The tax battle at City Hall is heating up.
A coalition fighting the pending tax measure for the November ballot has taken its campaign to the Web. The coalition, which includes the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, the Building Owners and Managers Association and The Committee on Jobs launched the new site, economicrecoverysf.com, in effort to broaden the campaign against the tax measures.
The group wasted no time in communicating its message online. The home page of the site takes readers through a series of statistics backing up its argument against new tax measures: “We are very concerned about San Francisco’s economic recovery. Over the past two years our City has lost more than 40,000 private sector jobs; 13 million square feet of commercial space, much of it neighborhood retail, sits vacant and businesses of all sizes are struggling.”
