ENUF

ENUF has joined the non-partisan backlash against government overreach that is fighting privatization and commercialization of public streets and  properties all over the country.
We have caught the media’s attention as we abandon former party alliances to protect our civil liberties.
We are starting by pushing back at the excesses and lack of accountability of the SFMTA and supporting the No on A and B (No more Muni money for non-Muni projects) and Yes on L (Restore transportation balance) campaigns.

The history of the movement: Eastern Neighborhoods United Front (ENUF) was born out of concerns over plans to install thousands of parking meters in the North Eastern Neighborhoods. When signs popped up announcing that parking meters were going to to installed all over Potrero Hill, Dogpatch and the Mission District, hundreds of angry citizens showed up at City Hall to protest. Residents and merchants complained about meters in front of their homes and businesses with no notice, discussion or input on their part. Neighborhood groups filed an appeal and the next day the SFMTA withdraw their plans.

Citizens organized a public meeting which was widely attended by Supervisors, SFMTA staff the media, and hundreds of irate residents. Things did not go well for the SFMTA at that meeting and they backtracked from their original plans. At this point they had a foe that was ready to strike back.

Stop SFMTA: ENUF started a petition to Stop SFMTA which put more pressure on the city authorities and gave drivers and car owners a means to direct their anger and personal stories to the city authorities.

Uniting the neighborhoods: SFMTA attempted to divide and conquer by going after one street at a time, but ENUF united all neighborhood residents and merchants and together we were able to convince the Supervisors to limit the expansion of the parking meters in the city, using the one means possible of controlling the SFMTA. They amended the parking meter contract to limit the number of meters purchased. Recently SFMTA gave up enforcement of the Sunday parking meters as well.

Restore Transportation Balance: ENUF has been credited with starting the fight but now the anger has boiled over to the point that political forces have gathered to place the Restore Transportation Balance initiative on the November ballot. Passage of this ballot, which only requires a 51% vote to pass, will send a strong message to the SFMTA that their days are numbered if they don’t change course. http://www.restorebalance14.org/

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — A Muni driver may face disciplinary action after being caught on video initially refusing to let a wheelchair user board his bus, and verbally harassing the woman.
Liz Henry filed a complaint with the SFMTA after the driver at first refused to let her board because the bus was too crowded last month.
The exchange was caught on surveillance video.
Driver: “Now what you got to do is, catch the next one.  Catch the next one!”
Liz: “You can let me on.  There’s room.”
Driver: “You don’t demand nothing.  There’s a guy in a white truck if you want to complain.  He’s right there.”
Liz: “We have a right to use the bus.  You don’t, you don’t, you don’t not let me on because I’m in a wheelchair.”
Driver: “You don’t demand nothing, neither.”
The driver eventually let Liz board the bus, but as she exited at the end of her ride, the driver suggested she shouldn’t be allowed to use the bus.
“You gonna complain anyway, that’s all you is! Hahaha. That’s how y’all live. You shouldn’t even be on the bus,” he said.
Muni has begun an investigation into the incident… (more)
