    Join GWPNA May 3rd - Prep for the June Elections

    I’m really excited to announce that the Greater West Portal Neighborhood Association (GWPNA) is gearing up to help you understand the issues in the coming June and November elections. Both San Francisco and all of California face serious issues, starting with huge budget deficits, but certainly not ending there. It’s likely we’ll be asked to vote in both City and State elections this June, in order to address some of these issues. Which ones are still up in the air, but by May 3rd we’ll have a pretty good idea of what will be on the June ballot. That’s why GWPNA has invited the League of Women Voters of San Francisco to join us at our May 3rd meeting to discuss the June ballot. Our meeting is open to the public and attendance is free.

    The League of Women Voters in SF is a nonpartisan, multi-issue organization that encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government. Their experts research the issues and can explain them in simple terms that we can all understand.
     
    But that’s not all. GWPNA is also reaching out to the candidates running for Mayor of San Francisco this November. We’ll be having them join us to talk about their qualifications and goals between now and October. It’ll certainly make for some exciting meetings! So come join your neighbors and meet the candidates. We currently have the following lineup, but check our web site for updates and changes.
     
    • May 3: Dennis Herrera and Tony Hall &
      the League of Women Voters
    • June 7: Michaela Alioto-Pier and Phil Ting
    • Sept 6: David Chiu and Joana Rees
    • Oct 4: Bevan Dufty
    Additionally, GWPNA is partnering with several other neighborhood organizations under the leadership of the West of Twin Peaks Central Council, to hold a large-scale Mayoral candidates forum in September. The details of that will be published as they emerge, but it promises to be another don’t-miss event!
