||It is generally perceived that Willie Brown made good selections in his appointments to city departments and commissions.
||Police & Fire Departments
|| Both of these departments appear to be functioning well. The mayor's appointments to the heads of these two departments seem well respected and are committed to running these departments in a professional manner.
|| There is still a lot of room for improvement here. The drivers seemed more polite when Willie took office but the system still does not live up to the major's campaign promises. Statements that the public will have to learn to expect less do not help either the system or the credibility of the mayor.
|| Not much changed in this area since taking office. There were expectations of improvement when his was elected but little seems to have changed.
|| It was a decisive step to have this department taken over by the Federal government. This will have the effect of insulating you from negative reactions to changes in this area. You seem to recognize the difficult issues as well as the importance of jobs in replacing public assistance. The issue of the respect for rights is a touchy one. People will support you if they believe you are being fair but not if it is handled in a heavy handed way.
|| The idea of creating San Francisco wide medical insurance was excellent and well worth exploring. If you can pull this one off you will have gone a long way to insuring your political future in this city for years to come.
||Willie Brown is a dynamic leader who brings a flair and dynamism to the city. His ability to listen to people with a wide variety of issues is certainly an asset to city government and sets a refreshing model for others to follow. Mr. Brown is a natural leader and a dynamic speaker.
||Areas for Improvement.
