Nelson, David: Moscone's legacy


David Nelson: Well I think George’s legacy is his kids. I think George’s legacy is the kind of city we have now as opposed to the kind of city we had in the Alioto days which some people would argue was not the best thing. I think George’s legacy is a legacy of someone who actually, actually gave his life for what he believed in, and that’s a very, very important thing, and I understand that his boy has done a stage play or a movie or something. I’m not gonna go and see it. I prefer just to remember George just the way I remember him. He was a hell of a good guy. Just a hell of a good guy. And a guy who tried to do the best to accomplish the things that he believed in.
