Bike-Friendly Candidate for Mayor

On Monday, President of SF’s Board of Supervisors David Chiu announced his candidacy for mayor. Running on a platform of improving “sustainable transportation”, Chiu declared on the steps of City Hall: “We’re the city that invented the cable car, but while we call ourselves a Transit-First city, we are sick of gridlock, we are sick of potholes and we’re sick of Muni.”

Chiu is presenting himself as the “candidate for mayor who doesn’t own a car, who gets to City Hall either on the number 49 or on [his] bicycle” and as the candidate who firmly believes that “we can do better” when it comes to public transportation and protecting pedestrians and cyclists on the streets.
We’ll be sure to keep an eye for what he’s got planned!
