Robert Finnell has spent countless hours donating his time and energy to help keep San Francisco’s waterfront free of trash and graffiti. After intially starting his work in his own neighborhood, Robert soon joined the SF Graffiti Watch Program and began reaching out further into the community. He now helps to maintain the area surrounding the base of the Bay Bridge and its surrounding neighborhoods.
“Robert (Bob) Finnell has been relentless at removing graffiti and picking up trash at the base of the Bay Bridge in our South Beach neighborhood. He has worked with the DPW, the SFPD, CHP, DPW, our neighborhood organization, and others to make sure that graffiti is removed as soon as it is put up,” said resident Katy Liddell.
“Bob goes out every single day of the week to inspect the foot of Bryant Street (onramp to Bay Bridge), the Harrison offramp, and other surrounding areas. We have a homeless problem here as well, and Bob has to deal with getting yelled at and having rocks thrown at him as he goes on his daily rounds. But, nothing stops him.”
