My Top 3 Priorities

  • Reform BART so it's safer for everyone. Increase the number of BART Ambassadors and Officers.
  • Improve ridership which has been decimated by the Coronavirus Pandemic (down almost 90%)
  • Make the tough decisions necessary to solve BART's fiscal insolvency, while making BART cleaner and greener.
