It’s on!!!!!!!!!

12Sep07

First of all: Article today in the Bay Gardian

Finally a piece of good press. The sheep will likely follow, reporters are dumb farm animals.

I did my first public speaking to the sunset Democrat club last night, asking for an endorsement. Quinten Meckie was also there, and did the dog and pony show with the gloom and doom progressive thing like nobodys business. Of course, the old ladys can’t hear anyone…. but that’s the comdey part. I enjoyed it. It was very wholesome…

We have our slogans down to a few runners up:

Campaign artist
First choice for second place
Pretend your vote counts
IRV means never having to say your sorry
Fail to win
Am I elected yet?

Today I find out if we qualify for matching funds. If our inital filing is rejected, we will have 5 days to re-file. We know that we will get shot down this first time, but think that we will only be off by some small amount and it won’t be because we don’t have the money part, it’s the paperwork part. They must have proof that the people live in SF. So I’m not totally sure how they determine that, but we’re gonna find out in 2 hours.

    the folks at shaping sf/counterpulse aren’t the doom and gloom variety progressives and they usually have a pretty sharp grasp on who and what has our city wearing the cement shoes …

    From city arts entitlements to grantmaking by private foundations, big money is spent on the arts in San Francisco.

With San San Wong (SF Arts Commission), John Killacky (SF Foundation), Frances Phillips (Walter & Elise Haas Sr. Foundation), Jessica Robinson (CounterPULSE), Colleen Marlow (Art Head), Krissy Keefer (Dance Mission)
