Hell Yes: Senator Leland Yee Goes After the SFMTA for Approving Nat Ford’s $400k “Golden Parachute”

Here’s the news from Your Senator Leland Yee, the current front-runner in the race to become Your Next Mayor:

“SAN FRANCISCO – Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) issued the following statement in response to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency approving a $384,000 severance package for their outgoing executive director:

I am deeply disappointed that MTA would approve a nearly $400,000 golden parachute for an outgoing city executive. At a time when our budget is cutting critical social services for our kids and the most vulnerable in our city, we can ill-afford to be paying excessive payouts to administrators who are no longer working for the public. I have fought these exorbitant sweetheart deals at UC and CSU, and as mayor I will reform these practices.”

OK then.

WWMD with the SFMTA?

This was the one I was thinking of originally:

    Oh lord. If you really think Yee cares one bit about this issue, then I have a bridge to sell you.

    Throughout his life Yee has been wheeling and dealing like this. And now, just because he wants to become mayor, he’s putting on a holier-than-thou attitude.

    Why doesn’t he do something about it? Why doesn’t he put forth a bill in Sacto which would strip Ford of this payment?
