San Franciscans Threaten Lawsuit over Homeless Shelter


“People want us to address the challenges on our streets and help our unsheltered residents into housing, and I am committed to doing the hard work to make that happen,” the San Francisco mayor, London Breed, said in a statement given to the San Francisco Chronicle.

“But it’s incredibly frustrating and disappointing that as soon as we put forward a solution to build a new shelter, people begin to threaten legal action,” she added.

The money raised will be paid to a local real estate attorney named Andrew Zacks, who advocates on behalf of the rights of property owners and last made the news in 2017, when he defended a San Francisco property owner who tripled the rent on his tenants, from $1,900 to $6,700.

The 2.3 acre vacant lot just beneath the Bay Bridge, on San Francisco’s eastern shore, seemed the perfect spot for a new temporary shelter, which would add 200 beds.

But, situated close to tourist attractions, seaside bike lanes, and – most notably – neighborhoods filled with million-dollar-homes and condos, the site was primed for local pushback.

    Pelosi’s crazy luv district of course. More liberal evil.

    Liberals would rather see homeless on street than dare have a shelter in their backyard.

    I have to be honest, is this the best place for a shelter, on the waterfront?
    Is that where the homeless are?
    Based on pictures I’ve seen, they’re not on the waterfront.
    Maybe they ought to build it next to City Hall.
