    The BART election is hilarious. One of the challengers in District 4 is a local crank who ran for mayor and got negligible votes. In District 8, one of the challengers goes by the name “Flash Gordon”. Brilliant.

    I think the common perception is the BART board elections are meaningless, that BART is going to do what it does independent of who sits on the board.

    Are you claiming that BART is an emergent phenomenon?

    That may be the perception, but I’ve personally noticed a big change in terms of policy and capital investment priorities (for the better, in my opinion) since some of the more recent directors were elected. Directors Raburn and Saltzman in particular have been super responsive to my concerns.
