^^Without the profanity, I will say the important thing is having adequate dollars and real concern for these assets. There is little evidence the city government will make the dollars available or that it will apply the attention and concern that Salesforce will. I believe the result of city control will be neglect and deterioration. What it boils down to is whether you think Mark Benioff or the BOS will be the better steward of the asset. Your faith in the BOS is touching but wrong.

While some cities have actually sold assets, this is not a sale which I would oppose. This is "naming rights" which you say you don't care about and "sponsorship" which means they will have a stake in the things that matter: husbandry* of the park and terminal. The Transbay Transit District will continue to own them.

*management and conservation of resources
