I truly appreciate all of your feedback and support during my campaign for BART Director.
I'm humbled by the election results.
INCREASE rider safety through greater BART Police presence on trains, stations, and in parking lots. Additional Police shifts to cover evening and weekend hours. Expanded use of mental health professionals and homelessness advocates.
ADD much needed additional station parking, on-site station agent availability and regular BART Police presence.
MANDATE fiscal transparency, accountability and cost efficiencies from BART Management. Identify alternative revenue opportunities to minimize future fare increases.
IMPROVE system reliability by replacing aging infrastructure with a sustainable fleet that can be maintained by BART employees, reducing our dependency on outside vendors.
Accelerate the deliver of the delayed, mismanaged and over budget "Fleet of the Future".
PROVIDE proactive, not reactive, leadership.
Identify, investigate and respond to emerging issues before they become critical challenges for BART.
CREATE an open line of communication between the public and BART leadership. BART Board meetings should be held in the evening and rotated throughout the service area.
Hold recurring Director Meetings in Contra Costa County.
As a daily rider for over 25 years, I've seen first-hand how BART leadership has failed Contra Costa County.
BART has become an unsafe, unsanitary and unreliable transit system!
I have been part of this community for many years, and I pledge to work tirelessly to improve BART.
It's time for change...Elect Mark for BART!
I understand the critical importance of rider safety, fixing the flawed Antioch E-BART, correcting fiscal mismanagement, and a continuing list of unresolved problems with BART.
That's why I'm running for BART Director. Help me improve BART!
I can't win this race without your help. Neighbor to neighbor word-of-mouth, social media shares, phone banking, and donating are all ways of helping us achieve our goals together.
