Hi “i am Jack’s Smirking Revenge,” your comment didn’t “disappear,” I simply hadn’t gotten to it yet (there are a lot, and I am going through all while also doing other things). Not sure what other contact you’ve had or attempted to have with TheRoot, but I don’t see any insights or Qs from you on the piece under… Read more
Please share how you know that Breed declined/refused to relinquish her acting mayor and/or BOS president’s seat while campaigning for the full-term slot? I might have missed a public or on the record announcement, if she made one. Also re Feinstein, she was approved by a Board majority to be the interim/acting mayor… Read more
Wow. Sounds familiar, sadly. Thanks for sharing, and for reading.
Thanks for the detailed reply. I have updated re Breed’s district: If she becomes mayor (or even as acting), she would represent BV-HP, in addition to the Fillmore. I moved fast, and blew that in the first post of this. It is now corrected. Thanks for reading.
Uh huh. Is it possible that Breed walked a fine line between a) ‘going with the flow’ of power on the BOS when Lee was mayor from self-preservation (to make sure she would retain appeal to voters beyond her district, which is absolutely necessary, given the dynamism of the city’s population in the past decade, and b)… Read more
What does your question mean? If you’re referring to the Alicia Garza quote, nope. I pulled Garza’s tweet because it happened to very succinctly capture a close approximation of MY OWN OPINION. Thanks for reading!
Hi — I moved too fast. I am aware that London as a supervisor represents the Fillmore, not Bayview-HP; I have corrected the piece. As for the rest of your comment, thanks for sharing your opinion. I totally disagree. And I am pretty put off by your suggesting I am ‘assuming’ that Breed will be a good mayor just… Read more
Um hm. I don’t like to assume things so I will ask you again to please provide links. Also, while I appreciate your mentioning these “other sources,” it is actually more interesting to know how and what YOU yourself make of this. It’s pretty easy to hide behind “what others” are saying or writing, versus sharing your… Read more
See my comment above in this thread re the ‘technical’ aspects that the 6 supervisors supposedly cited for part of their reason to oust London. All that “Committee” stuff is BS. Breed’s situation was very nearly an exact mirror of Feinstein’s back in ‘78. As for the data you dropped re the many SF residents who… Read more
I’ve read the AP report that I think you’re referring to — it was published in the NYTimes. Have also read all the ‘local’ coverage, from the SF Chron, to Mission Local to 48Hills and such. Here is the thing: San Francisco has always been at best a mediocre news market, i.e., not fielding kick-ass investigative units… Read more
Sigh. Sorry you’re in the midst of it. It can be very discombulating, as it is basically gaslighting. The micro-aggressions happen in lots of settings in San Francisco. Like I said, it is my hometown. I have lived it.
