According to Scott Beale, San Francisco artist “Chicken John” Rinaldi, wants to run for mayor, but needs to raise $5000 by 5pm this Friday, August 10th in order to be on the ballot.
To meet this monetary demand from the city, Chicken scraped together enough money to run the ad above on page 19 of the August 8th edition of the San Francisco Bay Guardian.
In the ad, Chicken asks the current mayor, Gavin Newsom, to pop for his fee, given that the mayor has already raised $1.6 million to run for an uncontested seat.
I hope Newsom and/or the people of San Francisco provide the money.
