FROM THE EXECUTIVE BOARD OF PROTECT OUR BENEFITS, INC.
A BIG THANK-YOU TO ALL OF YOU!!!!
Yes, with your help YOU were the driving force in the passage of PROP A. True, it was a broad coalition of a State Senator, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, politicians, political parties, unions, the Labor Counsel, associations, clubs, and anonymous donors who made this happen. With a favorable vote of over 65%, Prop A passed handily. For a partial list of donors and backer’s check out the website: www.YesonPropA.net POB appreciates your e-mails, phone calls, notes to the different supervisors, telling friends and voters who live in San Francisco and encouraging them to Vote Yes on Prop A. A special thank you to Ahsha Safai for sponsoring the initiative for the ballot. Without his invaluable help, it would have been a longer road to get Prop A on the ballot. Thank-you Supervisor. And POB would be remiss if we didn’t thank our political advisors, Tony Fazio of Winning Solutions and Cherri Senders of The Senders Group with Robert Fulton. Their knowledge and guidance were invaluable in helping us run a campaign for the passage of a very important issue. Thank you!!!
