S.F. teachers union out to beat 3 trustees
In a classic game of payback, the San Francisco teachers union has launched a campaign to defeat all three school board members up for re-election in November. The union's beef with the three started in February when the board tried to bypass seniority rules so it could avoid laying off teachers at 14 struggling schools. Steyer, whose estimated $1.3 billion worth puts him on Forbes magazine's list of the 400 richest Americans, spent millions a couple of years ago to help beat back a challenge to California's climate change law. [...] chief campaign strategist Chris Lehane is sending out mailers that look like toilet paper, with the caption, "Wipe out corporate tax loopholes" - and listing Kimberly-Clark Corp., International Paper, General Motors and Chrysler as the chief companies in need of a wipe. Ramon Hernandez, business agent for the Laborers International Union Local 261 in San Francisco, politely brushed off the first couple of calls asking to use his Mission District union hall for some presidential-related fundraising. [...] finally: A San Francisco Department of Parking and Traffic veteran tells us the agency is stripping the DPT decals off its traffic enforcement scooters and replacing them with the umbrella Municipal Transportation Agency's SFMTA logo.
