Chiu lauded for push to give Entertainment Commission teeth

The California Music and Culture Association applauded Supervisor David Chiu’s move to empower the Entertainment Commission and give it the ability to revoke entertainment permits on issues related to public safety and public nuisance. Chiu on Tuesday introduced legislation that would ensure that entertainment community and government agencies work together to support effective entertainment regulations and safe neighborhoods.

“This legislation is essential for the entertainment industry, which overwhelmingly employs responsible business practices and supports safe venues for entertainment,” said Sean Manchester, CMAC’s board president. “A thriving entertainment industry contributes significantly to San Francisco’s economy, driving tourism, providing jobs and generating tax revenue for city services.”
