If you didn’t already have enough reasons to want to reverse Prop E and send the SFMTA packing, here is another one. If they haven’t gotten around to displacing you yet, they are now going after your street parking and displacing that. The SFMTA is decided that it has the right to take public streets for their car shares. If you disagree with this theory, there are at least three things you can do right now.
1. Send them a letter telling them that you disagree with their taking public street parking: firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Sign up to support the ballot initiative that will be gathering signatures for the November Ballot to Restore Transportation Balance: http://www.restorebalance14.org/
3. Sign the petition and tell the city officials why you want them to do something to Fix the MTA: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/fix-the-mta
You can also attend the SFMTA Engineering Hearing On-Street Car-Share Spaces and speak out
Friday, May 16, 2014, 10AM at City Hall, Room 416,
