The time for police accountability is now!
On Tuesday July 26, 2007, at 10:00 am, the Public Safety Committee (San Francisco, City Hall, Rm 263) is holding a hearing to discuss the MOU between the SF Police Officerâ€™s Association and the City of San Francisco. Why is this important? Because at a time where Mayor Newsom is cutting services that are desperately needed by countless San Franciscans, he is offering the SFPD a 24.5% raise with amounts to a staggering amount of $ 80,000.00. Does the SFPD truly deserve a raise when the violent crime rate is skyrocketing and the SFPD does not seem poised to do much about it?
This is just one of the reasons why you must take time to attend the hearing and to realize the promise of Proposition H. The best way we can do this is for all of you and your friends to take time on Tuesday morning to attend the committee hearing and make your voice heard by the Board of Supervisors so that they can do their job and SEND IT BACK to the Mayor.
If you cannot attend Tuesday's hearing, please take some time to email committee members with "SEND IT BACK!" as the subject line to express your concerns:
