Position Papers
Affordable and livable housing / landlord-tenant rights
"San Francisco deserves the fair, but strict, enforcement of its fire, health, building and housing codes; it is unacceptable that 29-day "musical room" evictions are tolerated in Single Room Occupancy units. Similarly, San Francisco deserves decided interpretation and implementation of its Rent Control Ordinance, in-law unit legalization, enforcement of the live-work ordinance and protection of existing housing stock." - Steve Williams
Public power; enforcement of the Raker Act
"I support the creation of a municipal utility district in San Francisco. I vow to enforce the 1913 congressional Raker Act, acting under the direction of the 1940 U.S. Supreme Court decision." - Steve Williams
City contracting process - fair, honest enforcement
"I will ensure that the City contracting process is enforced fairly and honestly. The City Attorney must "approve all contracts as to form," but that approval process often has failed to adhere to City and State laws regarding the solicitation and competitive award processes. That won't happen when I'm the City Attorney." - Steve Williams
