Sandoval: Button the non-English lip
July 11, 2006
Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval today calls on the Board of Supervisors
to establish English as the official San Francisco language.
The District 11 supervisor, representing predominantly Latino
neighborhoods, lampoons state and national English-only efforts
by further suggesting City libraries rid their shelves of books
not written "in the Bard's tongue."
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors will consider the resolution
at today's 2:00 p.m. meeting.
Sandoval asks all City and County workers to restrain themselves
to speaking Shakespearean English, and urges non-documented workers
be barred from purchasing San Francisco condominium or Tenancy-In-Common
