DCCC (San Francisco Democratic Party) is the important election in the June 7 Primary. Be sure to vote June 7 for DCCC candidates on the Progressive slates, and replace the pro-real-estate majority with a progressive majority.

— The November General Election: Progressive control of the Board of Supervisors
Equally important is the composition of the Board of Supervisors. Currently this body has a 6–5 majority of Progressives but three of these will term out in January. To keep the important progressive majority in the BoS we need to support three candidates who are running for the open seats in the Nov 8 election:
Sandra Fewer (District 1) — Sandy had mobilization events last weekend assisted by a strong team of volunteers. Definitely a great group to work with, and Sandy is an impressive candidate.
Hillary Ronen (District 9) — Hillary’s campaign had mobilization events last weekend as well. Be sure to get to one of these events in Bernal Heights and Outer Mission to support her difficult but definitely winnable run.
Kim Alvarenga (District 11) — Kim has strong supporters, a well-organized campaign staff, and she is an exciting orator with great energy and ideas.
Dean Preston (District 5) — Dean is an exciting orator and has been engaged in a neighborhood-by-neighborhood ground game for the past few years, even before he began his Supervisor campaign. He’s in a tough contest against an incumbent Supervisor. The residents of District 5 have an opportunity to elect a progressive housing advocate who knows the territory intimately and who will greatly improve the lives of his constituents.
Even if you don’t vote in these districts consider supporting their campaigns.
— Busy Weekends for Supervisor candidates
Each weekend there are events and mobilizations for progressive supervisor candidates — see “Upcoming events” below. Attend one or more of these to see first-hand the amazingly strong progressive field running for District Supervisors.
