Local 21 member Tina Cen-Camarao speaking at rally for Schools & Communities First.
We’re winning. Thanks to our growing movement to strengthen city services, the SF Board of Supervisors, joined by Mayor London Breed and other elected leaders, have unanimously endorsed Schools & Communities First this week.
The SF Board of Supervisors resolution makes clear what we’re fighting for:
WHEREAS, The Schools and Communities Funding Act will bring in about $800 million to the City and County of San Francisco, San Francisco Unified School District, and City College of San Francisco;
Local 21 member Tina Cen-Camarao and Supervisor Mar fight side by side for city services.
This Tuesday, IFPTE Local 21 members joined Supervisor Gordon Mar in a rally at City Hall to urge the Board to unanimously pass the resolution. Other organizations joining us at Tuesday’s rally were SF Rising, Evolve California, United Educators of San Francisco, SEIU 1021, Coleman Advocates, ACCE, SF League of Women Voters, Tech Equity Collaborative, and the California Alliance for Retired Americans. Members of the San Francisco City College Board of Trustees and San Francisco Board of Education were also there to share their support.
Speaking at the rally in support of this transformative measure, Recreation and Parks accountant and IFPTE Local 21 member Tina Cen-Camarao said, “I’ve been an accountant for the City and County of San Francisco for more than 11 years. My job is to make sure that our public dollars are spent fairly. This initiative will do that.” Tina’s message reached our community in Sing Tao Daily, Skylink, KTSF Television, and World News.
Local 21 is collecting signatures to qualify this ballot measure for the November 2020 election because we know how important it is to invest in our public services.
Schools & Communities First will close a corporate tax loophole and reclaim $12 billion annually from giant corporations to fund public education and local services, while protecting homeowners and renters. We have a historic opportunity to reinvest in our public serivces — we’re not gonna let it slip through our fingers.
