Sen. Dianne Feinstein is coming down hard on the side of Presidio Terrace residents outraged that San Francisco sold their gated, private street to a South Bay couple.
Feinstein, who lived in Presidio Terrace for more than 20 years, wants the Board of Supervisors to take the unprecedented step of overturning a tax-default sale that delivered the neighborhood’s common areas to the young couple. It was bureaucratic bungling by the city’s treasurer-tax collector’s office, she said, that resulted in residents’ failure to pay property taxes on the street and sidewalks for three decades.
The state’s senior senator told the supervisors in a letter mailed Monday that her first reaction to the news that the street had been sold for $90,100 was one of “near disbelief.”
Can you blame her? She’s rich, and clearly has come to believe that the rule of law does not apply to her.
