Yes Tanya is correct. She has the guts to say it out loud.

But I would go 2 more steps...Terminate 100% of the BART System...Managers and most of all the BART Board...Get rid of everyone and start over.

The rotten apples are rotting everything and everyone.

Close down BART for 7 days and put the signs out "HELP WANTED"...Print up a working agreement and hand it to every person looking to get hired.

This must come from the Governor. He must appoint a committee of at least 7 independent people the restructure the entire BART operating system.


Thank for listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo.

And yes I will be first in line to file a application to be hired.

News report just showed a really pathetic, scary, motly crew of union workers hovering around the microphone. I didn't see a single one of the droolers, that could be worth the $100k packages they receive. The system is failing us, the taxpayers and riders. It is so wrong that the public should be held hostage by this scux.
