November 2016 SFMTA Charter Amendment

May 30, 2016

Let City Hall know you are fed up with the SFMTA.
Support Prop L – MTA Board Appointments and Budget

The amendment will split the MTA Board appointments between the Mayor and the Supervisors, 4 to 3 and lower the requirement to reject the SFMTA’s budget from 7 to 6 supervisors, putting the SFMTA management in line with other city departments, and making it easier for the Board of Supervisors to respond faster to voter requests. Contract approvals will still require a majority vote of the Board of Supervisors.

Proponent: Supervisor Yee   Opponent: Supervisor Wiener

They work for us. We don’t work for them.  The SFMTA is the one that needs to shift policies and goals, not the residents. San Francisco needs a transportation system that works today, not a plan for the future. We need a Board who listens to the public not one that dictates to us. Taking seats out of buses and removing bus stops will not help our aging population take public transportation. Link to a Sample letter to the supervisors

    Why would I support a charter amendment supported by Yee, Peskin, Campos and Kim? All four support removal of parking, Sunday meters, more bike lanes, closing certain streets to cars. They want to appoint MTA board members who will accelerate the aforementioned policies NOT rescind them.

    Seriously they support everything ENUF opposes.

    Do you have any record of any of the four supervisors supporting parking?
