Voter recommendations for the November 6, 2018 election
Shaun Haines - October 2018 Newsletter
Good Morning and Happy Election Day.
This is your choice but I wanted to share some recommendations for the November 6, 2018 election. If you haven't already. I encourage you to vote today.
With the exception of District 8 Supervisor, Rafael Mandelman, as an Associate member of our Democratic Party, I have not received any official requests for endorsement for this electoral cycle.
Instead, I focused my time on supporting Prop C, Prop E and Prop 8 because they are initiatives I believe will help uplift our communities and the many projects I have been engaged in to help us accomplish what's needed for those who are most at risk.
After significant consideration regarding the state of our city and the work, we must do together. Please consider voting yes on the following propositions and candidates.
Recommendations based on considerations of experience, diversity, equity and inclusion in positions of leadership as well as a platform and body of work which relates to addressing our concerns around homelessness, poverty, safety and housing.

Please beware: My dear friends at SF Women’s March alerted me to fake event pages.
I look forward to continuing to support our event by again volunteering as a safety ambassador.
“Fake events for Philadelphia and Chicago received more than 10,000 RSVPs; the event posted for Seattle picked up more than 20,000.” The real REAL /OFFICIAL WMSF March & Rally is on Saturday, January 19, 2019, under this link:
Quoted in Recent Press Coverage:

Full Story Here: WASHINGTON D.C. (8/7)- According to Jesus "Chuy" Garcia, “Today, August 7th, is the last day to submit public comments about the proposed content in the 2020 U.S. Census. This spring, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross added a citizenship question to the Census, which will likely deter immigrant communities across the country from taking part in the count. Join me in telling the Trump administration NO to the citizenship question...” California Secretary of State Alex Padilla and civil rights leaders echoed that sentiment and urge Californians to submit public comments in opposition to the proposed citizenship question on the 2020 Census questionnaire.
Let's Stay Connected
Keeping up with my 2016 DCCC campaign promises, 2017 was a lot of focused work staging our success for 2018. 2018 is shaping up to be another community centered year, for me. I will be focusing a lot of time on coalition building around common social justice concerns, health impacts to communities of color, working with allies in helping to create a pipeline out of homelessness, organizing learning and community leadership opportunities -- inviting you to become engaged in making our world a better place. I hope you will join me!
