City Hall: Gordon Mar

And finally, I also want to thank the voters of District 4 and Citywide — with all the ballots counted, Proposition G, Public Health Emergency Leave, has passed in a landslide, with more than 64% of voters supporting it. It won in every district in the City, and nearly every precinct. 

‘Then and Now’: Stanyan and McAllister Streets

This view looking north on Stanyan Street at McAllister Street shows the Odd Fellows Cemetery in the distance. Located in the undeveloped Outside Lands, the cemetery was legally deeded to the Odd Fellows Organization and officially opened in November 1865. Bordered by Geary Boulevard, Turk Street, Parker Avenue and Arguello Boulevard, the cemetery consisted of approximately 30 acres. On March 26, 1900, the City passed an ordinance prohibiting burials within the city limits. From 1929 to 1935, the bodies were moved to Greenlawn Cemetery in Colma, just south of San Francisco. Photo taken on Dec. 12, 1927.

Assembly: Phil Ting

Tacking on hefty fines or taking away a person’s vehicle registration is not how we should treat hardworking Californians. When agencies make decisions that have unfair consequences for some, it’s up to them to ensure that those most negatively impacted are treated justly.
