a while back i mentioned that lennar corp a big home builder had been awarded the rights to develope several closed govt facilities....mare island, hunters point....i mentioned their advance man was laurence pelosi.....i mention that he was related to nancy pelosi.... so now Nancy's pet company, lennar has violated all sorts of toxic clean up rules, discrimination....yep the democrats pet companies are saints.... http://www.fogcityjournal.com/news_in_brief/kirshenbaum_061029.shtml The other troubling problem is that we citizens get no substantial say in the matter, even when we know what is transpiring. We may have elected Pelosi and Newsom, but we didn't intend to cast votes for their relatives, too. Or their friends. Or their funders. And if there are certain players who are enriching themselves so handily with our public property, it wouldn't hurt to have a lot more transparency in the process. http://www.fogcityjournal.com/news_in_brief/kirshenbaum_070317.shtml The case creates political implications on a number of levels, which may make things awkward for Mayor Gavin Newsom. One of the plaintiffs in the case is a mayoral appointee to the Fire Commission. Plaintiffs' attorney Angela Alioto plays a role in the Newsom administration. And finally, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is involved in Lennar's local projects.
