Jonathan and Kevin de León

“I am proud to endorse Jonathan Lyens to be the next member of the BART Board of Directors. I have known Jonathan for more than a decade, and I have seen firsthand how his experience as a person with a disability fuels his drive to make the world a more fair and equitable place for all of us. Also, as a CPA and past Chair of the CA Board of Equalization, I know that his experience in public budgeting and large bond projects will be critical to ensure BART’s finances remain strong for years to come and the newly voter authorized $3.5 billion bond will be put to good use in building the BART of the future. We need Jonathan on the BART Board!” – Fiona Ma, Board of Equalization Member
“Jonathan is a proven advocate for access and equity. As a leader in the Richmond District I have seen firsthand his dedication to standing for those without a voice. He is a tireless public servant and nonprofit leader, and has the skills that BART needs to address its fundamental challenges.” – Sandra Lee Fewer, Supervisor
“I am proud to endorse Jonathan to be my next BART Director. As Supervisor I have worked closely with him numerous times to make our city a safer and more welcoming place for everyone. I know that his experience in public budgeting, labor relations and his service on the rebuild of San Francisco General Hospital is just what BART needs.” – Aaron Peskin, Supervisor
