Mayoral Forum: From Streets to Parks: Safer, Greener Public Space

From WalkSF:

Join your mayoral candidates to learn more about their positions on public space and open space throughout our city.

Walk San Francisco is excited to be joining with the Neighborhood Parks Council, the San Francisco Parks Trust, and Friends of the Urban Forest to host a mayoral candidate forum that focus specifically on public space, streets, and park and recreation issues.

Our goal is to give you the opportunity to learn more about each candidate’s knowledge of and positions on public space and open space.

Together we can ensure a strong voice for great public spaces will be elected into City Hall.
