    Nobody looked at the rail as the supplies were first brought on site? Does Muni have no one who oversees materials used on this project? Amateurs!

    When Scott Weiner wrote “San Francisco Should Always Have a Subway Under Construction,” I fear he wasn’t specific enough in specifying that we should keep building new subways, instead of continually constructing the same one.

  • Amateurs getting professionals salaries. Clearly, there wasn’t an inspection as the materials arrived. Makes me want to question the concrete that was poured, the steel rods in the station columns, etc.

  • Maybe Scott was referring to the QSR chain, but don’t certain neighborhoods have bans on chains?

    Indeed so. These public sector slackers should be PURGED, and the construction contractors banned from ever bidding on public work. (a principal in a crooked auto dealership was permanently banned from being financially involved in auto sales as part of his parole conditions IINM)
