After the Giants’ World Series win Sunday night, hundreds of fans took to Mission, 24th and Valencia streets to party. Eventually the celebration turned ugly, and some local businesses were vandalized, fires were set, and a Muni bus was damaged.
Today, District 9 Supervisor David Campos released a statement in response:
“I have been in communication with the Department of Public Works (DPW) and we are working closely to clean up the streets and help affected businesses.While I am thrilled by the Giants’ World Series victory I am deeply disappointed to see many of our small businesses tagged with graffiti. It’s important to celebrate but it’s unacceptable to vandalize our own community — especially local businesses that are already struggling and now have to deal with this additional burden. I ask that as we celebrate over the coming days that we do so responsibly and respectfully. I am working with the Mission police captain and neighborhood violence prevention workers to address some of these issues before they arise.”
Local businesses or homeowners who were vandalized are encouraged to call 311 to report the damage to DPW.
