Tom Radulovich: For the Central Subway before he was against it

BART director Tom Radulovich is the only elected offical in San Francisco to voice any doubts about the Central Subway project. But he was for it before he was against it. He endorsed Proposition K, the sales tax for transportation projects city voters passed in 2003, which advertised the Central Subway as one of its projects. 

Check out the Voters Handbook for November, 2003 (pages 159-176), where you will find his endorsement. Note that the Ballot Simplification Committee puts "Maintenance of local streets" at the top of the list of what the money was to be used for.

Hard to justify City Hall's $238 million bond to repair city streets on the November ballot when the city is squandering so much Prop. K money on the Central Subway project---money that should be spent to keep our streets in good order.

The Grand Jury report (Central Subway: Too much money for too little benefit) on the Central Subway project released yesterday.

Let's attack the lone elected official against this stupid project. Shit, he's come to his senses, you should be patting him on his back.

No kidding. You're an idiot.

I threw him a bouquet here on the issue. But he has a lot to atone for---all the anti-car crap and, perhaps the worst project he supports, the Market/Octavia Plan.

But credit where it's due: he's the first progressive lemming to break from the pack on an important issue.

I have heard Tom in action years ago..waxing poetic about in I am ok about building to a standard height throughout SF, like Paris. I never before heard such a pompose person. What a blow hard.
