Lawmaker quits Bay Area transit committee, citing BART mismanagement

By Kevin Truong, The San Francisco Standard, February 28, 2023

“A California state Senate committee pushing for more funding for Bay Area Rapid Transit and other regional agencies has lost a member, with East Bay representative Steve Glazer calling it quits in a letter on [February 28th].

“In a statement, Wiener said he was ‘disappointed’ by Glazer’s resignation and added that Senate Bill 1488, Glazer’s BART accountability bill, passed the legislature with ‘near-unanimous’ support from the Bay Area delegation before being vetoed.

“BART Board Member Bevan Dufty said he and Board President Janice Li spoke with Glazer about his concerns during a recent trip to Sacramento and are working with lawmakers to find a consensus.

“ ‘We will certainly continue working with the senator and appreciate his important role,’ Dufty said.
