Mail Woes

On Tuesday, a federal judge ruled that the Postal Service does not have to individually sort mail for 11,000 tenants living in San Francisco's SRO hotels. San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera argued that SRO hotels often lose public-assistance checks and medical records, amongst other important documents. Judge Richard Seeborg said that the Postal Service is not responsible for mail after it is properly deliver to an address. Frenemy of the Tenderloin (where the majority of San Francisco's SRO hotels are located) Randy Shaw, who's the executive director of the Tenderloin Housing Clinic, said "we strongly disagree with the court's ruling treating low-income SRO residents as second-class citizens."
