San Francisco has become so dangerous and run down that even government officials are shutting down their offices and moving them out of the downtown area.

Many San Francisco County offices have been ensconced in an 11-story office building downtown near city hall since 1999 when the city leased the building to the county government. But it is looking as though that relationship is coming to an end.

A raft of governmental departments have had offices in the building, including the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, the Office of the Treasurer & Tax Collector, the Mayor’s Office of Disability, and the Department of the Environment, among others.

But now, the San Franciscan Board of Supervisors has officially rejected the plan of renewing the lease and that rejection has sent the owner of the building, the nonprofit LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, into a financial spiral and it seems likely they will not be able to pay their debts owed because of their stake in the building. The group owes a $48 million mortgage due in Jan. 2025, and it seems unlikely they’ll be able to pay up.

“Losing the City as a tenant would create a great financial hardship for the Lighthouse for the Blind,” LightHouse CEO Sharon Giovinazzo told The San Francisco Standard.

The mayor’s office, though, claims they don’t intend to flee downtown. They are just looking for a new building at a better rate.

But if the offices are removed from the building, it will only be the latest shoe to drop for downtown San Francisco.

Dozens of businesses have closed up shop and fled the dangerous city that has seen a 240 percent rise in crime year-over-year.

Democrats have literally destroyed their city, and now even they are fleeing it.
