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

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

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:

The San Francisco Bomb Squad is Having a Busy 2009

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

The San Francisco Bomb Squad seems to be having a busy 2009 already, non? Yesterday evening, another incident backed up traffic quite a bit in the area around Kezar Stadium, with a parade of blocked vehicles reaching all the way to the interesting intersection of Fell and Masonic.

SFWeekly Snitch Matthew Smith has some info about the large blast that resulted.  

When the bomb squad doesn’t send in the robot, they have the option to use this guy. It takes quite a while to get this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle outfit on. Click to expand:  

Have a safe 2009.

[UPDATE: Apparently, the suspicious object wasn’t that suspicious at all.]
