SF Bay Guardian on Jack Spade in the Mission: ‘That shit ain’t right’

The SF Bay Guardian voices strong support for enacting protections for small businesses in San Francisco, using the “stealthy inroads” paved by Jack Spade as an example of how deep-pocketed corporations can affect a neighborhood’s character.

The editorial board calls on political leaders to address the upward pressure on rents that result from an influx of big business. And in describing what’s at stake, the Guardian nails it:

Nothing less than the soul and face of San Francisco is at stake, and it’s up to all of us to fight for it and not be fooled by self-serving and simplistic “jobs” rhetoric. We need to call a Spade a Spade, and a corporation a corporation, and defend what makes San Francisco special: real, local people serving real, local people, not the interests of Wall Street.
