If trying to plead their case to our broke federal government doesn't work, he'll also be hanging out with the Chinese, maybe they have some money San Francisco can borrow.

SF Gate:

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee will make his first official trip as the head of city government when he flies to Washington, D.C., on Wednesday for the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Lee is also to attend a state dinner for Chinese President Hu Jintao and meetings with federal officials such as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco.

"This is a short but important trip to solidify personal relationships and represent San Francisco's interest in an era of declining federal resources," mayoral spokesman Tony Winnicker said. "We benefited from significant federal stimulus dollars in recent years, and those are gone; so directly advocating for the city and key federal support will pay dividends."

You knew this whole terrorizing citizens using the Parking Gestapo budget plan wasn't going to work forever...
