Joanna Rees Can’t Afford Her Mayoral Run But She CAN Afford a Security Guard To Keep People Off Her Street?

Apparently.

Ms. Rees’s problem is money. She has it. (She and her husband, her partner in a venture capital firm that is now being dismantled, live in Presidio Terrace, a gated enclave with uniformed guards.) But she has, as yet, refused to spend it. Though she stands to collect as much as $900,000 in public financing by agreeing to campaign-spending caps, Ms. Rees herself has not yet contributed a single dollar. And under the campaign-spending caps, none of her well-heeled contributors can give more than $500.”

Ah yes, Presidio “restrictive covenants” Terrace.

Now, shouldn’t every “community” be gated?

Sure, why not?

    Are “security” guards a new addition to Presidio Terrace District ghetto?
    I remember driving that loop in old belching MG not long ago. Of course Feinstein wasn’t quite so obvious back then about stuffing her coffers with ducats made from the business of war, misery and general mayhem disguised as the “War on Terror”.

    Yeah, that’s been a private street since inception, AFAIK.

    Security presence probably has waxed and waned over the decades. I’m sure that some residents strongly oppose paying for security. I notice them most on the weekends. I think the residents don’t want the place to be on the tourist loop. Back in the day, I’d drive mom’s taxi, 8-passenger model, on that street so people could ooh and aah at the houses. Never saw guards back 5-10 years ago but I don’t have all the facts…
