Friday, August 27 5:45 pm San Francisco Leon Phat at Critical Mass
Join San Francisco's most daring supervisorial candidate, Leon Phat, as he starts a revolution (of his bicycle wheels) at this Friday's SF running of the Critical Mass bullish on human-scale transportation activists and advocates.
Leon Phat calls for a super-charged community land rent benefit district across San Francisco which recaptures the value added to parcels by their proximity to MUNI and BART. Leon wants that value added by public infrastructure to defray MUNI and BART operation, indeed to make city center public transportation fare-free.
Visit http://www.LeonPhat.org and make up your mind to ask this year's supervisorial candidates why they squeak and yammer about supporting small business and affordable housing while they say next to nothing about retrieving to the public treasury the huge land rent values added by public goods and services (including MUNI) to privately held parcels of land.
Meet Leon at 5:45 pm at usual Critical Mass ignition point, The Embarcadero at Market.
