I was listening to Michael Savage today and he refered to a story about the Marines not allowed to film on the Golden Gate Bridge.
SAN FRAN WON'T PERMIT U.S. MARINES TO FILM RECRUITMENT MOVIE ON STREETS OR GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE!
Today I personally spoke to Larry Kelly who is the Location Manager for USMC Television Commercial project. He told me that:
1. He had been in conversation with Stefanie Coyote, Executive Director of the San Francisco Film Commission for the last two weeks. The Marine Corps wanted to film a recriting commercial on California Street. Stefanie Coyote refused to give the Marine Corps permission to film the commercial if there were going to be Marines on California Street.
2. The Marince Corps had hoped to film a commercial with Marines on the pedestrian walkway on the Golden Gate Bridge. The Golden Gate Bridge District Director of Public Affairs, Mary Currie, told Larry Kelly, "Not on my bridge are you going to put your Marines."
With our men and women of the Marine Corps and every other branch of the military currently serving our country in harm's way, the statements and conduct of these petty bureaucrats is especially egregious.
I have written letters to all nineteen members of the Golden Gate Bridge District Board and every member of the Board of Supervisors. I urge you to do the same.
The San Francisco Film Commission meets on the fourth Monday of every month (September 24th) at 1400 hours, room 416 of City Hall. Let's fill the meeting with veterans and those that respect the young heroes that are serving our country. Lets inform the Film Commission how we feel about their outrageous and shabby treatment of members of the USMC!
