I'm excited to announce that I’m running for re-election to the BART Board in this November's election.
Over the past three years, I’ve enjoyed representing BART District 3 and making substantial progress on our shared vision for a more financially and environmentally sustainable, and more accessible and equitable BART system.
BART is now focused on reinvesting in our core system, to ensure that it is reliable and can continue to serve a growing Bay Area. Through the leadership of the BART-AC Transit Interagency Liaison Committee, which I co-chair, BART and AC Transit have made significant progress towards improving the rider experience between the two agencies. And recently, the BART Board passed an affordable housing policy that I fought for, in order to ensure that development at BART helps all members of our communities.
BART still faces many challenges: much of BART's infrastructure is more than 40 years old and needs to be replaced or repaired. Ridership is rapidly growing, and BART must invest in expanding capacity.
I am running for a second term because we need to keep making progress on these and other critical issues.
