The Bay View adopts Jeremiah’s Social Justice Voters Guide and urges our readers to VOTE 100% by June 7, 2022. Vote NO on the recall of Chesa Boudin, the nation’s most progressive DA.
by Jeremiah Jeffries
This June 2022 election, as far as politicians go, is a non-competitive, aka lackluster incumbent anointed primary for various local, state and federal offices – with some noteworthy historical exceptions*. However our local propositions and proposed laws are very important. Most of them are about insider politics, balancing accountability and responsibility. They will impact how some of us experience our government on a regular basis and put some needed support and protections in place.
And then there is the ongoing attack on democracy and regular emboldened attempts to buy our elections and exercise political scapegoating through yet another recall. If you vote on nothing else, voting NO on Prop H, the recall of Chesa Boudin, is the best thing you can do toward justice in our elections and democratic system in San Francisco for this election.
