Wow, a person made a post trying to help out incoming San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Director Noah Budnick by getting the word out about an apartment hunt
And check it, the poster is just like me, as he doesn’t agree with with everything the SFBC does AND he thinks the SFBC is an effective advocacy group.
And here it is:
“While I don’t agree with everything SFBC does, it is certainly the most effective advocacy group I’ve ever belonged to. And here’s a way to help them: by finding their new director, who is moving here from the east coast, an apartment in San Francisco. I know xx#xers care a lot about bicycle advocacy, and we all know that finding an apartment here is a bloodsport where knowing tenants and landlords is a definite advantage, hence this message.
• Close to a BART stop
• Two bedrooms
• Less than $3,000/month
If you have any leads, please email me and I’ll make the connection.”
The kicker is that NY Noah wants his crib to be in SF and he wants it to be close to a BART stop.
(IDK, these requirements rule out Crackton as an option.)
I think I’d advise young Noah to lower his expectations, but who knows – it’s in any event smart to get the word out.
This was the first of many replies:
“Awwwww, he’s adorable. I hear Daly City is nice…”
Now lately, the SFBC has stopped boasting of its increasing membership, because lately membership is way down – thousands of people have decided not to re-up. Now why is that?
Now you tell me – which is a bigger problem to solve? Is it:
1. Finding a “nice” 2-bed close to BART for $2K-something in 2014; or
2. Finding 2K-something more people to join the SFBC AND then get them continue paying dues, year after year.
That’s a toughie.
