Sandoval to SF: Lose the Booze

An Examiner article reports today that Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval would like to see the number of liquor stores opened in San Francisco reduced. A proposed measure would ban new stores from opening within 500 feet of another store, a school, or children's recreation center. Initially, Sandoval introduced a bill that placed the number of feet at 1,000, which would have effectively banned the opening of any new liquor or wine stores within city limits. Currently, San Francisco has the highest concentration of liquor stores per capita in the entire state of California. You hear that, guys? We're number one! We're number one! (click 'more')
