San Francisco May Slap Warning Labels on Ads for Sugary Drinks

What do you think?


San Francisco city officials will vote on a proposal to slap warning labels on advertisements for sugary drinks this Tuesday, as part of a continuing campaign to curb consumption of sweetened beverages.

The city’s board of Board of Supervisors is expected to vote on the “Sugar-Sweetened Beverage Warning Ordinance” this Tuesday, AP reports. Beverage advertisements within city limits would be required to bear a label that reads, “WARNING: Drinking beverages with added sugar(s) contributes to obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay.”

The vote comes only months after voters rejected a proposal to raise taxes on sugary drinks, over the objections of beverage trade associations.

Wow, it’s been a while since I posted anything, so I think it’s time for an update!

I graduated on April 25th, and moved back to Livonia a couple weeks later. As much as I miss Grand Rapids, I’m so thankful to be close to family and friends again. I was able to slowly transition out of one of my roles at Marketplace Homes, so it gave me some much needed time off! I got to see Jason Aldean front row, spend some time downtown, go to the beach, and even kayak through downtown Chicago. Taking a break was nice, but I’m very happy to be working full time again!

That brings me to my biggest update: I have a new job! I started at Pinnacle Homes a couple weeks ago as a Sales Assistant. I’ve learned a lot in the past two weeks and I’m thankful for the countless experiences the job has given me thus far. Real estate and new construction has been a passion of mine for several years, so I’m happy to continue exploring the industry.

Now that life has settled down a bit, I’m hoping to spend some more time blogging! I’m doing my best to stay up to date on all things advertising, including producing new work for my portfolio. Stay tuned!

 “What do you bring to our company?”
Bring up an experience in the past that shows your creativity, drive, and work ethic. People love to hear stories, so tell a story that will make you stand out from other candidates.
