WORK AND FAMILY


Uber is giving the gift of a 60-hour a week to some drivers. How nice. What about wives, husbands, children parents, grandparents who might like to see and enjoy their Uber driver relatives? Might not a union help drivers get good money, time off, vacation time and pay? I thought family values were important not only to Republicans but also to business owners. The demand for higher profits means more time working, all at the expense of the American family.

POLICE MISCONDUCT


The San Francisco Police officers I have met have been courteous, helpful and efficient. I have confidence that they are peace officers. The police shootings of young men have been disturbing.  The lack of public access to police misconduct records makes me wonder what law enforcement officials are hiding. Clergy, teachers' and coaches' misconduct allegations these days are instantly available to the public and media. Police need not be exempt from public scrutiny. I will be even more confident in the San Francisco Police if I know their misconduct allegations are available to us all.
