Dufty wins seat on BART board

Former San Francisco Supervisor Bevan Dufty appears to have defeated two other candidates to win a seat on the BART Board of Directors representing San Francisco.

When BART Board Director Tom Radulovich’s District 9 seat became up for grabs late in the election season, three candidates were fully confirmed by mid-August: Dufty, Gwyneth Borden and Michael Petrelis.

Dufty previously worked as San Francisco’s homeless czar after serving on the Board of Supervisors representing District 8 for two terms, and most recently was elected to San Francisco’s Democratic Party board, the DCCC.

As the San Francisco Examiner previously reported, Dufty said he would use his experience in the homeless system to address the homeless populations in city BART stations and ensure BART police serve all people equitably.
