  • Hey, in Berkeley, our mayor doesn’t have a car. Why can’t SF do the same?

  • bs

    Unfortunately in SF we don’t have a mayor who cares about public transit at all, as obvious from his “leadership” on Muni. What Gavin doesn’t realize is that it’s costing him a lot of support among regular Muni riders like me (I was a big supporter when I first moved to SF few years ago). I certainly will not be voting for him no matter which office he runs for in the future.
