We have not given out our two Libertarian Party of San Francisco awards for a while. We find it difficult to pick one recipient for our “Nanny of the Month” award among so many candidates. Our “Sensible Suggestion” award is rare. The last one went to Supervisor Mark Farrell in December 2012 for his support of entrepreneurial food truck vendors.
The Housing Crisis and the City’s Miracle Workers:
Although City planners have generated a great many ideas and goals within the past three years or so, they do not seem to be developing a cohesive and credible plan. One day they speak of the urgent need for affordable housing, below-market-rate units, or safeguards against evictions. The next day they promote high-end ecodistricts, transfer of capitalization and control of public housing to the private sector, and high density areas catering to higher-income workers.
Either the designers of the drastic regional upheaval, commonly known as “Plan Bay Area” or “One Bay Area,” thought they could work around the fact that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, of they did not connect this physical law with human behavior, as most common-sense folks do.
Voting is a right written in our Constitution, but as all the other rights, never to be taken for granted: "The price of liberty is eternal vigilance." We urge you to show up, vote, and be counted! Your voting place is shown on your voter handbook; or you can call the San Francisco Department of Elections at (415) 554-4375 for assistance.

The Libertarian Party of San Francisco makes the following recommendations:

THE NOVEMBER 5TH ELECTIONS AND OUR LIBERTARIAN AIM
The Libertarian Party of San Francisco has upheld its record of recommending the exact opposite of what voters passed in any given election, and we are not at all disheartened! Our aim is to shrink government to a constitutional and sustainable size, while politicians' aim is to sink as much resources as necessary to convince voters to make government grow. We intend to persevere in our aim.
