  1. You are completely wrong on Measure R. Real environmentalists know the greenest thing we can do is build with density near transit. R will leave us with more empty storefronts and desolate streets by making appropriately sized housing economically unfeasible. You need people living downtown to support theater, retail, bars and restaurants and to keep “eyes on the street”. R is simply a NIMBY knee jerk reaction to the good things that are finally happening downtown after decades of decay. It has NOTHING to do with saving the post office which opponents of R also support. Try thinking instead of reacting and vote against R and support a vibrant downtown. That is the progressive position for the environment.
