      San Francisco, CA

Last November the people of San Francisco democratically elected Ross Mirkarimi as our new Sheriff. He has the public safety and legislative experience needed to run the Sheriff's office, and we want to urge our elected leaders to honor the will of the voters by reinstating him as our Sheriff immediately!

      Please come if you can, and invite other supporters. There was a mishap with my last email message sent 6/28/12, and it was delivered late, 07/04/12. I apologize as it says there are hearings "Thursday and Friday," but no dates... The hearings were June 28th and 29th, there are no hearings this week. I sent a corrective message, that I hope will arrive timely and prevent any confusion. Thank you!

      I will need to work on the best way to deliver this to the Mayor and Board. I think they were supposed to get emails as signatures came in, but now I will find another way to deliver this. Also, if it is only a few dozen, he (they) will not even blink, so please, please spread the word. Due to technical difficulties, I am signed into the admin page, after being locked out, so I am staying "logged in," to avoid being locked out again, and therefore cannot access the link that the public needs to sign in.
      I have read really powerful comments, so I plan to send them, unless and until, I lose access to the account...

      The attempt to unseat Sheriff Mirkarimi is clearly a case of political assassination on the part of Mayor Lee and the Chronicle (C. Nevius particularly). The punishment that Mr. Mirkarimi has had to endure is unfair and caused obviously by Mr. Lee's fervent desire to unseat him from the job he was elected, prepared, and well qualified to do. Let the man do his job!!!

      I have read much on this. It is so obviously a political set-up to get rid of Mirkarimi. There are REAL crimes, in and out of government.
