Last night was a major but partial victory for the fight against 7-Eleven. Pacifica City Council voted unanimously to continue this issue to September 14, with a staff directive to build support (and I'm going to word this carefully) for a Denial of the Fairmont 7-Eleven (technically an approval of the Betty Duran appeal).
We would like to thank Betty Duran for her night-and-day volunteer work on this issue for more than the past two months; thank Loreen Cuneo, who has been speaking; and thank all the residents of Fairmont and Pacifica (it was a standing-room-only crowd) who spoke unanimously against the Fairmont 7-Eleven.
We're not out of the woods yet, but last night was a major victory in the fight against 7-Eleven, and opponents of both the Fairmont and Linda Mar 7-Eleven proposals owe Betty Duran their gratitude. Don't let the walker fool you; that woman is a warrior!
