Editorial: Legislature should reverse BART’s deceit of voters

Published Thursday February 23

(Jose Carlos Fajardo/Bay Area News Group Archives) A BART train arrives at the MacArthur station in Oakland.

3 East Bay representatives deserve great credit for trying to restore some fiscal sanity and honesty to BART.

The Bay Area’s critical transit district is being run under a cloud of deceit. District officials last year convinced voters to pass a $3.5 billion bond measure for capital projects. They promised that the district would continue to kick in its fair share, but less than 3 months after the election they are moving to renege on that .

As reasonable as these measures are, Baker and Glazer will have a tough time garnering support in the labor-dominated Legislature.

Article length: About 400 words.
