BART Board to vote again on SB 50
We have a great opportunity to get BART to change their vote and Oppose SB 50! San Francisco has two representatives on the BART Board, who both voted to support SB 50 in March. But there is a lot more information out about the problems with SB 50, which may influence how they vote.
The following email (courtesy of Livable California) outlines the actions you can take:
BART Board's vote to support SB 50 taken on March 14th violated the Brown Act. The BART Board is required to take up SB 50 again at their next meeting.
Meeting Date: Thursday, May 9 at approximately 11:00 am for this agenda item
Meeting Location: BART Board Room, 2040 Webster Street, Oakland
SAN FRANCISCO REPRESENTATIVES ON BART BOARD:
Janice Li was elected in 2018. Li represents western San Francisco and northern San Francisco. The map of her district is here: https://www.bart.gov/sites/default/files/docs/bart_8.pdf
The SF BOS vote against SB 50 can be used to try to persuade her to change her mind. If you have neighborhood council/association leaders/members that are against SB 50, I suggest that everyone possible contact Director Li directly, along with a note, letter or e-mail to the BART Board e-mail address. Her BART e-mail address is: Janice.Li@bart.gov
Bevan Dufty represents District 9. The map is here: https://www.bart.gov/sites/default/files/docs/bart_9.pdf
Dufty's district includes the Mission District. Dufty is up for re-election in 2020. E-mail address for Dufty: firstname.lastname@example.org

Let them know that you OPPOSE SB-50! Tell them that you live in SF and that Senator Wiener does not represent you on this legislation.
