This lawsuit is related to another lawsuit where Antonio Vaz is a tenant at the Mission Hotel, one of Tenderloin Housing Clinics master leased buildings (the other lawsuit is as an employee)

Some of the earliest complaints date back to 2012, and are easier to read and help explain better how this whole mess started

vaz.v.shaw.7.9.12 by Jeff Webb on Scribd

This is also related and cross referenced in this wrongful eviction case filed by Antonio Vaz and shows some of the underhanded ways Tenderloin Housing Clinic gets rid of undesirable tenants. I’ve repeatedly seen anecdotal evidence that these illegal practices are far more widespread than people realize, especially with pre-existing tenants (which are undesirable – rent controlled)

Randy Shaws Happy Housing #7

Dear Abby, my neighbor keeps yelling he will ‘kill everyone’. Should I not give him the Ginsu knife set?

Krista Gaeta, deputy director of the Tenderloin Housing Clinic, which runs the Jefferson, said some clients are too mentally ill to live in the building, which is overseen by the Human Services Agency. She said “a huge number” belong instead in Direct Access to Housing, which serves a higher-need population.

from SF Public Press

Of course, that’s not stopping Randy Shaw and Tenderloin Housing Clinic from housing them anyway, because Randy Shaw never met a tax dollar he didn’t like

resident falls down elevator shaft at the Mission Hotel

Got this sent to me anonymously so it’s unconfirmed, but this should be investigated especially if Randy Shaws company, Tenderloin Housing Clinic, which master leases the Mission Hotel, is trying to cover it up
——————————————————————————————

Longtime mission hotel resident Charles Davis has been complaining to anyone who would listen that THC has been giving him the shaft for years. He is in his 70’s and blind. he uses a cane combined with his memory to navigate,.

2 or 3 days ago, Mr Davis was headed to an upper floor to visit another resident. as he always does, he tapped his way across the lobby toward the elevator and pushed the call button. Normally he can determine the elevator’s status by the sounds of its machinery. but with the street noise and the lobby often full of residents, its not a perfect system. so after waiting what seemed to be too long, Charles opened to elevator door and remarked ..”you mean I’ve been waiting all this time for an elevator that’s here!”.

He then stepped into he elevator shaft ! There was no car….and as gravity works, a second later Charles was in a heap at the bottom of the elevator shaft (aka: the pit) It was pitch dark. The first residents could only hear his moans coming from the darkness and resorted to using Bic lighters to try to see him. By the grace of God, Charles impacted in a small area without heavy equipment that would have impaled him and the vintage 220 volt electrical equipment that would have killed him if he impacted it. Despite the horrific scene, it was quite apparent what LUCK Charles had.

Its almost unbelievable, but because the Mission Hotel is built over what was Mission Creek, the building has no traditional basement. Consequently, the elevator pit is far less deep than one might expect. Moreover, Charles had the good fortune of entering at the lobby level which limited his fall to about 15 feet . Had he entered on any of the upper floors he likely would have died.

While waiting for emergency services to arrive, Charles managed to communicate that he was hurt but he didn’t think he was seriously injured. With those words, there was a second a sigh of relief from everyone present.. But then it was realized that elevator car, located above the lobby level was still powered and should it descend, the shallow pit design left no spare room and Charles could be crushed before he was rescued.

In the end Charles was successfully rescued. He is bruised and very sore, but he will recover. Amazingly, he did not suffer a single bone break! (tough old goat!)

A couple of interesting points:

A] THC is furiously trying to keep a lid on the story.. in its typical bully-like, classless and crude style There has been much said at the BoS about unsafe SRO elevators in recent times..

B] About a year ago (maybe two) the geniuses in charge at THC dropped their existing (and very well liked) elevator maintenance company Bleythle (sp) (Dan the elevator man)
after more than 12 years for a cheaper company despite the fact THC oversees some the oldest and trickiest elevators anywhere to keep running and Bleythe specializes
on San Francisco’s many antique lifts!

Jane Kim 2014 campaigning inside city funded non profit Tenderloin Housing Clinic

It’s no secret that Randy Shaw and his staff have been big supporters of the Jane Kim in the 2010 campaign. The 2010 Jane Kim campaign was also the subject of a ethics commission probe and was also caught on camera in 2010 campaigning inside this very same Tenderloin Housing Clinic building

In case you think the SRO vote is insignificant, this same article claims Jane Kim won (the SRO vote) over Debra Walker in 2010 by only 140 votes and the SRO vote is the reason Chris Daly got re-elected in 2006

As a result of Randy Shaw allowing Jane Kim to campaign inside his city funded non profit buildings, Randy Shaw must now allow all other District 6 candidates to campaign in all 16 of his master leased SRO’s. Randy Shaw can get into some serious trouble now if he doesn’t allow any other candidate to enter any of his buildings

September 27, 2014, 11:42am – Jane Kim flyers being distributed at the Seneca Hotel, one of Randy Shaws master leased SRO’s in Mid Market, San Francisco. Bonus: One of Randy Shaws own clients calling the team “you’re all backed by the mob”, which would mean his own clients calling Shaw the mob
