When NIMBYs Attack: Richmond District Kerfuffle Regarding the Jack in the Box on Geary Makes the Sainted Wall Street Journal

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Here’s the question: Is Chris Rillo, ERISA attorney and part-time Richmond District resident, a NIMBY? Let’s look at the evidence:

“Mr. Rillo and his wife are both long-term residents and homeowners in the Richmond district who have worked hard advocating for the safety of our neighborhood.”

(Signs point to YES.)

Anyway, NIMBY Chris Rillo et ux are going to have a harder time NIMBYing against beloved local institutions such as our late-night J-in-the-B. See?

Apparently, Chris Rillo tried to “intimate” District One Supervisor Eric Mar:

“When the captain called to tell me he was relieving me from the board, I asked whether it was for a cause,” Rillo said. “He simply stated he had the right to constitute members of the board and assured me there was no cause. I was startled when he reported a cause that night, that I supposedly intimated Supervisor Mar.”

Uh, I think that’s spelled intimidated, Counselor.

No matter, this incident will serve to keep our local millionaire NIMBYs down, so that’s good.

Hooray!
