Schact, Linda: Moscone impression


Linda Schact: I have a warm spot in my heart for George Moscone. To this day if I look at a picture of him, it makes me pretty sad. He was approachable, warm, kind, thoughtful. He cared about the little guy, and that was sort of his mission in politics. To give a voice to people who hadn’t had a voice before. As a human being he was pretty cute, and he was very, very fun to be around. I never spent any time with him anyplace but on a story in City Hall, at political events and that sort of thing, but I had the feeling that he was a guy that had the same personality all the time no matter where he was. He wasn’t a phony. He wasn’t one person in City Hall and another person at a party. He was always the same guy, and that was a very warm human being. He was a funny, hang loose, affable, approachable person.
