SF: don’t displace 15 vets!

SF’s progressive newspaper 48 Hills on October 3 ran an editorial urging the city not to displace 15 vets (like John Brown, pictured to the left) from their Bayview apartments because their landlord, Judy Wu, is being sued by the City Attorney for allegedly adding their units illegally. The city says the units have to be demolished. The tenants should not be punished for what the landlord supposedly did. They have nowhere to go. The simply solution, as the editorial points out, is to legalize the units and let the vets stay. The Planning Commission at its Thursday, October 5 meeting decided to continue the case to December 21 to hopefully give the city and advocates time to work out a way to avoid any displacements. Housing Rights Committee does not want the vets displaced or their units demolished.
