Newsom chats West Portal condo conversion, pension reform 

Pension reform and soccer fields are among the burning issues of city residents who met with Mayor Gavin Newsom during individual meetings last week at the West Portal Playground rec center.

Residents who were granted 15 minutes with the mayor talked about there being too many middle managers in city government, the quality of soccer fields, the fact that there is no opt-out for PG&E smart meters, the budget, pension reform and the always thorny topic of condo conversion.

Newsom continues to get out into the community to talk with people that his spokesman Tony Winnicker recently referred to as “the silent majority of San Francisco residents” who “never have the opportunity or time to come to City Hall to attend a public hearing in middle of week.”
