text 11/6/18 Election: Labor’s Gains & Lessons by Housing for All
There were 2 litmus test issues on the ballot, Cal Prop 10 to extend rent control and vacancy control and SF Prop C to house the homeless. The opponents of these 2 crucial measures to put an end to California’s and San Francisco’s housing emergency are the Nazi Trump voters, regardless of which party they claim to belong to, as these are the 2 workingclass propositions. Since Proposition 10 could only get 36% of the vote, it will have to be put on the November 2020 ballot because the housin...

text SF Election Fraud Alert on Prop C by Yes on C to House the Homeless
Less than 2 weeks before election day, we suddenly received an anti-Prop C multi-colored slick mailer from the Democrats' election fraud team led by one of its beneficiaries, Gavin Newsom, about to be installed as Governor, when most of the vote-by-mail voters have voted as we received our vote-by-mail ballots on October 6, 2018.
