[Ebbc-Talk] Candidate(s) need for BART board
Please consider running for a seat on the BART board of directors.
The filing deadline for people who want to run for the BART board of directors is Friday, August 6.
In District Two, the incumbent, Joel Keller, is so far, the only one to file papers.
Filing fee is $750. (more on this later) You do not have to collect signatures.
Just pay the fee and file. It can be done on line.
The pay for being on the BART board of directors is $600 per month (for attending the meetings).
You must reside in the district to run for the board seat of that district.
District Two is fully within Contra Costa County. It includes Pinole, part of El Sobrante, Hercules,
Martinez, North Concord, Bay Point, Pittsburg, Antioch, Oakley, Brentwood, Bethel Island, and
District Two does not nclude Clayton, but it goes from there south to the Alameda County Line
and east to the eastern boundary of Contra Costa County.
A transportation activist who, alas, lives two blocks outside of District Two boundaries, is unhappy with
the incumbent and the fact that he is running unopposed. He would run if he lived in the district.
As it is, he is willing to help out with the filing fee, with the writing of the candidate statement,
and with campaigning and fund raising. e-mail him at
GreenReports@... if you are interested.
You would have to attend the candidate nights and speak. Of course, in the unlikely event that you
were elected, you'd have to serve on the BART board! This offer is on the up and up.
Call me if you want to talk about it. (925) 439-5848
