Newsom discounts Daly's opposition

As the vote at the Board of Supervisors for a deal to bring the America's Cup sailing race to San Francisco neared, Mayor Gavin Newsom discounted the opposition by Supervisor Chris Daly.

“Who? I mean, seriously. I mean who?” Newsom told The San Francisco Examiner on Saturday when asked about Daly's opposition to the event. “Every serious person on the board is committed and working hard on it and understands the thousands and thousands of jobs that can be created and the hundreds of millions of economic benefit that goes right into The City's general fund that helps support the programs we all care about.”

The item to support the America's Cup race is before the Land Use and Economic Development Committee on Monday at 1 p.m. Daly does not sit on that committee. If approved, it could be heard by the full Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.
