Vote for Zealous Petrelis for BART Board!

The final weekend of the 2016 election is here and I'm spending time out in BART's District 9 and online, campaigning for votes.

Mike called this morning from South Dakota, to catch me up on the Merrigan family saying good-bye to their loving matriarch Nana Mary. Wish I could be there with our fabulous extended family.

My Mike comes home on Wednesday but fear not - he voted for me by mail before traveling!

This is a selfie of us at Tuesday night's incredibly terrific and emotionally moving concert by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, under the spirited conducting skills of Gustavo Dudamel.

It was our first time hearing this great orchestra performing live and Mahler's 9th Symphony was the only piece on the program. Quite cheeky of them to come to the home of the San Francisco Symphony, and music director and conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, celebrated globally for their renditions of Mahler's symphonies.

We can say both the visiting philharmonic and hometown symphony bring joy to our ears playing the majestic music of Mahler.

Vote for zealous Petrelis!
