The Board of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition has made the following endorsements for the June 7, 2022 primary election:
Yes on Proposition A
State Assembly, District 17: Matt Haney
State Assembly, District 19: Phil Ting
City Attorney: David Chiu
Yes on Proposition A: Proposition A is a $400 million bond measure for Muni and street safety. We support investments in Muni because we believe that a transit-friendly city is a bike-friendly city. In addition to the transit improvements, Proposition A would invest $114 million in street safety projects to protect people biking and walking.. This includes traffic calming, signal upgrades, and making quick-build bike lanes permanent. Proposition A is a crucial opportunity for us to upgrade decades-old infrastructure and make Muni faster, more reliable, and seamless.The Bicycle Coalition helped craft this measure, and we urge everyone who bikes, walks, or rolls in San Francisco to vote Yes on A.
State Assembly, District 17: Matt Haney has proven himself to be a champion for biking and active transportation during his time on the Board of Supervisors. We previously endorsed Matt in the February 15 special election and the April 19 runoff for this seat, and we are proud to endorse him again.
State Assembly, District 19: Phil Ting won our Golden Wheel award in 2016, and has continued to work to make our streets safer to bike on. He has authored a bill that would decriminalize jaywalking, and has co-authored bills to lower speed limits, legalize automated speed enforcement, and allow bicyclists to treat stop signs as yield signs.
City Attorney: David Chiu was a strong supporter of biking and transportation improvements during his time in the Assembly, and before that on the Board of Supervisors. We look forward to him bringing a pro-bike perspective to the City Attorney’s office.
