From late January to mid-March, I sent four e-mails to the mayor. When I got neither a response nor even an acknowledgment, I hand-carried a letter to City Hall, enclosing the unresponsive e-mails … but still no response.
My question dealt with the mobile recycling program, authorized in 2016 but still not implemented. I merely asked when this long-overdue program would be operating.
I don’t understand why the mayor, or the mayor’s staff, feel free to ignore tax payers by not even acknowledging communications.
The mobile recycling program is sorely needed. More than 90% of San Francisco residents live nowhere near a recycling service. We are paying a cost at the register for bottles and cans and we deserve the benefits of recycling. Five years of inactivity in implementing program, and unresponsiveness to questions, creates a cynical attitude toward government.
I hope that this subject matter interests you enough to do a story. I can provide you with copies of the four ignored e-mails if you like.
