@Guest: It looks like everyone will have to find a new hobby.
@Ingmar Bergman: First of all Ms. Brubaker isn't "backing silently out of the room".
You ask, why not go "the final mile"? What makes you think that this snafu is in "the final mile"? It was on the petition of the aggrieved Mr. Anonymous that proceedings scheduled for last month were delayed.
I've asked questions about the situation, and as indicated by testimonials here, the answers are easy to find. Brubaker is a hero. Anonymous is a troll. The only way of combatting trolls is to take away their food. Unfortunately the SF Sunshine Ordinance provides trolls with free food.
There's longtime and there's longtime ago. IMDB will easily show you which is which.
The questions should be about the San Francisco Sunshine Law, especially when it comes to things like commissions that include industry professionals. Anyone with a bone to pick can anonymously initiate a witch-hunt by filing a complaint. That complaint can automatically initiate investigations and hearings. It's a troll magnet. Commissioners generally get little or no compensation for their time and hard work trying to draw film production to SF. Sure there needs to be mechanisms to see that there isn't any abuse of influence, but witch-hunts are not the answer. If you think the San Francisco Film Commission doles out lucrative jobs or has any huge amount of influence among Hollywood decision-makers you are sadly mistaken.
@rick: I believe members of the San Francisco Film Commission are unpaid volunteers.
