The Future of San Francisco

Posted by Lil Miss Hot Mess on September 23, 2011

I am OUTRAGED.  Between the execution of Troy Davis last night (with this cherry on top today) and the suicide of 14 year old Jamey Rodemeyer, it’s all I can do not to cry my eyes out.  I’ve been feeling helpless and can’t fathom how innocent people can be killed like this and what that says about our country.  I can’t help asking myself, Why Didn’t Anybody Stop This?

I was going to write a cute and cheeky blog post about the Homo Homecoming fundraiser I’m putting on for John Avalos next Saturday. But instead I’m about to get serious about why I’m supporting him. After years of Bush and Arnold and Gavin (and all of them really), I want someone in power who’s watching out for us. I want someone in City Hall who’s a real person, who’s part of the community, and who’s willing to put their ego aside to fight. I want someone who isn’t going to sell our city to the highest bidder, because I want my friends and the freaks and the families to stay.  I want somebody who will help stop some of this madness.  I don’t normally put any faith in elections, but I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a viable candidate who gets it and who can hold it down with very few compromises.  And that’s why I’m putting my time, energy, and money behind John Avalos.

So please, please, please do 2 things for me right this minute:


2. Invite friends + colleagues by email, Facebook, Twitter, or talking to them!

And for the haters: Do I think that having John Avalos as mayor will solve all the city’s problems?  Hell no.  But I think he’ll be a thoughtful advocate who will help shape the right conversations and shake up the way things happen in this city.  The rest will be up to us.

If you want to get more involved in the Avalos campaign, talk to me or take a look at the campaign website.


UPDATE: Just wanted to add a link to the sweet write-up we got in the SFBG (for posterity).

Thanks to Michael for taking this video on his phone – it’s just a teaser with some footage cut out in the middle (sorry!).  Hopefully I’ll get the real deal soon!

For those who don’t know, the inspiration for this number is after the jump:
