I would like to suggest that all/most public trash receptacles be removed from the Richmond District.
We have an exciting slate of virtual and on-site events this spring to complement the exhibition, which I thought might be of interest to you and your readers.
These gardens have given us so much, especially in the last two years. This is a great time to give them the tools and organizational structure they need to be successful so they can keep serving all of us and our planet for decades to come
In her latest “Commentary,” San Francisco Supervisor Connie Chan maintains that she is an acolyte of John McClaren’s concept of Golden Gate Park as a sanctuary from the hubbub of urban life and against the concept of “pay-to-play.” Yet, ironically, she ends up endorsing commercialization and steep admission fees.
When I talk to the “Keep-JFK-Drive-closed” folks, they often end up agreeing that a compromise is a good solution.
I look forward to Quentin L. Kopp’s monthly Commentary such as in the February 2022 issue: Recalls and Recology. Each monthly Commentary is the result of much knowledge, experience and research
Here is an article by Heather Knight in the SF Chronicle and another OpEd piece by Matt Gonzalez in which he articulates his reasons for supporting the Feb. 15 recall of three Board of Education commissioners.
The SF Board of Education is up to more shenanigans, now creating a new zone-based school assignment policy that focuses more on neighborhoods but assesses the block-by-block racial/income/English proficiency make-up of zones.
We have elections, people elected these three members and now we have a group of millionaires funding this recall. Just like the money the State wasted on a recall of Gov. Gavin Newsom by another group of Republican millionaires.
Recently my wife and I came home from a week away to find our street corner partially demolished once again. We have lived about a block away, south from the Taraval Post Office, since 1972. This is the fifth time since about 1980 that our corner has been jackhammered and handicap ramps installed and or reinstalled.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the commentary by Julie Pitta in the January issue. She is a breath of fresh air.
While I neither voted for nor supported the three individuals up for recall, and while I strongly disagree with many of their positions — such as spending a million dollars to paint over a WPA socially critical historical fresco painted by an Ashkenazic immigrant — they do not deserve recall. This is a misguided effort.
I totally agree with Steve Moran, whose letter to the editor in January’s Richmond Review says “Closure of the Upper Great Highway, at all, is idiotic.”
I confess to surprise verging on shock that the January issues of the Richmond Review and Sunset Beacon newspapers would abuse its public trust by marshaling its reporting staff to manipulate public opinion on a subject on which the public has diverse views.
During the past few months, the District 1 supervisor has initiated a landmarks nomination process for Lincoln Park.
