"Big bucks pour in to
oppose soda tax. Real estate, turf issues also rake in the cash."
"While the soda tax opposition attracted
the biggest bucks,
it’s certainly not the only race with some money left to spend. Proponents of
artificial-turf soccer fields — namely, the Fisher family of Gap clothing fame
— have poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into supporting Proposition I,
which would allow turf soccer fields and lighting at the Beach Chalet soccer
fields in Golden Gate Park, and defeating Proposition H, which would ban
synthetic turf and lighting. If both measures pass, the one with more votes
John, Robert and William Fisher each
cut $60,000 checks in the
first few weeks of October, bringing their combined contributions to $586,000
In all, the
on I, No on H campaign has raised nearly $900,000, with almost $260,000
of it coming in the first few weeks of October. As of Oct. 18, the campaign
still had $293,000 in cash to spend.
The other side, which is mostly funded

from San Francisco residents, has $18,000 in the bank — it raised $10,000 in
the first weeks of the month, for a total of $85,000."

BOS and RPD have put a strange and confusing counter-measure Prop "I" on the
The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department
is so worried about
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

YES ON H and NO ON I.
