Endorsements

Another election? Yep. The November ballot will be the crowning election of an already crowded election year. All the official positions that have been recalled and covered by mayoral appointments now must be validated by the voters. This includes three SF Unified School District board members and our district attorney. To ensure our members understand what's on their ballot and how that can affect our City, ENDC has researched each candidate and ballot measure and come up with our November 2022 endorsements.
