Regional Measure 3 On the June Ballot Nine Coutny Coalition is following this one
RM3 depends for passage on the combined approval of voters in all nine Bay Area counties. Unlike Measure AA, RM3 will only require a simple majority of “Yes” votes to pass, since RM3 is a toll not a tax.
SFMTA Ordinance : https://metermadness.wordpress.com/actions/sfmta-review/ This is a stop-gap measure the Supervisors are suggesting along with a renewed call for greater respect for the public on the part of the SFMTA. Supervisors would take back control over some of the SFMTA Board’s decisions while a Charter Amendment is prepared for the November ballot.
SFMTA Charter Amendment: https://metermadness.wordpress.com/actions/charter-amendment/
A campaign to SUPPORT the breakup of the SFMTA is on hold while the Supervisors consider an Ordinance to take back control over some neighborhood projects and apply pressure to the SFMTA by threatening to put the Charter Amendment on the November ballot. Send your comments and complaints to these Contacts for City Hall. There is a sample Letter of suppport.
SUPPORT SENSIBLE TRANSIT
Stop the corporate takeover of our streets by MTC/Motivate and Ford GoBikes.
Sign the petition to stop the Bikes in the Mission. People are voicing opposition and demanding removal of infringing GoBikes. At the SFMTA Board meeting, Board members were impressed by the opposition. Art Torres said “I think this is unacceptable… I’m glad you folks told us about this. This isn’t just going away.” He’s got that right.
TAKE BACK CONTROL OF OUR STREETS!
Metermadness Scooped the Scoot story:
SFMTA Pulls Another Lucy on Us – This time giving our curbs to Scoot –
The legislation is before the Planning Commission on Thursday. Let the Mayor, Planning Commissioners and Supervisors know how you feel about the privatization of public streets.
Stop the spread of Red! We Need Your Voice to Remove The Red Carpet Mess on Mission Street and stop the spread to other streets like the Geary BRT.
For inspiration watch the Small Business Commissioners reaction to the RPP presentation here. Go to Item 7: http://sanfrancisco.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?view_id=45&clip_id=25585 The Commissioners’ comments start around (03:07:35).
Adopt a Pothole. Join the intgernational movement. Simply complaining about the potholes doesn’t work. Adopt a pothole and make it your mission to get it fixed. Take a picture. Make note of the address. File a report on it with DPW using the Mayor’s 311 complaint system. You may also call 311 and speak to an operator but this can be time-consuming. It is easier to file a complaint online http://sf311.org to get it entered into the record. All feedback is linked to the 311 system and offers you a referral number, which you can use to check on the status of your pothole. Use that system and report back on your progress.
