Over 40 Riders Attend BART Candidates' Forum

My campaign team extends a gracious and deep thank you to Thea Selby and Brian Stokle of the SF Transit Riders Union for organizing and moderating a terrific forum for six candidates vying for two BART board seats.

Gratitude also goes to the cosponsors, the SF Bicycle Coalition and WalkSF, my two District 9 opponents Gwyneth Borden and Bevan Dufty, and the three candidates for District 7 starting with Zakhary Mallet, Will Roscoe and Lateefah Simon, and all in the audience from BART riders to reporters taking notes and photos.

I estimate over forty BART riders attended some portion of the two hour forum and schmooze-fest, Sup. David Campos praised we three District 9 candidates for our friendliness and positive focus on transit issues, great questions were posed and answered and I proudly wore an outfit to visually signal my status as a Green Party voter.

As of today, there are 27 days till early voting begins in San Francisco and 56 days till November 8. Vote for Zealous Petrelis!

From the right, Borden, Dufty and yours truly.
