Reporters are digging into secret recordings and documents that indicate the influence of dirty money could go all the way to the top: Mayor Ed Lee. And at the very least, a culture of corruption is rampant in City Hall. For years, it has been clear that San Francisco is being run for the benefit of a wealthy few who influence City Hall by controlling who is elected and how their campaigns are funded. This overwhelming influx of big money in politics is fundamentally corrupting the city's democracy. Sign the petition and call for a wide-ranging and completely independent investigation into political corruption in San Francisco!

California is facing a drought of historic proportions, and while individuals are being forced to reduce their water usage, big industries are pumping more groundwater than our state can supply.

These are some of the hardest working Californians in some of the most challenging jobs around. They deserve every penny.
