STOP MUNI CUTBACKS!

Come to City Hall on Tues. Feb. 16 to speak out against the huge MUNI service cuts. A rally and press conference at 1pm will be followed by the MTA hearing at 2pm.

The MTA has planned huge cuts and increases for MUNI:

• Increase in youth and senior passes from $15 to $30
• Increase in residential parking permits by $20
• Cuts to OWL services
• Cuts to service of MUNI lines: 1,5,6,8X,BX,8AX,9,9L,14,14L 14X,16X,22,28,30,45,47,49,71,71L,88,2,3,12,18, 19,21,23,24,27,29,31,33,43,44,54,108,F,J,K,T,L,M,N...
• Extra “premium” cost for cable cars
• Extra “premium” cost for express buses

Even if the cuts are approved, next years’ deficit amounts to $52.7 million! This means more cuts and hikes will be planned even after these new ones are implemented. TAX THE RICH!

We demand that the city:

• Implement a progressive tax on incomes over $200,000 to fund public services.
• Cap city administrator and manager salaries at $100,000. Today, 10,000 people employed by the city make more than $100,000 a year!
• Collect taxes amounting to over $59 million owed by developers, landlords, and big business NOW!
• Stop the SFPD and other agencies from using MTA funds.

TUES. FEB. 16, 1PM
steps of SF City Hall, Polk and Grove Sts.

¡BASTA DE RECORTES A MUNI!

Ven a la Alcaldía el martes, 16 de febrero para alzar su voz contra los recortes masivos de MUNI. Un mitin y conferencia de prensa a la 1pm será procedido por una junta del MTA a las 2pm.

El MTA a planeado recortes masivos y incrementos para MUNI:

• Incrementar los pases de jóvenes y ancianos de $15 a $30
• Incrementar permisos residenciales por $20
• Recortes a servicios de noche “OWL”
• Recortar servicio a líneas de MUNI: 1,5,6,8X,BX,8AX,9,
9L,14,14L,14X,16X,22,28,30,45,47,49,71,71L,88,2,3, 12,18 19
21,23,24,27,29,31,33,43,44,54,108,F,J,K,T,L,M,N...
• Costos “de primera” extra para los “cable cars”
• Costos “de primera” extra para los autobuses “express”

¡Aunque estos sean aprobados, el déficit del siguiente año es $52.7 millones! Esto significa mas recortes y aumentos están siendo planeados después de que estos sean implementados. ¡Cobren a los Ricos!

Demandamos que la ciudad:

• Implemente un impuesto progresivo a todos los ingresos arriba de $200,000 para financiar los servicios públicos.
• Limitar salarios de directores y administradores municipales a $100,000. ¡Actualmente 10,000 empleados municipales hacen más de $100,000 por año!
•¡Colectar impuestos que aumentan a mas de $59 millones debidos por urbanizadores, propietarios, y negocios grandes AHORA!
• Basta de que el SFPD y otras agencias usen fondos del MTA

MARTES, 16 DE FEB., 1PM
Frente a la alcaldía, Calles Polk y Grove
