Democratic Central Committee Resolution to Preserve Nightlife Passes!

Earlier this week I reported that the San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee was considering a resolution to support and preserve nightlife, street fairs, and civic events in the city, and urged everyone who was a registered Democrat to let your views be known. It seems to have worked, or, at least, the resolution was passed. Here's the meat of it, but you can read the whole thing on their website:
AND WHEREAS San Francisco has become noticeably less tolerant of nightlife and outdoor events, with City government in recent years proposing large fee increases, policy changes, and other restrictions and impediments that threaten the long-term viability of these venues and events, including, for example, the How Weird Street Faire, the Hairrison Street Fair, the Haight Street Fair, and any event that occurs in a City park;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the San Francisco Democratic Party expresses its strong support for San Francisco’s nightlife and tradition of outdoor events, which are vital to the City’s cultural fabric, and which are capable of being conducted in a manner that respects public safety and the surrounding neighborhoods;
Whether or not this will make any difference at all remains to be seen, but it's always good when you have some potential political muscle to back you up in these matters.

Yay ~ it's good to see something positive on this front.... seems like it's been a parade of bad news otherwise for a while now. Thanks for spreading the word about this!
