Alice Griffith has a track record - being one of the most contaminated sites in San Francisco. Located north of Candlestick Stadium and next to the True Hope Church led by Aurelious Walker - a leading sell out in the Bayview Hunters Point area.

A number of reports all reported by the Main Media - reveal still births at Alice Griffith, chronic respiratory diseases, the worst cancers of all sorts.

The SF Health Department and more Barbara Garcia has not lifted a finger to do the right thing and study the high rate of respiratory diseases, cancer, and other chronic ailments.

It is the same at Hunterview and most other sites where indigent people are treated with disdain. Many Seniors who worked hard for others; were not paid enough - and now suffer more as Seniors in deplorable public housing.

Once built by the Department of Defense for the military - they were built to last for a short time - but Human and Development Agency (HUD) and others - have prolonged their use - more with the sordid model - of deferred maintenance. 

The site at Alice Griffith - better known as Double Rock - is contaminated and prone to acute flooding and liquefaction. It does not help that if the Big One strikes - a number of earthquake faults in its path - will be activated - and will directly impact this area.

Not far from Candlestick Park - right now; if you go to the area - you will see a pool of water two, three feet, and when the storm hits the area - like last night so bad - and no traffic can pass on the roads - bordering the State Park.

There is no public transportation worth the salt in this area.

Right now some drab focus group is holding discussion - sponsored by the SF Transportation Authority and the Metropolitan Transportation Agency (MTA) who is in charge of our public transportation - called MUNI.

Most of the folks belonging to the group have no idea what they are talking about - since they have no qualified experience - folks like Karen Pierce who has been selling the community - saying things that sound pleasing to the ear - but selling out the community - all the same.

I have not seen this woman at one single MTA meeting and less one SF County Transportation meeting - and the same holds good for the entire group - that must be ashamed of themselves - giving feed back on transportation issues - when they are NOT educated on issues - linked with transportation.

For the last 35 years and more since the Third Street Light Rail was pressed into service - Public Transportation has been deplorable all over District 10 but more in the out laying areas such as Double Rock aka Alice Griffith.

Here we have a report part of the Record of Decision (ROD) a 45 page report - with little or no concrete information - or even a viable plan - less empirical data that can help the constituents - and create forums for meaningful - discussion. Imagine a 12 line report on Transportation that reveal little if nothing at all - in this so called shallow - ROD linked with Alice Griffith.

It will require at least $100 million to clean up the area where the new development is planned.

The people who live there now; much as had happened at Hunterview and before that those that lived at the infamous Geneva Towers - will NOT be accommodated in a holistic manner. All sorts of hurdles will be put in their way - Credit Reports which most do not have; other impediments that those at Hunterview are dealing with - now.

Less than five percent of those living now - will be accommodated and the Mayor's Office of Economic Development - Jennifer Matz thinks this is fine. It is the same with the Mayor's Office of Housing and Lee Olson. The same with Tiffany Bohee - who was anointed to be the Director of the Successor Agency of SF Redevelopment Agency - the last three meetings have been announced and cancelled. Why?

Bevan Dufty former Supervisor of District 8 and once in charge under Mayor Willie L. Brown Jr. - as the Director of SF Neighborhood Services. Who; is now in charge of homeless housing and heading the project linked to HOPESF - has been called to address the on going issues and he is trying his best.

I have attended numerous meetings linked to Alice Griffith and its fake development, timelines, and now fake Record of Decision.
Most of the meetings held in an hostile environment; busing indigents in who are not informed; and threats made on those who wanted to help the residents. Now, they can make their bed with the crooks - and if they are adversely impacted - they brought it on themselves.

Espanola Jackson, myself and a few others were first to call for one to one housing. But, we were shut down. There is no way given the present crooks in charge - that the people living at Alice Griffith will be helped. 

The only way is first to remove the entire population from the area to a holistic place. Secondly, to give each one in writing - a legal document - that those remove temporarily will be accommodated and what is more fully - paid for any direct expenses occurred as part of the transaction and program. 

Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has been taken for a ride - the San Francisco Housing Authority has with intent - failed to maintain the existing units - using deferred maintenance   - harassment - and forcing many tenants - who have moved to live with failed plumbing, internal walls peeling with asbestos friables, and failing to treat the tenants with respect - more as human beings.

Folks; like Dwayne Jones and Angelo King - helped Lennar to bus tenants to City Hall who were paid to say things they did not understand. Now, they come to me and say; how they were cheated. This has been the plan of this City and once who are in charge of such ploys - for the longest time ever.

Under the tutorship of City Employees and some of them working for the Mayor's Office of Economic Development and Workforce.

One for sure works for the SF Planning Department, and one works for Malia Cohen the District 10 Supervisors as an aide. All very despicable - and all have BLOOD on their hands.

Based on a fake, rushed Environmental Impact Report - this Record of Decision is so nonchalant that is a slap on the face of the many advocates who have fought for sound housing, clean up of the Hunters Point Shipyard, for sound education, good transportation, open space, childcare, health services - for families who can live in large rooms - two, three, four bed rooms.

Right now raw sewage flows on Caroll Street that borders on one side of Alice Griffith better known as Double Rock. This has been going on for the last ten years plus - we report - and the authorities that be - do not give a rat's ass.

The raw sewage is covered with wood ships mingled with Eucalyptus wood chips to neutralize the stench - but pools of water still stand and when there is heavy rainfall - the diseased water spread over a large area - a health and safety - and what is more adversely impacting any innocent person who happens to come in the vicinity. 

The Polynesian and Black community have been treated with disdain - recently the divisiveness reached an extreme point and stage - where people were shot and killed.

It is in the midst; of such altercations and atrocities - that this Record of Decision (ROD) has been released.

The same thing happened with Parcel A on Hunters Point. A rushed - ROD - followed by many fake meetings.

Things were promised and most nothing - took place - less happened.

On Parcel A - rental units were promised - and amendments made to the Disposition and Development Agreement (DDA). That DDA is in default - timelines that were mentioned and promised - have long gone - and in any other community one could have gone to court - and won millions.

The DDA is a legal mandatory document - and our once fair City had now compromised - and are in bed with a rogue Developer like Lennar. Lennar has its paws into this sordid Alice Griffith Project - and where the Lennar head appears - hell reigns.

The excuse given on the failed DDA at Parcel A - the SF Redevelopment Agency's demise.

The absence and demise of the SF Redevelopment Agency absolves the current developer; Lennar who keep changing their Corporation status - established once as an Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) in Sacramento in 1998 - and now undergone five major changes - a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) in Delaware - where the DEVIL reigns supreme - with the many Credit Card Headquarters - stealing and cheating innocent United States constituents - with high interests rates.

Our SF Planning Department must not permit this ROD to go forward.

The City and Count of San Francisco and one Tiffany Bohee - who is in charge of the Successor Agency to the SF Redevelopment Agency - is cooperating with the Mayor's Office of Housing -  who is hoodwinking the community.

Tiffany Bohee has cancelled the last three meetings linked to the Successor Agency to the SF Redevelopment Agency - where matters such as this ROD - would have come up for discussion.

This woman, Tiffany Bohee has BLOOD on her hands - she has been warned and she can take the warning or forever hold her peace.

The Federal Government has expanded some $300 million - this is not sufficient - you cannot put a price on life - and hundreds of children, women, and men have suffered and died - because they lived at Alice Griffith aka Double Rock - which is a very contaminated area.

Hundreds of buses would be parked just south of Alice Griffith - by Candlestick stadium - buses who brought in the fans from all over the City - with their engine running for hours on end.

The toxic particulates; other contaminants - blowing in the direction of Alice Griffith - at gusts of 30 and 40 miles per hour - this went on for years - until some of us advocates complained - and this nonsense was stopped.

We had cases where Work Orders were taken by SF Housing Authority linked to Alice Griffith units that needed urgent - repairs.

Those who bribed the SF Housing Authority - had their units fixed - the rest had to suffer. Mr Alavarez; a transplant who has no idea of our history; who head the SF Housing Authority; - who is a lackey of City Hall continues to favor such ploys and machinations. 

Bevan Dufty tries to do his best; but true to himself - he too has now fully realized - he is dealing with a bunch of crooks - who will not move fast enough to serve those that need help most.

This Record of Decision is plain hogwash.

That is dirty water from the pigs that stink to high heaven - that City Hall likes to wallow in. 

Remote control - making policies that adversely impact most minorities and indigent people.

No one gave you permission to come into our living rooms to rearrange our furniture - and you continue to do this all the time - lying and promising and doing nothing at all.

Lennar; a Rogue Developers - at one time had a parallel SF Planning Team working side by side with the SF Planning team at 650 Mission Street.

Head of the SF Planning team John Rahaim - head of the evil team doing Lennar's bidding - Dean Macris.

Few know this - so deep is the corruption - fostered by the crooks who are involved in these ploys, machinations, and sordid shenanigans. Go figure.

This project if done right requires over $900 million and the crooks do not have it.

But, really what they are into - is Land Banking - much like what was done at Mission Bay. They have the permits and will divide the land and sell it to those who will do anything to make money - and build inferior homes - where you will not be able to dig in your back yards. You will have to sign a WAIVER - saying that - end of discussion.

Once these DEVILS control drab projects built like what is proposed at Alice Griffith - they will move to take homes that hard working folks have acquired; nearby - and build high rise buildings - high density - and use all the GREED they have - to rake in millions.

There is NO doubt the shine shines on the Bayview - and this is the last frontier - and those the foster and breathe GREED - want  it all. This are the same folks - who speak with a fork tongue. The did it to the Native Americans, they did it to the Black, and now they want to do it to the minorities.

The Black President is in - for four more years - minorities must not permit - these DEVILS to take advantage of us. Look to your ancestors, and use your fortitude and stand your - ground.

Speak up now - or forever hold your peace.

The many Black sell outs - who have created all the divisiveness - must be cast aside.

The few that are left want to ratify the misdeeds - but it will take a lot of sacrifice.

There can be NO love without deep - sacrifice.

Good leaders know the way, show the way, and go the way.

Only the just can take you to a better place - and spirituality reigns supreme in matters like this. Do not give up - Hope for the best and do not be a - sell out. Never.
