at the same time the mayor is proposing firing 10,000 city workers to save 50 million…………..
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors are set to approve 82 Million dollar budget for Randy Shaw and Tenderloin Housing Clinic for the next 5 years. The meeting is at the Board of Supervisors, Wednesday, February 10, 11:am (item 2 on the agenda)
. This is the first time THC’s contract appears before the BOS because it exceeds 10 Million. Previously, the contracts were for around 6 million approved directly by the Department of Human Services. It should be noted that THC also receives federal funding on top of this city contract

Randy Shaw plunder continues?
boys and girls,
Y’all know that tomorrow the Board’s Budget and Finance
Committee will likely give Randy Shaw and his THC (Tenderloin
Housing Corp.)an income stream for the next 5 years?
Yep, they wanna give him $82 million. The … let’s do
this right …

Item #2 Mayor pays off Randy Shaw for various returned favors
Randy induced Jane Kim to move into District 6 in order
to weaken Debra Walker in a Progressive field that is led by my
favored candidate, Jim (no drama) Meko. Shaw and the Mayor
both hate Walker because she stood up to Shaw and broke his
and Joe O’Donoghue’s control of the DBI Commission. That’s
Shaw. The Mayor’s people hate her because they don’t trust
her to be the rubber stamp for them that Theresa Sparks will
be (flash – Sparks is refusing to attend the first D-6 candidates’
forum hosted by a James Tracy group – reverse ‘Willie Brown/
Ammiano strategy’? … they know she’ll play badly on the
stage with the likes of Walker and Meko and with h. brown having
a paid ticket too) … thing is, Kim let it be known that she
was ready to ditch the SF scene and head for a job with a top
law firm in D.C. and Shaw cynically decided that Kim would be
a great candidate to suck votes off Walker) …
I have it on good authority that Randy got called into the Mayor’s
office a few years back where he was berated and threatened by
Chief of Staff, Steve Kawa. This goes back aways but the message
was … drop your ties to Joe O’Donoghue or we drop you.
Well, that worked out well for both the Mayor and Shaw. Randy
may now actually be the number one poverty pimp in SF and there’s
Shaw’s sidekick, Paul Hogarth actually wrote an editorial in
Shaw’s City supported news rag, Beyond Chron urging the Progressives
to not run any candidates against Newsom in 2007 and trust the
charity of the Mayor (it works great for Hogarth and Shaw).
This guy’s got a political machine funded by the City is what I’m
saying and he should have a thorough audit and investigation before
he’s given another dime. A 5 1/2 year contract? In the words of
a great statesman: “Fuck You!!!”
