It’s not easy to challenge an incumbent, but your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition believes Danny Sauter is up to the task to become the next District 3 Supervisor.
For him, biking is personal. Danny grew up riding bikes and even delivered newspapers by bike for 10 years. “Bikes have always meant freedom for me,” he shares.
Danny currently serves as the president of North Beach Neighbors. “I’ve seen what is possible when neighbors get together and act to make a positive change in their community,” says Danny. “This experience has drawn me to want to do this work more deeply, and to do it in service of the district neighborhoods that I believe in.”
District 3 is a small but dense district, covering diverse neighborhoods from North Beach to Chinatown to the Financial District. Unfortunately, it’s a district with very few bike routes that feel safe, and Danny wants to change that. “The state of transportation in District 3 is slow, dangerous, and inequitable. Just 23% of District 3 residents use a car to get to work, yet the decisions made in this District over the last few decades favor private vehicles over those who rely on public transit, walking, or biking,” says Danny.
As Supervisor, Danny wants to prioritize tangible solutions like a citywide daylighting program, pop-up protected bike lanes, and long-term public transit projects such as the Central Subway and the second transbay rail crossing. He’s also voiced frustration at the lack of Slow Streets in the district and is committed to ensuring District 3 has access to car-free spaces. .
