Fabulous Turnout for Supervisor's Hearing on TNC's
But it wasn't just the numbers. It was the effectiveness of the speakers coupled with the open minded attitude of the members of the Supervisor's Neighborhood Services & Safety Committee that left me feeling upbeat.
Supervisor's Eric Mar (photo - who called the meeting), David Campos and Norman Yee took in the hearing with Supervisor John Avalos joining them later. The Supervisors exhibited open minds, asked good questions and showed a willingness to learn. This was a refreshing contrast for those of us who took part in the CPUC Hearings on Ridesharing last year where most questions clearly had been decided before we walked into the room.
Many people think that the Supervisors have little or no power to effect the CPUC ruling but that was not the impression that I got from the hearing.
Have to driver tonight. Details next post.
