Let me tell you, if you ever get a chance to visit Recology at 50 California, well, their offices are fantastic.
And everybody’s so friendly – you’ll have gaggle of attractivas in the their 20’s and 30’s coming up to you to just say hi, just like you’re a rock star or a Nordstrom’s customer or something.
And the party swag, don’t get me started on the party swag.
Anyway, guess who showed up at today’s Run Ed Run rally at City Hall. It’s the melon-farming Recology garbage truck! See?
“In the summer of 1999, Lee, who had been tapped by Brown to head the Department of Public Works in 1996, came under public criticism after proposing a 44 percent rate hike for residential garbage collection. Although the rate was lower than the 52 percent hike proposed by Norcal (as Recology was then known), it was substantially higher than the 20 percent increase recommended by his staff, said Quentin Kopp, a former supervisor and state senator and a retired judge who advocated against the rate hike at the time.”
Doesn’t Recology know enough to not to have their trucks roll down Polk Street during an Ed Lee rally, you know, at this particular juncture?
