To her credit, Supervisor Jane Kim attempted to get her state senate opponent Supervisor Scott Wiener to sign a positive pledge, avoiding negative or malicious attacks by the candidates and their surrogates with a focus on issues. Wiener rejected Kim's request to jointly put their names on the pledge.
I was inspired by Kim and reached out to my two opponents for the BART board seat in District 9, asking them to sign a positive pledge. My hubby has voted-by-mail for Jane and I will do the same on November 8. Vote for Jane Kim for state senate and reject the politics of her competitor.
Today's SF Examiner printed a letter from longtime sunshine advocate Patrick Monette-Shaw touching on some of these facts. I'm happy he wrote this and that the paper ran it, if only because it's more attention for the BART race and gives my campaign mainstream media attention.
Vote for zealous Petrelis for BART board! Thanks.
