Cast Your Vote for the 2013 SF Streetsies — and Give to Streetsblog!

Ah, 2013, we hardly knew ye. But the year certainly had its memorable moments — a few good transportation improvements here, a few nonsensical and alarming statements from city officials there.

Now is your chance to vote on the best and worst of 2013 with Streetsblog SF’s second annual Streetsie Awards. Polls are open until Friday at midnight. Streetsblog will be taking a break from publishing for the rest of this week. We’ll post the awards round-up next week, and be back to our regular schedule on January 2.

And if you haven’t already, please make a donation to Streetsblog SF and help us cover the movement for more livable San Francisco streets in 2014!
