Historic Overview

"THE SAN FRANCISCO results saw the Progressive Left Slate (PLS) emerge as the main left opposition to the one-party political machine controlled by Democratic mayor Willie Brown and state senator John Burton. The Progressive Left Slate is an alliance between Labor Militant, the Immigrant Rights Movement (MDI), the monthly political-cultural alternative newspaper SF Frontlines, and several other organizations - as well as individual members of the Labor Party, the Green Party, the Peace & Freedom Party and tenant, immigrant, neighborhood, student and labor activists. The slate ran five candidates for city-wide local offices who got between 11% and 26% of the vote." http://www.socialismtoday.org/34/sanfran34.html
