  • Re: Newsom Says Streetsblog’s Parking Story is “Factually Incorrect,” Says “Blogs Often Are”

    From the Examiner article:

    “No one wants to extend parking meter hours, including Muni, he said.

    Also, there’s a study on extending meters that is soon to be released that analyzes how to do so without making everyone angry.”

    No one wants to extend hours, but there is a study on about how to do it??

    Then again, Newsom sometimes lies. Politicians often do.
