Dear <<First Name>>,

Today marks my 100th day as Supervisor of District 6! And it's my birthday! Enjoy the updates, join us at upcoming events, and support what we have coming up. Stay connected with our office on Facebook
 or email us at haneystaff@sfgov.org.

 

You're Invited: Upcoming Events
Tonight! Come to my birthday celebration and fundraiser for SOMA Youth Collaborative at the iconic St. Joseph's Art Society. Though this is a fundraiser and donations are encouraged, all are invited and no one will be turned away!
On Monday, April 22nd from 6-7:30pm we are hosting our 2nd Town Hall to hear your budget and legislative priorities, and share our plans. Join us at the Koret Auditorium for a Tenderloin & SOMA focused community forum. 
100 Days: What We've Done
It's only been 100 days, and already we've conducted more than 40 community meetings, met with 25 city departments, authored or co-sponsored 68 ordinances and resolutions, held 2 hearings with 4 more introduced, taken 233 meetings (and that's not including my staff!), and directly supported 200 constituents. 
Tackling Homelessness
Yesterday I introduced an ordinance requiring every Supervisor District in the City to build a Navigation Center in the next 30 months. My "Navigating Homelessness Together" proposal will not only make a huge dent in our unsheltered homelessness crisis and establish a citywide solution, it will also create consistent community outreach guidelines and criteria for choosing sites for Navigation Centers.

And here in D6, a Nav Center has been proposed on the Embarcadero. If approved, it will have a positive impact on the neighborhood and the hundreds of people experiencing homelessness nearby. I've been to a dozen community meetings listening and negotiating to make sure the Center will work for the neighbors and the people it will serve inside.
Building Affordable Housing
We're also taking on the housing crisis. San Francisco is consistently behind its goal of producing affordable housing, in part because we don't have enough funding. That's why I am pushing for a $1 BILLION housing bond that will build more housing, especially for people who are  extremely low-income, low-income and moderate-income.

And we're updating the Jobs Housing Linkage Fee to capture additional revenue for affordable housing from upcoming office construction projects. Experts estimate that we're losing out on hundreds of millions of dollars a year by relying on a 20-year old jobs-housing linkage fee that doesn't take into account the increased need for housing. 
Improving Public Safety
Drug overdose is a leading cause of accidental death in California, with 100 related deaths in SF annually. For years the City has been fighting to implement an overdose prevention program through a safe injection site. I'm a proud author of the resolution to support AB 362, a state bill that will allow SF to do a 3-year pilot program!

Next up, we're shutting down Juvenile Hall! I'm proud to stand by my colleagues Supervisors Ronen and Walton to close this jail for kids, and to expand community-based alternatives to detention. With our proposal, SF will lead the nation by closing an unnecessary, ineffective and expensive juvenile hall.
Enhancing Pedestrian and Bike Safety
Nearly every street in District 6 is on the High Injury Network--meaning pedestrians and cyclists have an increased risk of being injured or killed. It's unacceptable. And outside of the District, too many streets are wrecklessly dangerous. It's time to change that, and I'm taking action with the Bike Coalition and WalkSF to make our streets safer and expedite safety improvement on our most dangerous corridors, like Howard and the Embarcadero.
Here's What's Next!
We're just getting started! In the next 100 days, we are:
  • Rolling out a comprehensive plan to clean our streets
  • Renaming Gilbert Street to Jeff Adachi Way
  • Holding a hearing on the "Twitter Tax Break" impacts on Mid-Market
  • Hosting the Grand Opening of the long-awaited Mission Bay Dog Park
  • Announcing groundbreaking tenant protection legislation
  • Holding a hearing on open-air drug dealing and crafting innovative solutions
  • Fighting for equitable resources for D6 in the budget process
  • and so much more! 
Thanks for your support,
Matt & the D6 Team
