Prop. B opponents take to the streets

Opponents for Proposition B have wasted no time rallying against the pension reform measure slated for the Nov. 2 ballot. The campaign has relied on quirky, high tech tactics to get their message across, but now they are going old-school with their campaign.

This afternoon opponents will hit the streets of the Castro, including the district’s rep Supervisor Bevan Dufty, distributing “No on B” signs, literature and talking to whoever will listen to them about why they think pension reform is bad.

This is what Dufty has to say about it: “San Francisco has been a leader in providing universal health care for all of its citizens, but Proposition B will take health care away from many hardworking families,” he said. “Prop B will also cost The City millions of dollars in federal funding for health care. Prop B is a step backwards and is wrong for San Francisco.”
