Ma wields gavel as honorary Board President
Former District 4 Supervisor Fiona Ma is headed for the California
State Assembly in Sacramento and spent her last moments at City
Hall, Tuesday, in the high priestess' chair wielding the President's
Honorary Board President Fiona Ma
Supervisors honored Ma's tenure on the Board one by one, showering
Ma with appreciation for her ability to work through issues.
Ma aide Bill Barnes, instrumental in helping Ma win election
to the assembly, will join Ma in Sacramento as senior aide.
Newsom said to be "bad mouthing" Dufty over foot
Supervisor Dufty, noted for his support of legislative efforts
to stem violent crime and for voting his conscience, is now being
defamed, we're told, "all over town" by Newsom.
Let it be understood, politics is not about the people anymore
when politicians expect blind loyalty at the expense of constituent
The kicker is had Dufty flip-flopped to sustain Newsom's veto,
the veto would have failed 8-3 anyway, so why make matters worse?
Mayor Gavin Newsom in a contemplative state of reflection
On top of losing the 49ers, the 2016 Olympics bid, District 6
and District 4 to non-Room 200 backed candidates; Newsom has now
solidified Dufty's independence on all future votes.
Brown outs anonymous posters
Fog City Journal columnist h Brown today sent out a missive exposing
members of the secret society of anonymous posters at the right
Posters SFSweetie, Marcel Deste and Chuck Revisited are among
San Francisco's Court
Jester will be interviewed by Arthur Bruzzone - a recipient
of Brown's blasts - on this very subject and may include anonymous
poster exposure by name.
Look for Bruzzone and Brown to generate high viewership ratings,
especially if Brown takes off the gloves on Matt Gonzalez.
