Poll Finds San Franciscan's Happy With Lawmakers, Quality Of Life

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) - San Francisco's Chamber of Commerce revealed results of their annual CityBeat Poll and it shows the quality of life is about the same as a year ago.

The poll found that 53 percent of San Franciscans said the quality of life has remained steady, but Jim Lazarus of the Chamber of Commerce pointed out that 58 percent also said the city is going in the right direction, while only 25 percent said things are going down the wrong road.

"[There's] still concerns about homelessness and the job market, but generally positive ratings for the mayor, even for the Board of Supervisors," Lazarus said.

KCBS' Barbara Taylor Reports:

In fact, Mayor Lee for the moment is the most popular local politician with a 68 percent approval rating.

The poll also indicated that city dwellers oppose higher fees and taxes, but applaud tax breaks as economic incentives.
