7/9&7/18 SF Tenant Hearings
by Justice
Tuesday Jul 3rd, 2001 7:10 AM
On July 9, 2001 at 2 p.m. at San Francisco City Hall, the Board of Supervisors will be voting to override Willie Brown's veto of McGoldrick's Tenants in Common legislation, which they have supported twice with 8 votes out of 11. On July 18, 2001 at 9:30 a.m., the San Francisco Superior Court will make a decision on Proposition H passed by the voters in November 2000 to limit capital passthroughs to tenants.

The Democratic Party is now on trial as it cannot exist without the support of tenants in San Francisco. That good Democrat, Willie Brown, and 3 Democratic supervisors, Tony Hall, Leland Yee and Gavin Newsom, have declared war on the workingclass of San Francisco. Our response must be to not only demand passage of McGoldrick\'s TIC legislation but also to evict Willie Brown, who sits in office with 40% of the vote plus election fraud and now has only 20% support. That election fraud was committed in the same manner as in the 49er Stadium Swindle illegal election of June 3, 1997. See http://www.brasscheck.com/stadium. His election fraud team includes, but is not limited to, his totally unnecessary press office, his 600 plus special assistants, the Housing Authority, Glide Church, Walden House, TURF, Nation of Islam, A. Philip Randolph Institute, and many others. The election fraud is paid for by the ruling class represented by the Democratic and Republican Central Committees and the Chamber of Commerce, for whom Willie Brown speaks and works. This current election fraud team, a sequel to the Peoples\' Temple of 1975 (see the html \"jonestown\" in the Election Fraud website above), has been operating from and including Brown\'s 1995 \"election\" in every election.

Please call and write the three \"swing\" votes below, Mark Leno, Sophie Maxwell and Gerardo Sandoval and attend both hearings if you can.

On Friday, June 29, Mayor Brown vetoed the TIC legislation that would have provided eviction protections for renters. On Monday, July 9, 2001, at 1 PM, we will serve an eviction notice on Mayor Willie Brown for \"Creating a Nuisance.\"

Under Mayor Willie Brown, San Francisco has faced the worst housing crisis since the 1906 earthquake. Brown\'s legacy will be a legacy of eviction and displacement. Brown\'s administration stood by and did nothing while tenants were being evicted at intolerable rates, and then rubber-stamped unaffordable housing developments that further disrupted our communities.

Join us on Monday to serve the eviction notice on the Mayor. We will gather on steps for brief rally and then go upstairs to the Mayor\'s office. Next we will go to the Board of Supervisor\'s meeting to see how the Supervisors vote.

Before Monday, we need people to call the Supervisors to urge them to override the Mayor\'s veto.
