Don't let the walker fool you. Betty Duran is a 30-year Fairmont resident, mother, grandmother, and warrior who spearheaded a movement, along with her Fairmont, Linda Mar, and Pedro Point neighbors who oppose 7-Eleven's further penetration into Pacifica.
The video above is an edited version of Pacifica City Council's July 27 meeting, where Betty and her neighbors voiced passionate appeals to overturn a May 18 Pacifica Planning Commission ruling allowing 7-Eleven’s application to build a 24-hour gas station and convenience store in her beloved Fairmont neighborhood.
