Are we having an election?

After plowing through the weighty Sunday newspapers, readers might have been confused about which year this is. There is plenty of news about elections in 2008, but we’re not there yet, are we? What about the election that’s coming up next month? Does San Francisco really have to go to the polls again? The answer is yes, but if you still don’t know which offices we are filling, or who is running, you’re not alone. This is a time when the League shows its value by letting citizens learn about the candidates and ballot measures they are asked to decide about. On Tuesday, October 9, potential voters will have a rare chance to see the two candidates for Sheriff answer questions from the community and also hear an interview with District Attorney Kamela Harris, who is running unopposed. The forum will be held at the San Francisco Public Library at 100 Larkin Street at 6:00 PM. If you can’t make that that event, you’ll be able to view reruns on SFGov TV later this month. We’ll keep you posted on the schedule for that, so visit www.sfvotes.org frequently over the next few weeks.
