Demand an Independent Investigation to STOP PAY TO PLAY in San Francisco

Over the last four years there have been numerous articles about pay-to-play in City Hall with no real oversight or public pressure for reform.  Pay-to-Play special interests have had unique growing access and influence on decisions in San Francisco. 

The result: huge profits for a few major donors and growing inequity, displacement, and higher cost of living on the rest of us. 


Pay-to-Play MUST be stopped, sign below to call for an independent investigator now!

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Dear President Breed and Members of the Board of San Francisco Board of Supervisors:

We, the undersigned are appalled at recent allegations of "Pay to Play" inside City Hall. 

The influence of tens of millions of dollars spent by Ron Conway, PG&E, the Realtors Association, wealthy luxury housing developers and Wall Street Finance within City Hall has had direct impact on the quality of life, cost of living and preservation of our neighborhoods and their character.

Two Civil Grand Jury Reports (2011 and 2014) on the shortcomings of the SF Ethics Commission made a number of recommendation to address the influence of outside money in politics.  Very few of these recommendations have been followed!

We are calling for the Board of Supervisors to set aside any money that might be needed for an independent investigation of illegal campaign contributions and the unfair influence these donations have had on our city. 

In addition to investigation of Campaign Finance Violations, loopholes to retire debt, and Behested Payments, we call for a report that shows how money has influenced legislative, contract or other decisions with in City Hall.

    Enforce the laws to stop the corruption at City Hall. If new laws and regulations are needed, let’s pass them.
