3:41 pm
same to bring unknown muni to the responding before i continue on the subway plan b a little bit about the board of supervisors the 11 members have representatives in the district and 5 probable progressive district and district one that is the swing district as such a lot of leverage from the muni rail we have not seen that i will be willing to work with the progressives and moderate to reach the goals but with achieving substantive improvements for the richmond district back the muni retro the part of san francisco is the only part that didn't have the metro rail serve the 50 thousand plus with the geary lines it takes someone like me that

3:43 pm
and get neurotic the first causality is aren't and reason in 2008, on this stage forum i stated this is like desirable practices to live without the infrastructure and increased density can make it overcrowded along with better transportation and the other improvement in infrastructure underground or overhead illustrates half has this done and the richmond is not on the schedule there is little chance any of the improvements without the district one old-time advocate indeed a champion i want to be that champion vote for me on november 8th i'll take our second or third place but remember larkin like the street.

3:45 pm
you are not need tore teaches and police officers and bus drivers and nurses and cooks if you can't afford market-rate you need affordable housing that drives a huge crush and future san franciscan we need to work to relieve the housing crush to the bottom and the middle all san franciscans and first, we need to vigorously shape the housing project for a fair share and increase the neighborhood users community planning and health i think that geary boulevard can can get taller with the right transportation choices and solid infrastructure speaking of transportation i'm energeticly ready to have a muni system that people don't just tolerant muni but go out of their way to use it shape our streets so making a trip by
3:46 pm
bicycle is more convenient and comfortable than by car and cause-and-effect is safe and pollutant and dignified and the human experience of wondering is protected and elevated as transportation advocate and the city starve i've made a career out in the community neighbors and advocates, institutions and businesses to shape a sustainable city save healthy streets are foundational i whorling endorse vision zero and support the focus on addressing and 4r50e789 serious related traffic injuries and death loss of a life to a hit-and-run is unsurmountable and the shape and managing of the street is essential i love the city i love the business of running the city
