Let's put a pragmatic systems-thinker with a background in community-organizing, direct-service work, program development, and organizational development in City Hall to bring balance and equity to our systems, neighbors, and neighborhoods.
How do we do it? If we raise $50,000 in small donations ($100 or less) by San Francisco residents we will get matching $100K in matching funds from the City. That's 500 donations of $100 .. and we are well on our way!
How will the $50K be spent?
$15,000 budget for field organizers/campaign support
$10,000 budget for printing materials/posters/t-shirts by local artists
$10,000 budget for gift certificates at local businesses as stipends for (1) low-income residents who support our voter registration and Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) efforts (Cole Hardware, Rainbow Grocery, etc) and (2) Artists who create artwork for campaign/GOTV materials
$8,000 budget for ads (Facebook, local media/newsletters)
$5,000 budget for technology/online platforms/polling
$2,000 budget for events
How will the $100K in public financing be spent?
Any funds left over after the 2018 campaign can be used towards the 2019 Mayoral Campaign and/or donated to a nonprofit organization. After the election, all donors will be invited to participate in a poll regarding distribution.
