Waller, Rich: Wealthy power structure


Rich Waller: Well from what I quickly learned is that you had what appeared to be a very strong mayor at the time – I think it was Alioto – and you had the Board of Supervisors. There was this fairly common knowledge that almost all the members of the Board of Supervisors lived in one very exclusive part of the city. That’s where they all came from. That’s what I recognized at that time in the 1974-75 was that the power was really held by a very elite group of people. Tend to be much more wealthy people.
