In San Francisco, plans are already in the works for housing, transit, and other expensive infrastructure in the Southeast part of the city. It is mindbogglingly shortsighted of "progressives" like Daly to want to stop this kind of project that will do nothing short of accelerate and fund construction of these projects, getting people who need housing into it faster, and getting them where they're going faster. During Daly's disastrous tenure on our city's Board of Supervisors, he did nothing but stymie real progress in this city. Now as a suburbanite, he wants to continue his record of stagnation.
This is not the America's Cup. This is not building housing only for the rich or the gentry. This is about getting low-income and working-class people into homes in the Southeast and improving transit and infrastructure for all, and using a catalyst like the Olympics to do it within our lifetime.
We should know this Thursday if San Francisco has been chosen as the USA's Olympic bid city. More on the Olympics bid at SFGate.
