On Monday, over one hundred attendees packed into the Park Branch Library community room to hear from the four people who are running for District 5 Supervisor: Vallie Brown, Ryan Lam, Dean Preston and Nomvula O’Meara.
After each candidate gave their introductory remarks, moderator Margaret McCarthy guided the four candidates through a lengthy Q&A about a variety of transportation topics affecting District 5 and the city as a whole, including Vision Zero, bike share, Muni, congestion and more.
We were encouraged to see such overwhelming interest in this candidate forum, and we look forward to continuing to engage our members in our endorsements process. Questionnaires have already been shared with all candidates for District 5 Supervisor, District Attorney and Mayor, and we will share their responses on our website in August. Our members will have a chance to weigh in via an online poll. Our board of directors will consider member input and share the organization’s full slate of endorsements by early September.
For those of you who weren’t able to attend Monday’s event, we recorded the candidate forum in full for your viewing and listening here:
