Thank you for joining the Public Radio Reunion!

A big thanks to the more than 2000 listeners who gave during KALW's May campaign, contributing more than $325,000 to Local Public Radio. Your support sustains us and inspires us. At the end of the campaign, we were just past 80% of our goal of $400,000. Closing that gap will allow KALW to continue to grow its programming and service to the community. All contributions that come in by Wednesday will count toward the goal. Thank you!

If things go the way Bay Area sports fans hope, by the time voters head to the ballot box on June 5, the Warriors may be in the middle of the NBA finals at Oracle Arena in Oakland.

But if the Warriors make the finals next June, they’ll be playing in San Francisco, in their brand-new stadium in Mission Bay.

Proposition I wants to discourage moves like this one. If it passes, San Francisco would have a quote “official policy” discouraging owners of professional sports teams from relocating to the city.

San Francisco Unified School District

 

Proposition G is all about pay for San Francisco Unified School District educators. Recruiting and retaining teachers, instructional aides, school psychologists and others who work with students has been tough for the district. That’s because San Francisco is a very expensive place to live.

Prop G would boost educators’ pay through a $298 parcel tax on properties in San Francisco. It would kick in on July 1 and stay in place for two decades. Senior citizens would be exempt.
