BART is one of the only transit agencies anywhere across the nation that ended its fiscal year with a budget surplus. This is a sign that the management and board that oversees it is working well to keep the trains on the track.
To keep the progress rolling, The San Francisco Examiner endorses incumbents Tom Radulovich and Lynette Sweet for the BART board of directors.
Both have long tenures on the board — 16 years for Radulovich and nine for Sweet — which gives them the understanding to make decisions regarding the many capital improvements that the transit agency needs to make. Over the next two decades, BART faces a $7.5 billion shortfall in its capital budget. Radulovich and Sweet are well-positioned to help find the funding that will be needed to keep the agency and its passengers moving forward.
