But the candidate for mayor left some interesting questions hanging

As part of her ongoing campaign for mayor, Board of Supervisors President London Breed opened an ”Ask Me Anything” thread on Reddit’s San Francisco forum last week, taking queries from users who were, for the most part, concerned about housing and transportation.

Breed’s replies were mostly general, frequently touting her history as a legislator or agreeing that more should be done to redress a problem, but not providing much in the way of particulars.

  • “Many different people have different opinions on the Hunters Point superfund site, with some wanting it to turn into housing and others wanting it to stay undeveloped due to safety concerns. What are your thoughts and plans?”
  • “It is frustrating to see MUNI trains waiting at traffic lights. As mayor, will you direct the MTA to enact signal priority for trains?”
  • “What are your ideas about combating the number of vacant storefronts all over the city? It seems like landlords try holding out for as much money as possible while the neighborhood itself deals with the fallout.”
  • “What is your stance on the increasing presence of stationless bikes and scooters? Jump Bikes, Lime Scooters, etc?”… (more)
