Dear SaveMuni members and friends,
For a variety of reasons San Francisco needs strong representation on the BART Board. Given the constant pressure from the eastern and southern parts of the Region to put extensions of BART service to their areas ahead of properly operating and maintaining the core system, strong San Francisco representation on the BART Board is now more important than ever
BART Board District 8 covers the northern, western and southern parts of San Francisco. At the 10/15 Save Muni meeting we heard from the five District 8 candidates…all earnestly trying to win the seat. One candidate stood out. Eva Chao is smart, serious, independent and has clearly been doing her homework about BART. Most of the input from the other candidates centered around ideas familiar to every newspaper reader or, in one case, pie-in-the-sky subway-building fantasies. What was particularly impressive about Ms. Chao’s approach was her independent and thoughtful responses to important BART operational and financial issues.
Her campaign needs are not huge, but she needs financial help and other indications of support. Please help her to get elected. Send checks and endorsements to:

This is an important race.
Regards to all,
We support Eva Chao for District 8 and all the other BART Board candidates who are interested in running the BART transportation system instead of getting involved in other enterprises such as construction projects. BART has enough on its plate without taking on anything else. It is so close to being a good transportation choice it just needs a few tweaks to make it better.
