SF voters to decide on city-funded legal representation for tenants facing eviction

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- San Francisco voters Tuesday will decide whether tenants in the city facing eviction will be entitled to a city-funded attorney.

Proposition F provides for city-funded legal representation for tenants in eviction lawsuits. Any resident of the city battling an eviction would get an attorney paid for by the city if Prop F passes.

The proposition is endorsed by the San Francisco chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, the SF Tenants Union, the Housing Rights Committee of San Francisco, Causa Justa: Just Cause, Coalition on Homelessness, Affordable Housing Alliance and other groups.
