SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE -- San Francisco State University Political Science Professor Jason McDaniel said Mar deserves credit for taking on an entrenched group of homeowners who have nothing to gain from the development going forward.

“There is a reason why this is the first affordable housing development in that area,” McDaniel said. “That is the hardest thing for a politicians to do — to impose short-term costs on a powerful group of constituents in exchange for something that will benefit the whole city over the long term.”
