“There is no hope of returning to normal for years”
Richie Greenberg, former independent candidate for mayor of San Francisco, California, on SiriusXM Breitbart News Sunday with host Joel Pollack, most of the city’s residents have “no hope of a return” to the normalcy of its “pre-pandemic” status quo.
Greenberg attributed layoffs from the world’s largest tech companies in and around Silicon Valley to San Francisco’s deteriorating economic conditions. He noted that small businesses in San Francisco have been hit even harder by the shutdowns and shutdowns imposed by California state and local governments to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
“Some of the biggest tech companies in the city and the country are laying off tens of thousands of employees,” he noted, “and then for other tech companies with permanent work-from-home plans, etc.no hope of getting back to normal for years and years.
Greenberg added: “There is now a lot of pressure on Mayor London Breed to find a way to revitalize our city centre. At this point, I, my colleagues, and most others in the city do not believe it will return to pre-pandemic conditions.
“We don’t know when it’s going to be back,” he said.
According to Greenberg, the San Francisco City Council is largely run by “Marxists,” “anarchists” and “especially left-wing liberals” who impose “pro-crime” and “criminal” policies. He addressed the status quo of the Tenderloin, an area of the city known for high levels of drug addiction, vagrancy, poverty and homelessness.
“It’s only getting worse,” Greenberg said of the crime and lawlessness in the Tenderloin being ignored by law enforcement and the corresponding increase in the stupidity of those who commit crimes. in the public eye.
He continued: “We have data showing drug overdoses in the last two days. Street vendors don’t even care if there are security cameras. He doesn’t care if the police are passing by. They don’t care about anything obvious. They don’t even hide their faces. There are hundreds of drug dealers active 24 hours a day. Whatever you want, they can work for you in the Tenderloin and beyond.
Drug dealers and drug users operate “non-stop” 24 hours a day, and the “open market” in the Tenderloin, he reiterated.
Breitbart News reports that San Francisco’s city government is considering a race-based “reparations” policy to provide $5 million in lump sum payments to black city residents.
According to Greenberg, such a “racist” government program would further harm San Francisco’s prosperity by driving away businesses and reducing the creation of new businesses.
He said: “No one wants to move to this city or start a business and relocate a company.if it passes because it shows them that [the city is] willing to own one [increased] property tax or a special business tax used to pay for such so-called repairs.
The “Reparations” program “will completely destroy our city,” he concluded. “People would leave.”
