Bevan joins BART race hand-in-hand with Lateefah Simon in District 7.
'As for BART Board of Directors, the committee overwhelmingly endorsed former city homeless czar Bevan Dufty.'
'Gay former supervisor Bevan Dufty is throwing his hat in the ring for this open seat, and we think he would be an excellent BART director. He has decades of experience in public transportation, dating back to his time working as a congressional aide. While on the Board of Supervisors, he helped secure $4.4 million in improvements at the Glen Park BART station. He takes a cooperative approach to solving problems.
Dufty's priorities for BART include reinvestment for the core system; effective and transparent implementation of the $3.5 billion BART bond, should voters approve it; and making BART stations safe and clean, and more pedestrian and bicycle friendly.
When we met with him, Dufty said he wants to look into what benefits BART provides to its employees, including LGBT workers.
Dufty would be a strong addition to the BART board.'
