KQED, SF Chronicle: Petrelis Running for BART Board

The race for BART's District 9 seat generated some minor mainstream media attention this week. First up, KQED mainly focused on the East Bay seats on the ballot but gave passing reference to the San Francisco race, in a story from Dan Brekke:

"The two other board seats to be filled are in District 3, in which incumbent Rebecca Saltzman is running against former Moraga City Councilman Ken Chew and two other challengers, and District 9, a seat vacated by BART Board President Tom Radulovich. Bevan Dufty, a former member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and former chief of the city’s homeless initiatives, is running against Gwyneth Borden, a member of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency board, and longtime community activist Michael Petrelis."

The second bit of coverage comes from Michael Cabanautan in the SF Chronicle and his cursory look at all of the BART seats for voters to decide:

"Radulovich, who has served five terms, decided not to seek re-election to the District Nine seat, which represents much of the central part of San Francisco. Three candidates — Bevan Dufty, a former San Francisco supervisor and homeless czar; Gwyneth Borden, a Municipal Transportation Agency board member and head of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association; and political activist Michael Petrelis — are seeking to replace Radulovich."

It's nice to get free media as voting-by-mail and in-person ballot casting at City Hall are underway, and only 11 days left until the election.

Vote for zealous Petrelis!
