Not surprisingly, the San Francisco Supes rejected Newsom’s sit-lie law, the so called “Civil Sidewalks Ordinance” 8-to-3:
For: Supervisors Sean Elsbernd, Michela Alioto-Pier, and Carmen Chu
Against: Supervisors Eric Mar, David Chiu, Ross Mirkarimi, Chris Daly, Bevan Dufty, David Campos, Sophie Maxwell, and John Avalos
Thanks for nothing Haight-Ashbury Supe Mirkarimi. Now it’s up to the citizens of the city to decide what they want to do with their sidewalks. How about, instead of an ordinance, the City hands out clubs, maces, and shillelaghs? Let the residents figure it out. Gonna be a long summer.
