Anyone remember our beloved city council member Cathy Murrillo standing arm-in-arm in solidarity with PODER during the gang injunction trial? I do, and when she's up for re-election next time I'll be sure to send her back to the hood.

Why hasn't the Board of Supervisors been keeping this in check? Why is the Sheriff acting so autonomously in acquiring this gear? Why are we and not the local media/journalists/reporters making this investigative inquiries?

I was there as well and loved the show, even more than during their last visit. Wasn't impressed at all by the opening band.

Here's a misconception about Measure P: That it will pass.

Spacey, what's the difference between putting on the shill for Chevron or the water-wasting Ethanol industry that's behind the SF law firm that authored Measure P and created (seemingly out of the blue) the Water Guardians organization?
Why do you look so surprised? Did you honestly think some big SF law firm is altruistically interested in some mythical fracking or non-existent water contamination in some distant county?

Thanks for taking the time to summarize all the facts so eloquently Shan! Even after all the votes, it's amazing how the Mayor and her cabal keep putting up roadblocks. She should be removed from the SBCAG board at the very least, and definitely not considered by the electorate for future higher office (which she clearly aspires to).

Prop 1 is great, and long overdue for the state. We need to revamp our entire water capture, storage and delivery systems, including much-needed additional treatment and recycling of wastewater into depleted groundwater basins. We also need to increase the capacity of existing reservoirs by de-silting them when water levels are low (like now). That's why there's funding for storage in Prop 1.
YES on Prop 1 and 2. It's a no-brainer.

Hey Cody, have you actually read any of the discourse about Measure P? The Indy's endorsement to vote No on P doesn't mean they're down with fracking, of which there is none in the county, and as Nick makes clear in this week's Angry Poole, the county already has tight regulations on any potential new fracking. So, I ask you, Yes on P: Seriously?

Has anyone yet disclosed that Water Guardians are being backed by the Ethanol industry, which wastes more water than any kind of oil extraction does. Plus, it uses potable water, not recycled water like extraction. This whole Measure P thing is a giant scam. I also feel odd being on the side of big oil, but in this case we need to stand against the awful Measure P.
Once it fails (in a week) maybe we can have a legitimate conversation about oil extraction, what it is, how it's done, what the methods are, etc.
As Nick says, the county already has serious control on fracking, so why the hysteria to pass Measure P? Obviously it's to shut down existing oil extraction operations.
(A resounding) No on P.
