He isn’t the mayor.

He’s the Interim Mayor.

He’s an excellent Chief Administrator and whomever you vote for should appoint Ed Lee Chief Administrator, agreed.

But it is corruption and cronyism that allows Ed Lee to be a candidate in this election and it is pseudo-incumbency that lends him legitimacy in the face of his own backtracking on candidacy. There is and was no clamor for him to enter the race. It is the height of political artifice.

The only way to have an ethical election is to exclude Ed Lee from your three choices for Mayor.

As I’ve previously stated, I can endorse no candidate as better for the City than myself, and so won’t. But I ask you in all earnestness to exclude Ed Lee

Five year budgets for corporate cronies and special interests are the worst thing for our economy right now.
