your-vote-countsTonight is the final candidates event for the District 1 Supervisor race which will be decided on election day, November 8, 2016.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH TONIGHT’S EVENT LIVE VIA WEBCAST STARTING AT 7:30PM

Tonight’s event takes place in the auditorium at Presidio Middle School, 450 30th Avenue, at 7:30pm (view the event on Facebook). Come hear your ten District 1 candidates give their views on the critical issues facing our neighborhood and city, including transportation, housing, crime and more.

Unlike other candidate events, this one will group the candidates into smaller debate groups so we can go more in depth on the key issues.

If you can’t make it to the auditorium at Presidio Middle School, we will also webcast the event (and archive it for later viewing). Check this post before the event tonight for details on how to tune in.

  1. well run debate. too many candidates.
    at least three should not be running.
    the large field does not allow for real differences to be seen or heard
    and i have a feeling that if either of the two leading candidates (who only lead because both have raised a lot of money) are elected, we will see little to no change and will be left to the whims of the powers that be at city hall…and that includes the mta, who are running wild throughout this district

  2. WALT ,
    Compliments to Sarah B. for a superbly organized forum. The panels of 3 candidates allowed candidates to go deeper into issues than at any of the other 3 forums. For those who didn’t see the forum, it’s available online, but the sound isn’t in sync with the video. I hope that it can be fixed because this forum offers more information than the 3 others I attended or watched.

    I agree that MTA doesn’t have an effective way of communicating with residents who use it’s services despite the many surveys they spend money on. They certainly don’t respond to emails; even though they ask to hear suggestions, complaints, etc. Their meetings, however, are recorded and available for viewing online. All documents for upcoming meetings and minutes from previous meetings are also available online.
    However, individuals who comment on problems don’t seem to be heard. If, for example, residents want improvements in service or to stop the Geary BRT, they will have to first be well-informed about the details, then either form a committee or work with existing groups like PAR, etc., which will in turn need form a coalition of groups to address important transit issues to both our Supervisor and directly to MTA. In short, it means time and work. Are you willing to do this work?
