As the publication's editor for the last three-plus years, I've had the privilege of working with a team of incredibly dedicated people both within the Streetsblog group in California and throughout the nation, but also within the safe-streets and transit advocacy community in the Bay Area.
Just yesterday, our friends and allies at the San Francisco Transit Riders launched "Transit Week," a series of events marking accomplishments in bringing more reliable Muni service. These hard-working advocates represent one of several groups currently pushing for a regional measure that promises to bring a world-class transit system to the Bay Area. We'll be covering their activities and aiding them in any way we can.
Here at Streetsblog, we are humbled by the efforts of all these great organizations, and others, not to mention the people who work independently, often behind the scenes, often thanklessly, to bring safer, more livable streets for all. There are so many fantastic people who get up every day, work all day, work evenings, work weekends - often for no pay - to bring a better life to the people of the Bay Area.
We hope we've done our job and encouraged, informed, and amplified your work.
Hopefully we got to see you at Tuesday night's party, so we could say "thank you" in person.
