Ringtone Appreciation Day
WHEREAS, ringtones notify citizens of San Francisco of phone calls, text messages, or electronic mail; and
WHEREAS, ringtones also notify everyone else of your transmissions; and
WHEREAS, ringtones allow us to express ourselves via default melodies or excerpted popular music, and
WHEREAS, the consumption of said abridged songs provides additional revenue for songwriters and composers.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that, I, Gavin Newsom, Mayor of the City of San Francisco, do hereby proclaim August 15 of each year as
RINGTONE APPRECIATION DAY
and may it be further resolved that the legislative assembly encourages all in San Francisco to recognize and honor our ringtones for their efforts to keep our citizens informed of incoming calls.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused to be affixed the Seal of the City of San Francisco, California, this 15th day of August, 2010.
