Good manners aren't expensive and they never go out of style.

A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog post about the candidates and ballot measures I support. I wrote about four of them and I sent $50 to each.

Some have gotten back to me by e-mail. Some of asked me for more cash. I am neither surprised or disappointed by this.

Today, I got a handwritten note from Michael Nava, the lawyer and former mystery novel writer now running for Superior Court judge in San Francisco. Here is what the note says.


Dear Matthew,

Thank you so much for your contribution to my campaign. Please call your San Francisco friends and ask them to vote for me. I deeply appreciate your help.


The title of this post bears repeating. Good manners aren't expensive and they never go out of style. To all my readers who are registered to vote in San Francisco, please vote for Michael Nava for Superior Court judge on the November 2 ballot.

Thank you for your kind attention.

Wow... that is amazing and so good to hear. Human - that is what it is, very human.

I found out about Michael Nava from SF Mike and since I know he's critical of many politicians, his recommendation meant a lot. Now, you've confirmed it. Michael Nava for Superior Judge!
