Busch, Corey: Moscone


Corey Busch: When I first came to San Francisco and worked for George I was struck, by a number of things, but I was struck particularly first of all by how well he knew the geography of San Francisco. I mean he knew every single corner of the city, and he also knew the quickest way to get there. He also knew everybody. It was phenomenal. It didn’t matter – at a restaurant, he went to the Horseshoe on Chestnut Street – when you traveled around San Francisco with George Moscone as I did a lot in the 1970’s, he just seemed to know everybody. He knew their names and they all knew him, and had a very informal kind of relationship with him notwithstanding the fact that he was in the Senate or he was mayor at the time. It was a remarkable relationship that George had with the city and the people of the city.
