Talk to Your Supervisors or Council Members


This is the link to your San Francisco Board of Supervisors. The supervisors are who we elected to represent us. They are occupying the offices that are borrowed from us. Do not be a silent majority. We are powerful (!) as Michael Pollen said. We vote with how we shop, how we spend our money. Write to them! The non-profits have full-time, part-time staff and an army of volunteers who are totally sold to their simple sound bites. They spend all their time talking and talking to our leaders. If all they hear is from a vocal minority, that is what they will follow.

Remember that in a democratic country, the governance is: of the people, by the people, for the people. And we re the greatest democratic country in the world.

Obama said "Yes. We can."
Yes,  we can  - if we stay steadfast and don't give up or resigned to our "fate".

And I say A decent man can be pro-business, pro-consumer, pro-environment. A decent man has the balanced view between growth and conservation.

For folks in other cities, google "board of supervisors + your county" or "City of + your city". Look for "City Council / city government / council members" under "contact us" page.
