Meet Our New Supervisor – Jeff Sheehy

In March our new District 8 Supervisor Jeff Sheehy attended the 20th Street Neighbors Block meeting and discussed his pragmatic approach to improving San Francisco’s well-being.  DHIC invited him back to Dolores Heights to meet more neighbors on Saturday, June 3 following our Green Gardens clean-up at the top of the Sanchez Street Stairs (event details below.)

More about our new Supervisor:  He’s focused on quality of life. He described his background & experience: active on gay/AIDS issues in the 90s – winning important equality battles.  His agenda now is the city’s well-being — focused on quality of life. Crime and safety are a big concern.  Among the three police stations in his district, the Mission is by far the hottest in terms of crime – car break-ins, burglaries, and muggings and other crimes against people.  Homelessness is an issue.  Supervisor Sheehy is pushing for zero encampments in his district.  He believes the city can both help the homeless and get rid of tents, bike theft, & public drug use.  Supervisor Sheehy says he’s pragmatic, and he encouraged people to use 311 to report problems and to send him a photo along with email when he needs to escalate.

Recently, Supervisor Sheehy demonstrated his responsiveness. On April 5 he took action minutes after receiving a resident email and photo of garbage piled up at 20th & Sanchez. And a DPW crew arrived within 30 minutes to clean up the mess.

Supervisor Sheehy just accepted DHIC’s invitation to visit our neighborhood Spring Gathering which starts at 10:30am on Saturday, June 3 at the top of the Sanchez Street Stairs.  He’ll listen to residents and answer questions.  And he’ll be able to see the character of Dolores Heights – its views, green spaces, and its homes perched on the hillsides – along with the awesome work of the Green Gardens/Stairways volunteers who help keep our stairways and the surrounding public planting areas clean and cultivated.  Join us at the Spring Gathering to meet Supervisor Sheehy.
