SAN FRANCISCO VOTERS SEND A MESSAGE TO CITY HALL
With city officials finalizing the November 2022 San Francisco election, the election results made it clear that San Francisco voters wanted to shake up city government. Voters shifted the power on the Board of Supervisors by electing two new moderate members to four-year terms, decided to keep a more hard-line approach to crime by retaining Brooke Jenkins as District Attorney, and focused on improving student achievement by keeping two of the mayoral appointees on the school board. These results demonstrate that voters want elected officials who value pragmatism over ideology and a government that works well and solves the City’s problems.
SENATOR SCOTT WIENER’S VISION FOR SAN FRANCISCO
sf.citi hosted the final discussion of our 2022 Lunch and Learn series with State Senator Scott Wiener. We were joined by sf.citi members Comcast, Cruise, Goodcover, Google, Intuit, Meta, Microsoft, Okta, and more.
In his discussion with sf.citi members, the Senator assessed the November election results and gave an overview of what’s ahead for his office. He thought that the election provided a mixed bag of outcomes, but overall, he felt that the voters’ decisions on most elected officials and measures moved the City in the right direction. The Senator also outlined various issues his office plans to prioritize in 2022, including but not limited to continuing his progress on housing legislation, emphasizing climate change solutions, and expanding criminal justice reform.
