No on all of them...And the Unions should keep their nose and money out of this one. We need someone tough on crime. And smart about what makes a city work! Clean, Safe and above average citizenry intelligence!!! Whoever the Union supports, you don't want to support!!!!
If it wasn't for providence there would still be a strike...so we will see where we are in 4 years. Enjoy the BART system that has been conveniently routed.
In regard to the beverage idea...Lynette Sweet came up with that idea years ago but didn't have the support of the colleagues. She was recommending a special spill proof BART container. The point is people are going to sneak drinks unto the cars why criminalize it? The cars are getting dirty regardless. So, lets alleviate the condition by legitimizing it and placing trash dispensers in the cars. Which is risky!
Rebecca Saltzman as a delegate to the Democratic Committee is all the more the reason she should not be on a Transportation Board. We do not want to politicize transportation. Besides, have you heard that the Democrats are for the poor...But they didn't finish the sentence, they are for the poor staying poor!
It appears the editor removed my comment about Lynette Sweet, who I feel should remain on the BART Board. Lynette is for the public and demands the professionalism and service you expect from your transportation system. In short, If you remove Lynette Sweet form the Board expect your fares to increase to pay for under-performing union workers.
You guys got it all wrong...First of all, Rebecca Saltzman is a public servant wanna be. I question anybodys' agenda that runs for every public position from school board to city council. Secondly, the majority of BARTs expansion money comes from Federal Transportation funds. However, BART does have to match usually on a 20/80 basis to obtain those funds. In those cases, the money does come out of the operating budget. When you hear about BART not being reliable this is a result of the lack of a quality manangement system within the organization, not mis-appropriating funds for expansion over maintainebility. We need the expansion to San Jose. If anybody has ever driven down 880 to San Jose in the morning you know what I mean. Personnally, I suffer from "road rage" and if it wasn't for BART I would be in an institution! Elect the right person folks...and it isn't Rebecca Saltzman!
