|SF survey: 2019 vs 2023. Everything's getting worse (Chronicle chart).|
San Franciscans report feeling less safe and believe their local government is doing a worse job of providing services compared to any other point over more than two decades, according to a new survey conducted by the city. The survey was released Thursday by the Controller's Office.In our younger days we considered forsaking our boring suburban existence and moving to the City, where the lights were bright, the food was good, and the energy was high.
In results collected last year, residents graded the city with the lowest safety rating since 1996 at 3.3 out of 5, which the city calls a C+. The data shows that just 36% of residents report feeling safe walking at night, a drop from 53% in 2019, the last time the city conducted the survey.
Residents also gave the government the lowest rating since 2002 at 3 out of 5, or a grade of C. The city’s public safety and government ratings saw the biggest drops from 2019 of 16 ratings collected.
Now San Francisco seems to have sunk into a slough of despond from which it can't seem to get out of. Worse, it was a predicament of residents' own making.
the San Francisco voters seem to approve these policies on homelessness and crime because they keep re-electing leaders who spend $billions and not only do not fix the problems but make things worse.
