“As far as I’m concerned, the Oakland Raiders should play in Oakland,” Breed said. “In San Francisco, we have a number of challenges that we need to address with the Warriors coming to the new Chase arena, the 1,400 housing units set to break ground in that area, our transportation system and our ferry landing, we have a number of things we have been working to prepare for, and we don’t need another layer to add to what we already have in terms of an area that’s really congested, filled with construction and will host a number of games for basketball and baseball over the coming months.”
San Francisco city officials have also expressed to the San Francisco Giants should the Raiders end up using for the 2019 season they expect to be of providing police officers and fire fighters, extra Muni service and street cleaning outside the park after the games.
“Can you image the scene? The tailgating would start at 7 in the morning. And this would be just 90 days before the mayor faces her first re-election,” the source said.
As with any Raiders stadium situation, nothing has been finalized.
