Candlestick Stadium - in days past.
Candlestick Stadium - torn down!
Mayor Edwim M. Lee is one of those Mayors that props up - a clown - who speaks from both sides of his mouth - falling in the trap - and compromising Quality of Life issues - without having a clue - what a "clown" he is.
Here is a study that spells it out for those that dream of owning a home in San Francisco - where once in the 1960's you could own a good home for $120,000 in the 1970's for $300,000 - now, those same homes going for $2 million if not more.
Here is the study:
Things in the housing arena have got out of control.
Today - thousands of decent, hard working, tax paying San Franciscans - are leaving San Francisco in droves - going to places they do not want to go - but, do go - just because they can pay reasonable rent - or buy a home.
Of course Mayor Edwin M. Lee and his minions are busy - cutting ribbons - while all around him - people are suffering - children are suffering and our Seniors are suffering - more.
His recent Budget speech made before the San Francisco Board of Supervisors - is simply - hog wash.
We have no one to challenge him among the SF Board of Supervisors.
The one of two that say something - border on language that is convoluted and subjects that are not pertinent.
You have the usual suspects and sell out - London Breed, Scott Wiener, Malia Cohen, Julie Christensen, and Katy Tang - one worse than the other.
The people UNITED shut down City Hall twice in recent months.
On both occasions the Mayor fled City Hall - and London Breed who is the President of the SF Board of Supervisors - got a mouthful from the constituents of San Francisco.
So did Malia Cohen, Scott Wiener. Julie Christensen, and Katy Tang.
These five - good for nothing SF Supervisors - do not represent - they work with entities that are detrimental to what is good for San Francisco - and work against those that have built San Francisco.
San Francisco is known for its neighborhoods - and the unique characteristics of each neighborhood.
Slowly we see - the intrusion of bland and mundane entities - who want to benefit from the good that has been built before.
They do not want to contribute to the building of the good - nor build on the good - and take our neighborhoods to a better, place.
Daily the congestion on our roads is becoming unbearable.
It is worse if your travel by car. MUNI transportation during speak hours - tests your patience.
This is shown by the passengers - who are so angry - that fights start - and innocent passengers are put in harms way.
Some promise was made by Mayor Edwin M. Lee and the Supervisors to take Public Transportation - proved futile.
With the exception of one Supervisor - no one else had anything much to show - in terms of representation and keeping their promise - commitment to the people.
In the Southeast Sector of San Francisco - there is land - and it is prone to severe liquefaction and flooding.
Mayor Edwin M. Lee talks from both sides of his mouth and is promising to build - 30,000 units - on contaminated land.
10,000 of these units are Public Housing that he wants to rehabilitate.
Really speaking they should be torn down - and the infrastructure should be built from scratch.
The Mayor knows this - but he has chosen to hoodwink the public - with promises that will do no where.
The Mayor has chosen the corrupt John Stewart Company, Mercy Housing and Bridge Developers - who build these so called affordable housing - but with the present financial crises - most everything will come to a halt.
It happened in 2008 and it will happen now.
The area around Candlestick Stadium is contaminated - much like Treasure Island is contaminated, much like Parcel A at Hunters Point is contaminated.
The Mayor talks about these areas - as if they were mitigated and abated.
The Mayor has NO conscience - he talks a good fake talk - but has failed on all important counts - housing, transportation, education, safety, childcare, crime, increasing the Carbon Footprint - and more.
Mayor Edwin M. Lee is known in most circles as a clown.
He should now wear a red ball on his nose - and give himself some Kudos - as the first Mayor who clowns around 24/7 - in a major City that is going to the - dogs.
