Instead of spending money on signatures, buy us dinner

shenanigans
The committee behind the "Comprehensive Pension Reform" ballot measure (now known as Prop B) spent nearly $1.16 million to collect 94,246 valid signatures. If you're going to spend $12.28 per signature, how about instead of hounding us outside the grocery store, next take all of us out for one of the following, equivalently priced dinners.

1. A double cheeseburger with a craft beer at Hodad's (Ocean Beach)

2. Ph? Filet Mignon with a Vietnamese coffee at Ph? Fifth Ave. (Hillcrest)

3. Kilimanjaro beef skewer, with dengu, ugali and two cream-cheese-coconut-pineapple sambusas at Flavors of East Africa.(University Heights). 

4. Twelve-piece gizzard combo with cornbread, fries, side of collared greens and grape Kool Aid at Annie Belle's Famous Wings & Greens (Emerald Hills)

5. Three pupusas, fried plantains and a horchata at El Salvadoreno (Grant Hill)
