SF BOARD OF SUPERVISORS CONDONE CORRUPTION
There was a time in the history of San Francisco when the whole Board of Supervisors (BOS) were taken to court and charged with corruption. December 7, 2004 will be a day recorded as one of those days when those Supervisors fully cognizant of corruption and bribes voted to permit Lennar BVHP LLC to proceed with its tainted projects on Parcel A which is on Hunters Point Shipyard in District 10.
On December 6, 2004 the most corrupt and on the take Supervisor Sophie Maxwell initiated over a dozen agenda items to confuse the constituents. All the agenda items were linked to benefit the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency (SFRA) and Lennar BVHP LLC.
The constituents who had to sit for over 6 hours in the BOS chamber to speak on the agenda items. They were confused and tired out before they could address Supervisors Jake McGoldrick (who loves to run his mouth), Aaron Peskin who has ties with Larry Florin and who works with Lennar BVHP LLC, and Sophie Maxwell who was openly smooching Roy Willis the chief facilitator and modus operandi of all that Lennar BVHP LLC stands for in the last 5 years.
Micheal Cohen keeps repeating the same speech with tainted misinformation before the SF Health Commission, the SF Redevelopment Commission, the Planning Commission, the Building Inspection Commission, the Land Use Committee, and the SF Board of Supervisors. It is a long litany of disinformation tainted with half-baked truths all laced with undertones of trying to help the community and the better interests of the City and County of San Francisco. The fact of the matter is - this tainted project is meant to help some CROOKS.
The folks who live in Public Housing next to the Shipyard were not present when behind their backs and in their name the deal was made to go through by the 3 Supervisors holding the Land Use Committee. At this same Land Use Committee the Residential Builders Association had earlier stated for over 5 hours that Sophie Maxwell was dumb and corrupt. These mostly White small developers promised to oust her. The world knows the plain truth is that only a handful of crooks will profit from the plans. It is wrong to building 1600 housing units in the middle of a toxic dump. Serious issues related to radiation, methane gas, liquefaction, no archeological survey where once abounded two shellmounds, the Precautionary Principle, the Mather Ordinance, quality CEQA findings, and a host of other serious issues which have all been shoved aside and diluted in the name of GREED.
Mayor Gavin Newsom has chosen to side with Lennar BVHP LLC because of Nancy Pelosi and her stepson who has direct connection with Lennar BVHP LLC. Thugs have been paid and are being paid to attend meetings. Even the Examiner reported on Dec 3 and Dec 7, 2004 how bums, drunks, and people out on a limb were promised jobs and told to come to City Hall to be bribed. Supervisor Chris Daly related these facts to the full Board of Supervisors. The only other Supervisor who backed Chris Daly's statement was Matt Gonzalez the Board President.
The rest of the Supervisors Jake McGoldrick, Tom Ammiano, Sophie Mazxwell, Alioto-Pier, Bevan Dufty, Fiona Ma, Gerardo Sandoval, Sean Elsbernd and Aaron Peskin with ties to Larry Florin all voted in favor of Lennar and the insipid machinations linked to bribes and corruption. It is indeed a sad day when in the most August Chamber such despicable acts are condoned against all Ethics.
During Public Comment against great odds I managed to convey to the Board of Supervisors my disdain for the actions of the day. Time will tell. Sophie Maxwell has a track record of being dumb on issues. It is just a matter of time when she will be brought before the Court of Justice for actions that demand justice. Twice she has been recalled and twice - the San Francisco Elections Department has rescued her. The third time may be a charm - to oust this woman for all that she has done to the detriment of the constituents from District 10 and the City.
As to the 8 Supervisors who would never ever have voted for the agenda items if it were in a White Community - shame on you. You have the blood of the infants that are dying and those who will die in the future because of your stupid actions. The people of San Francisco will remember the day you all betrayed them. You will have to live with your tainted conscience for the rest of your life.
