I'm happy to announce today that Dave Snyder, the former transportation director at SPUR, will join Streetsblog San Francisco as a regular contributor.

Snyder, who was recently appointed to a position on the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District Board of Directors, is a longtime advocate for socially just
transportation and land-use policies. He is the founder of the modern day San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and also of Transportation for a Livable City, the organization now headed by Tom Radulovich.

Snyder's inside knowledge and comprehensive analyses of the transportation
sector will greatly enhance our coverage of transit issues in the Bay

I'm excited about this opportunity because I've always loved bothjournalism and transportation activism, and Streetsblog is both! TheSFBC got started in 1991, really, as a vehicle for the publication of anewsletter to connect various elements of the bicycle activistcommunity. Streetsblog can do the same thing for the broader livablestreets movement: connect the dots between the bicycle activists andthe neighborhood activists and the social justice activists. I hopethat I can learn from the different perspectives and help educate folkswho see transportation from those different perspectives about how by workingtogether we can create a more livable city for everyone.

Welcome Dave! We're thrilled to have you.
