Sleepy week for the supes

If you like to keep up on the Board of Supervisors meetings, next week is going to be a snoozer. Not only is the full Board of Supervisors meeting canceled on Tuesday but so is every Board of Supervisors committee meeting.

The cool down of the legislative business next week occurs just two weeks after the supervisors took a 21 day legislative summer recess. And a week before Mayor Gavin Newsom will submit to the board his plan for dealing with the impact of the state’s budget on the city’s own budget.

But if you really miss Board of Supervisors President David Chiu speaking in a public forum, there’s an opportunity. Chiu will be out at the Herbst Theatre Tuesday night for an event hosted by David Byrne, well known for being part of the Talking Heads rock band. Byrne is hosting an 8pm talk about “Bike Advocacy and the Urban Environment.” Chiu will join others on stage including Leah Shahum, the Director of the San Francisco Bike Coalition, and Mike Teitz, former Director of Research at the Public Policy Institute of California.
