The paid agitators and sycophants will be there to try to diminish the request for equality and equitable treatment of the SoMa Waterfront, giving us a legitimate community input process instead of the mockery of community meetings where the communications are just one-way, asynchronous talking with no listening to the residents by the City elected and employees who work for the residents.
The Memorandum of Understanding for the criteria regarding increases in client numbers timelines, renewal of the lease, and other important details was just released on Friday, April 19, 2019 – everybody works all week just to read this kind of stuff on the weekend, right? If we had a democracy in San Francisco instead of dictatorship in practice, the community would have at least one week to review the Memorandum of Understanding and a chance to provide feedback on the weaknesses and risks/dangers/costs to the Port of our Port Commissioners naively and prematurely approving it. This is just as bad as Donald Trump – all aimed at self-preservation at the ballot box, in my personal opinion.
Keep fighting the good fight to stop geographic discrimination, to have a more equitable community input process for the proposed shelter at Seawall Lot 330 instead of the attempted steamrolling, and absolutely vote against those promoting such awful governance practices that a more similar to a dictatorship than a democracy as we’re seeing right now. Just vote NO.
