Editor, As a member of the Driscoll’s family and the Bay Area farming community for more than three decades, it’s my responsibility to share facts about farmworker treatment in response to your story, “Driscoll’s Boycott Hampered by Poor Information” (December, 2016).

Editor, I’m writing as an old Potrero Hill resident to advise View readers of a serendipitous event.  A month ago, my car was burglarized, right in my own driveway.  Anything of value was stolen, including the prescription sunglasses I need for driving.  A week or so later, I received a phone call from a local…

Editor, Why would the University of California, San Francisco want to locate an academic building, the new Department of Psychiatry and Child, Teen Health Center, in a residential neighborhood and not at a key site on their Mission Bay campus, where construction has stalled, leaving many undeveloped sites by the campus core (“UCSF to Develop…

Editor, I was surprised to see “The Debate Rages:  Are Turf Fields Safe?” in last month’s View.  The article is factually incorrect, as artificial turf isn’t being considered for the Potrero Hill Recreation Center renovation.  The $4 million project is funded by the 2012 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Bond.  The scope will likely include replacement…

Editor, The Potrero Residents Education Fund appreciates the View reporting on improvements at Daniel Webster (DW) Elementary School.
