Columnist CW Nevius is once writing on behalf of RPD. Read his column and write letters to the editor.
Not only does Mr. Nevius wants to "bury the debate" and your opinions on the project, but also
the City wants to stifle your input on other RPD projects! Read our response to Mr. Nevius:
wants to bury the debate over the imminent destruction of the western end of Golden
Gate Park. The Rec and Park Department
would like to bury any debate over what happens in all of our parks. That is
why Rec and Park has placed Prop
"I" on the November ballot.
Prop "I" is
Trojan Horse legislation. Disguised as a
feel-good measure that provides recreational facilities for children, in
reality it contains language that may result in transferring effective control
over major decisions about your parkland to the Recreation and Park Department
"I". Read the ballot
arguments. Vote Yes on H and No on
Golden Gate Park and protect your voice in deciding what happens to your park.

your ballot initiative succeeding, that they have persuaded the SF Board of
Supervisors to put a misleading counter-measure on the November ballot.
This will be a difficult campaign, because
we have to communicate to the public YES ON H and NO ON I.
addition, the City Fields Foundation is part of the RPD ballot campaign. CFF has access to enormous amounts of money
-- expect TV ads to flood the airwaves.
This is where you come in - start talking
to your friends and neighbors now. Inform them of the two initiatives, and why it is so important that they vote
YES ON H and NO ON I.
