The MTA needs hand holding through diversifying the appointment of its Board of Directors so that it is not simply an adjunct of the Mayor's office and parts with resources that should go to transit upon Ed Lee's command so that he can fund his pet projects.
Sting has not been "world class" since the early 1980s.
If you think that BART is having capacity problems, just wait until the Central Subway reaches capacity 30 min after it opens as it has been "value engineered" into near uselessness to save a buck that is destined for Rose Pak's pocket.
Now why, oh why, would the Chamber of Commerce be salivating over a park bond? Because the member firms of the Chamber stand to profit from the contracts that are let. The Chamber supports and benefits from the kind of privatization of our parks that Newsom and Lee have been conducting.San Franciscans need parks that are run for San Francisco residents, not as profit centers for privatization or sweetheart deals for contractors. The best way to stop this corruption is to with hold money from them so that the parasites fall from the host.If these conservatives want to impose less government on average folks and privatize existing facilities, then we can meet them in kind to impose smaller government on them so that they will be relegated to make their money the old fashioned way, in their celebrated vate sector, without special connections to government to get that contract.
Why do they still pay her to flack for the machine?
Tony Hall is not part of the City Family, therefore whatever he does is scrutinized. For those who are part of the City Family and remain in good standing, there are no limits to what the City Family will let members get away with. This is what corruption looks like in San Francisco.
