The People Behind the Big Project at Pier 70 are DESPERATE for Your Approval – Here are the Sweeteners They’re Offering!

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Or you know, what they’re planning on offering. That’s my conclusion after editing the below, which is what “FM3″ Polling is asking San Francisco voters about these days. Or rather, what you can see below is about 85% of what FM3 is asking people, more or less.

So they’re like, what will it take to get you to support our scheme for Pier 70? You want more below market rate units, you want lower height limits, you want more space for parks, you want an artist colony, JUST TELL US WHAT YOU WANT BEFORE YOU GO ALL 8 WASHINGTON ON US,  OH OH AAAAAAAAURGH!!!! You know, more or less.

Oh, and apparently, there’s a new evil meanie ID’ed as the Great Enemy of the Willie Newsom/ Gavin Lee/ Ed Brown administration. It used to be “six-foot white boy” Supervisor Chris Daly, and then it was Board of Supervisors President Aaron Peskin, but now it’s Mayor Art Agnos. (The Establishment thinks he’s too old to be working the city fighting over height limitations. The Establishment wonders why he’s not out playing golf these days.)

Here it is:

“From FM3:
1. Would you say that say that SF is heading in the right direction or not?
2. Pier 70 is taking existing 40 foot maximum up to 90 feet, support or not?
3. Would adding these following things to the description help?
7 acres of new space for arts,
new units at potrero,
jobs,
more BMR units
5. The limit now is 40 feet. What would you say to 120, or 90, or 65 feet?
6. How many BMR units do you think P70 should have? 100, 200, 400, 750?
7. What if the Builders made more BMR units than required? What about double, triple?
8. Inclined to trust the following or not?
Art Agnos
Potrero Hill Boosters
Tony Kelly
No Wall on the Waterfront
Democratic Party
Pier 70 Artists
Malia Cohen
Dogpatch Neighborhood Assoc.
9. How long have you lived in SF?
10. How much do you make?
11. Race?
12. Sexual orientation?”

Cold Busted: SFPD Arrests Sexual Assault Suspect Just Two Weeks Before Statute of Limitations Bar

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Nine years and something months later, the SFPD makes an arrest:

SFPD ARREST SUSPECT IN 10 YEAR OLD BRUTAL COLD CASE SEXUAL ASSAULT
11-103 Posted Date: 9/27/2011

The San Francisco Police Department’s Sex Crimes Detail Cold Case Unit made an arrest in a 10 year old sexual assault case. The incident occurred on November 6, 2001 in San Francisco, CA and the suspect was arrested on September 26, 2011 in San Jose, CA. The victim in this incident was offered a ride from the Mission District to her home. The three suspects then drove with the victim to Golden Gate Park and parked their car in an isolated dark area of the park were they sexually assaulted and robbed her. The victim was then ordered out of the suspect vehicle and had to flag down a passing motorist for assistance.

Due to the diligent work of the Sex Crimes Unit and Violence Reduction Team, in addition to the advent in today’s technology, the San Francisco Police Department was able to identify the suspect as Vinh Q. Chung, Vietnamese, Male, 10/26/1981. Chung was taken into custody at his home by members of the San Francisco Police Department’s Violent Reduction Team. He is currently being held at the County Jail in lieu of 5 million dollars bail.” 

How about that?
