Hi folks. I’m writing you from Houston, Texas* where I’m managing a small field office for the Beto O’Rourke campaign for U.S. Senate!
There are some seriously good people here working their butts off to get us over this big Texas-sized hump! And this campaign’s ground game is amazing.
So will Operation Deep in the ❤️ of Texas succeed? I guess we’ll see in about 2 weeks! 🤞🏽
On a personal note, this is the hardest it’s ever been for me to leave home to fight the good fight. I’m super thankful for Kimberly for being on solo-parent duty this week, even though she has a cold!
Anyway, all this Houston-ness makes me super-appreciative of our blue state, so please GO VOTE & make it even better.
(Also note, dear readers – we have some new Oakland & San Jose specific websites to recommend – check out the links in the Extras section.)
*Actually, I’m on the plane, on my way back now, finishing this up. I’ve been writing all week in between my duties and after we closed up shop for the day.
.ps: Let’s start a new tradition: #votingstickerselfie AFTER YOU VOTE: take a pic with your voting sticker on your nose & hashtag it as #votingstickerselfie!

WHAT IS THIS?
Every San Francisco election cycle, I put out my “‘Deep Slate” voter guide: this post is my guide for this election!
The format of this post:
- The LIST: the simple list of my endorsements for this election.
- The DETAILS: the whys and wherefores of each endorsement. This is how I arrived at each position.
- My VALUES: a brief explanation of my values and sources, to help make sense of my opinions.
- Sources: a collection of my sources and a tiny bit about how I arrive at my endorsements.
- Extras: If you want to know where to vote, or want to find older ‘Deep Slates, or some Oakland/San Jose stuff….
Also note that a few days after the election, you can come back & check the RESULTS by clicking here.
Thanks, as always, to the number of folks who have asked me for my opinions. I say it every time because it is quite true: I really am honored by your interest.
And big props to my lovely wife, for proofreading this and also for being so supportive of all my meetings & involvements!
So without further preamble, let’s dive in! (damn, that was a lot of preamble)
