Davis, Belva: Moscone's popularity with the youth


Belva Davis: We had been friends on a different level. We had daughters who attended the same high school. So I knew him (George) through listening to Rebecca, his daughter, and my daughter talk about these things. I can remember the girls were so excited that George was such a hit with their high school chums that on Father-Daughter dance night, he was the most popular guy in the room. And everybody – he was the mayor too of course and good-looking guy – they all wanted to dance with him. My daughter ended up working in City Hall [Rotea] Gilford, one of George Moscone’s very good friends, and was really affected a great deal outside of being in City Hall that day. [She] was really affected that day.
