Chamber members heard from District 4 Supervisor Carmen Chu last Thursday at SUPES for Lunch. Supervisor Chu discussed the city budget, outsourcing city services to local businesses, and a hybrid system of elections, among other issues.  “I’m tempted to say a hybrid election system would work, but there are a lot of questions to be thought through before putting something like that on the ballot,” Chu said. Ten years after San Francisco moved from citywide to district elections, the Chamber’s recent CityBeat poll showed support for a hybrid system in which seven supervisors are elected from districts and four are elected ...

1 in 3 San Francisco employees earned $100000 - SFGate
More than 1 in 3 of San Francisco's nearly 27,000 city workers earned $100,000 or more last year - a number that has been growing steadily for the past decade. The number of city workers paid at least $100,000 in base salary totaled 6,449 last year. When such extras as overtime are included, the number jumped to 9,487 workers, nearly eight times the number from a decade ago. And that calculation doesn't include the cost of often-generous city benefits such as health care and pensions. The pay data obtained by The Chronicle show that many of the high earners bolstered their base pay with overtime and "other ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Wireless industry retaliates against SF law
Responding to last week's 10-1 Board of Supervisors vote mandating the posting of radiation levels emitted by cell phones sold in retail stores, the wireless industry's trade organization has decided to take its convention business elsewhere. Not only will this October's cell phone conference be its last here, the Washington, D.C., organization, CTIA , reportedly is urging others in the mobile phone business, including Apple Inc . and Cisco Inc ., to do likewise. "We felt they sent us a message about how they felt about the industry and the technology," CTIA Vice President John Walls said in a telephone ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
GOP chair Steele mines California fundraisers
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele spoke to the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce on Thursday and heads to Napa this weekend for a series of fundraisers, hoping that wealthy Californians can help fill the organization's coffers and boost campaign efforts as the November election nears. Steele said the party's fundraising in the Bay Area has been successful. Last week, he said it no longer views California as a "fly-over state" that offers only fundraising opportunities but as a state that Republican candidates, including U.S. Senate nominee Carly Fiorina and gubernatorial nominee Meg ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Governor Delivers Remarks at the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce
MAYOR BROWN: Nancy, thank you very much for that very kind introduction. I know most of you have waited, as I have waited, for the occasion to greet a man who, for the last 15, 16 months, has proven to all of us in this country what a real effective governor should and can be. He governs in a state which is decidedly Democratic by registration. He governs in a state in which the members of both Houses of the Legislature are dominated by Democrats. He governs in a state in which the other constitutional officers are Democrats. He governs in a state from which the Speaker of the House of Representatives comes, a Democrat. ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
The U.S. Chamber: A Record of Obstruction on Climate Action by ...
In 1883, New York faced an environmental crisis. Water levels were falling in the state’s rivers and canals, impeding travel and shipping. Scientists and editorial writers placed the blame on the logging and burning of the Adirondacks, which prevented the forests from exercising their usual moderating influence on stream flows. With the loss of the forests, it was feared, the steady release of water would be replaced by a cycle of floods and low water. To make matters worse, these impacts were the result of logging only on the fringes of the Adirondack region. But in 1883, the Adirondack Railroad Company proposed to build a line ...

Any tips for a single female moving to San Francisco alone ...
I'm pretty sure I want to move to San Francisco in about a year, but I don't know anyone there and I don't know the area at all. In fact, while I've lived up and down the east coast, I've never been west of the Mississippi River before. Does anyone know some tips for moving there? What are the good and bad neighborhoods? Where might it be safe for a young, single woman to live alone? How much money would one have to make in order to afford a studio apartment without roommates? Is it difficult to have a car there? What are the people like on the West Coast? What is the overall ...
