BART Board Candidate Makes Pitch

BART - Make It Clean, Safe & Accessible!


San Leandro and Bay Fair rank in top 10 BART Stations for crime with Bay Fair in top 5!

Crime is escalating and BART does not disclose crime data on its web site.

SL BART is dirty, drab, poorly lighted and desperately in need of cleaning.

Accessibility at Bay Fair for elevator users is a dangerous obstacle course. Running for BART Director. We can change it!!!

(Fred Wright Lopez is one of three candidates for the BART Board of Directors. He wrote this blog entry. All candidates, indeed, all readers, are invited to blog on Patch. Click here to start your blog now.)

For very detailed Practical & Pragmatic Solutions please go to my web page: fredwlopezbartdirector.com I am the only candidate who has actually laid out step by step fixes to escalating crime, the stench and filth of trains, stations and parking lots; and making BART universally accessible for everyone. I believe I speak to the concerns of riders of BART, neighbors of BART and local businesses adversely affected by the crime and grime on BART. I could expound on long range transit plans for BART or long terms fixes but voters / BART users are move concerned about having a clean train car seat, getting home safe, not having their car or bicycle stolen or not being assaulted, robbed or being confronted by a sex offender on the BART system. This is BART's reality show and ti needs to be corrected now! Fred Wright Lopez, Candidate BART District 3

Glad to see accessible BART is a campaign issue. It is a matter of fundamental social justice.

Saltzman is an environmental loon, and not shy to scream it out. From her website: Rebecca graduated with a BA in Sociology from the University of California, Berkeley. She lives in Oakland with her wife Caitlin and their two cats. And this: My overarching vision is to make BART environmentally and fiscally sustainable So can we count on her to advocate for crime victims, or is she won't to side with the criminals? You have my vote Fred, Marga here CLEARLY has an agenda!
