Going Away Drinks with Bryan Goebel

Facebook event

Come celebrate three years of Streetsblog SF with me. We’ll be joined by Streetsblog editor-in-chief Ben Fried.

When I started my job at Streetsblog San Francisco I had no idea that it would turn out to be the best job I’ve ever had. I really mean that. I often tell people I’ve had more impact in the last three years at Streetsblog than I did in all my 20 years as a radio and TV journalist.

Friday was my last day at Streetsblog, and I’m moving onto new adventures.

I’m proud to say Streetsblog SF has influenced transportation policy in San Francisco. Our stories are constantly sourced by mainstream media reporters, and we have amassed a loyal following of thousands of daily readers, whose intelligence and passion is on display in the comments section.

Beyond our success influencing the mainstream narrative, we have also worked behind the scenes to help advocates get real change on the streets. That’s why the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition honored us with a Golden Wheel Award last year. Accepting the award, and giving a speech before hundreds of movers and shakers in the bike movement, was one of my proudest moments as the editor of Streetsblog San Francisco.

This was my last post:

Come have some drinks with me Tuesday night, and help me toast three wonderful years.

Working on valet bike parking. Stay tuned for details.

Thank You, Bryan Goebel

When you take a step back and look at the evolution of San Francisco’s streets, it is truly impressive how much has improved for pedestrians, cyclists, and the public realm since Bryan launched Streetsblog SF in 2009. Progress seldom happens as rapidly as we might like, especially when you’re taking on something as deeply entrenched […]
