Lessons for the Nation
from San Francisco

Homelessness, drug addiction, lax law enforcement and corruption are destroying San Francisco. This is a tragedy, a crisis and a national embarrassment.

It has become abundantly clear that San Francisco's politicians and their absurd and ideology-based policies regarding homelessness, drug addiction, mental illness, crime and drug dealing have pushed our city to the brink, attracting the attention of national media. We truly cannot reach any goal of meaningful, positive change without the support of each and every one of you to reverse this tragic crisis.

Instead they criticize, berate, insult us. This is not how governance is supposed to work."
