Billionaire venture capitalist Ron Conway has constructed an apparatus to control the City and County of San Francisco. In 2012, Conway's net worth was reported at $1.5 billion. But being filthy rich isn't enough for Ron; he wants power too—and in San Francisco, money buys it.
In 2010, Conway let loose the battle cry to "take the City back" from progressives. Through a web of investments, pseudo-philanthropic foundations, private donations, political contributions, aggressive lobbying, and shrewd tinkering with City agencies, Conway and his cohorts are realizing his agenda to upend the political landscape of San Francisco.
What they are actually doing is taking the City from its long time residents, adding to the displacement of working families, the elderly, artists and other less well-heeled members of our community. His first foray into local politics—funding the "Sit/Lie" law—made his agenda clear: Aggressively displace all who can't pay to get into his party.
Ron Conway and the Venture Capitalists make our City really Crappy!
