.sf.ca.us

And, if you can, show up to the Board of Supervisors meeting this Monday (in
costume, if possible):
Monday, October 30
City Hall, 2nd Floor
1:30 pm

For you busy and terminally-harried supporters of arts, here's a cut-and-paste letter.

Dear Supervisor[s] [whomever],

I support the resolution to provide 1.5 million in emergency funding for arts and culture non-profits.
Please vote in favor of this funding on Monday, October 30, 2000. This legislation is an important step toward keeping the arts and culture alive
in San Francisco until a more enduring solution to the space problem can be
enacted.

Yours sincerly,

[your name and affiliation here]
