New York City, which faces socioeconomic challenges similar to San Francisco's, has exciting potential right now because of the election of Mayor Bill de Blasio, who waged a long and difficult campaign based on progressive ideals and issues. By contrast, San Francisco seems stuck in the anachronistic view that catering to capitalists will somehow serve the masses.
The Mayor's Office has been a potent force for blocking progressive reforms over the last 20 years. Now is the time to place that office in service of the people.
