about elections, there is no perfect election system. if you think about it, the thing to focus on, the decision making is the ultimate pain. turnout is one component of that. right now, and the republican party, we have a lot of people complaining that republicans are doing things actively designed to suppress the vote. i don't see how democrats can complain about voter suppression when the democratic party isn't even have aing a primary for the democratic candidate. primaries don't weaken candidates, they make them stronger. >> members of the board of supervisors, member of san francisco open government.

i was on the staff of the pacific fleet that is in charge of all of the military forces in the pacific and i used to give surveys. this survey is designed to get a specific answer to raise questions of the cost of sunshine to attack the members of the sunshine ordinance taskforce, and most of all, to discourage members of the public that want to use the open government laws to make the government open and at least somewhat responsive to the citizens. i think it is an embarrassment, and i said this to the ethics commission that the civil grand jury has noted that they did not enforce the sunshine roles ever in eight years. you have never given if he support it deserves. they disparage those members --
