Rescue Muni last night endorsed candidates Doug Chan, Rob Black,
Bevan Dufty, and Sophie Maxwell for November election to the San
Francisco Board of Supervisors.
The public transit advocacy group also recommended a yes vote
on Proposition 1A, a no vote on Proposition 90, and a yes vote
on Proposition E.
The organization has more than 400 members, reported Andrew Sullivan,
who has served as Rescue
Muni chair for eight of ten years since Rescue Muni was founded.
