    Regarding Mr. Herrera’s plan for Muni…. I would love to ask him for his Clipper record showing how often he has taken Muni to get to work/home/shopping/out for social engagements. In fact, I would love to see ALL the mayoral candidates share their experience actually RIDING muni before they come up with the same, recycled, theories on how to improve it. Also, show the full thought process on HOW they would ensure “full funding”, as we know each Mayor has not been able to follow up on that promise. Greg at N Judah Chronicles had a great voter guide for the last round of elections, I would love to see something similar for this election.
