San Francisco Parent Political Action Committee Endorses David Chiu for Assembly

SAN FRANCISCO (May 19, 2014): Today The San Francisco Parent Political Action Committee (Parent PAC) announced our enthusiastic support for David Chiu’s campaign for the 17th Assembly District.

The Parent PAC expressed our support for David Chiu because of the strong leadership for families and kids that he has shown as President of the Board of Supervisors.  The Parent PAC considered Chiu’s first in the nation policy allowing parents and caregivers to request more flexible and predictable work schedules, his successful effort to allow strollers on Muni, and his support of the Beach Chalet Athletic Fields as just a few of the reasons why he stands out in this race.

The Parent PAC was founded by and for San Francisco parents and is committed to giving parents a voice in the political process to positively impact the lives of all San Francisco families.  The Parent PAC supports and promotes city candidates, measures and policies that will most effectively ensure high quality education for every child in every neighborhood, increase access to affordable youth programs that support working families and enrich the lives of our children and sustain healthy, safe and vibrant communities city-wide.

Michelle Parker, Co-founder of the Parent PAC said, “David Chiu is the only choice for San Francisco’s families. Chiu has worked tirelessly to make our city more affordable, safe and friendly for our parents and our kids. Unlike his opponent David Campos, Chiu has been a consistent and strong voice for us. Vote David Chiu for Assembly.”

The Parent PAC encourages its members to get involved in supporting David Chiu for Assembly by volunteering at the campaign office at 549 Castro St., calling campaign staff at (415) 846-8108, signing up to volunteer at www.votedavidchiu.com and spreading the word to fellow San Francisco parents about the importance of this race.

SF SODA TAX’S BIG TENT OF SUPPORTERS JUST GOT BIGGER

February 11, 2014

cans of soda

The San Francisco Parent Political Action Committee (SF Parent PAC) is pleased to announce that last night (2/10/14) the San Francisco PTA (2nd District Parent Teacher Association) unanimously endorsed  the San Francisco Soda Tax.  The SF PTA joins a growing list of grassroots organizations and elected officials endorsing The Soda Tax.  The most recent endorsements of The Soda Tax include Assemblymember Phil Ting; Supervisor David Campos; and The California Nurses Association.  Finally, the Executive Board of UESF (San Francisco Teacher’s Union) has recommended endorsement to its membership.

 

The Soda Tax would levy a $.02 per ounce tax on all  sugary beverages of 25 calories or more with sugar added to them (exempted from this tax are juices, milk products, and nutritional supplements like Ensure).  The tax is estimated to reduce consumption of sugary beverages by up to 25% as well as raise $31 million annually to fund active recreation in SF’s public schools and Rec and Parks.  Additionally the revenues will be used to help access to healthy foods and nutritional education through SF’s public schools and the SF Dept of Health.

 

The Soda Tax has already been endorsed by Senator Mark Leno; Assemblymember Tom Ammiano; Supervisors Wiener, Mar, Cohen, Avalos. and Chiu; the SFUSD Board of Education, The Hospital Council of Northern California; The SF Medical Society; and The Trust for Public Land.

 

On another note, Dana Woldow, a columnist for Beyond Chron has been doing an outstanding job of chronicling Big Soda’s deceptive practices in fighting the soda tax.  You can read her latest article here http://tinyurl.com/kqsd5vh.

 

Finally, The SF Parent PAC can not do this work alone.  With your support, we can continue to give parents a strong voice in San Francisco politics.  Please consider donating here https://co.clickandpledge.com/sp/d1/default.aspx?wid=37691
