Neil Davis. Vs. Sally Stanford

Neil Davis. Vs. Sally Stanford

By Larry Clinton


Sally Stanford ran into some stiff opposition when she began her political career, as evidenced in the following article, which is excerpted from the San Francisco Chronicle of April 9, 1962.

A Bartender Tees Off On Sally

The proprietor of the avant garde no Name Bar became the first man in Sausalito yesterday to tangle politically with ex-madam Sally Stanford.

Neil Davis, a gentle philosopher and mixologist, charged Sally’s election to the city council would make as much sense as “appointing Elizabeth Taylor our ambassador to the Vatican.”

Retorted Sally: “From what I read in the papers I doubt Liz would qualify for the job, whereas I know my way around City Hall.”

Davis poured himself a straight shot in his bar before hurling his political darts at the one time keeper of  San Francisco’s swankiest bordellos.

(Seven men running against Sally for two council seats in tomorrow’s election have meticulously avoided dueling with the quick-witted ex-madam.)

“All of a sudden I find it very refreshing that Polly Adler just faded away and avoided politics,” Davis began.

The wail of Miles Davis’ trumpet provided background music for the barkeep’s political dissertation.


“Anyone that has ever attended council meetings,” Davis continued, “knows that Sally and the council, especially the mayor, have not been involved in one of the great love affairs of our time.

“She has called them everything in the book.  With this in mind I think the voters of Sausalito will be well aware of the fact that a vote for Sally could only result in chaotic, riotous and bitter council meetings.”

Sally, twirling a huge diamond ring on her finger, survived the initial shock of the Davis charges and launched a sharp-tongued counter attack. . . So far as her relations with Mayor Philip Ehrlich are concerned, Sally said it was “the man’s actions, not the man, that annoy the hell out of me.

“In fact, I think Phil Ehrlich’s rather handsome. With proper tutelage he might grow up,” she snapped.

As for the Davis charge that she would convert the council meetings, if elected, into a chaotic, riotous and bitter affair, Sally had a ready reply.

“I won’t if they shape up and fly right,” she said.


Neil Davis will share memories of some of the legendary characters who frequented the No Name from 1959-1973 in a talk sponsored by the Historical Society on Monday evening, Jan. 31.  The event will be in City Hall Council chambers beginning with light refreshments at 5 PM.  Admission is free for SHS members, $10 for non-members.  Advance reservations are required.  Call 415-289-4117 or e-mail info@sausalitohistoricalsociety.org.
