The People Triumph on JFK Promenade. Victory Party Begins

Lee Heidhues 11.9.2022

It was less than 24 hours after Proposition J prevailed by a landslide 60 percent victory to permanently preserve JFK Promenade.

A large hardy band of campaign veterans assembled on a chilly late afternoon on JFK Promenade near the roller skating area to hug, congratulate each other and celebrate.

The local media was present chronicling the happy event for posterity.

The celebrants had plenty of company as the community traveled back and forth on foot, bicycles, strollers, walkers and plenty of canine companionship.

This historic vote now puts Golden Gate Park in particular and San Francisco in general as an international City that knows how to do it.
