FOGG Open Letter – November 25, 2014

A VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU ALL!

FOGG, thanks to our volunteers and many others, has much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving Day.

With the great campaign led by our NO WALL ON THE WATERFRONT partners, many community members, and the voters of San Francisco, the proposed 8 Washington Street high rise luxury condominium development went down to an ignominious defeat at the polls in November, 2013.

We are forever thankful for the successful work on our behalf by our three attorneys; Sue Hestor, Louise Renne, and Susan Brandt-Hawley. They’ve been outstanding in preparing the critical legal work needed to confront the developers. While lawsuits are still pending, their research and legal smarts have been invaluable.

Thanks to The Bay Club at The Gateway management and Summer Kids Camps staff for their cooperation in providing one scholarship for everyone FOGG and you, our donors, provided. It was a successful and fun filled Summer Kids Camps for these youngsters from low income housing. (more…)
