OAKLAND (KCBS)— BART is facing criticism for not publicizing that filings are now open for the transit agency’s Board of Directors. One East Bay city councilman is hoping there are interested people so incumbents don’t run unopposed.
The councilman from Orinda, Steve Glazer, speaking for himself, points out there is no notification that July 14 is the opening date for filing for three weeks for those seeking a BART board of directors’ position.
“They have more than 5,300 posters on trains. I can’t find any, maybe you can, that lets people know that their most important office is now open for election,” he said.
