Mark Valentine
I live in the Richmond District where my wife and I rent a one bedroom apartment. We've lived in this neighborhood for over 25 years and love its open spaces, its markets, and its myriad restaurants and the diversity of people who call it home. I'm an advocate of mass transit and have been waiting for bus rapid transit to come to the Geary corridor for well over a decade. I'm also concerned, as most San Franciscans are, about the lack of housing options for people with low and moderate incomes. That said, I want to see the proposed affordable housing density bonus program handled judiciously so that the overall character of the neighborhood is maintained. I am involved with several nonprofit organizations including the Center for a New American Dream as well as the San Francisco Green Film Festival.
