Transit advocate nominated for SFMTA board
SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee announced Thursday that he has nominated Joel Ramos to serve on the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency's board of directors.
The nomination of Ramos will go to the Board of Supervisors to approval.
He would fill the spot left vacant when Cameron Beach unexpectedly passed away last month.
Ramos is a community planner at TransForm, a public transportation advocacy group, and a member of the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association, according to the mayor's office.
He is a lifelong transit rider who obtained bachelor's degree in geography with an emphasis in city planning from San Francisco State University.
"As a regular transit rider and a daily bicyclist, Joel Ramos will bring valuable experience to the SFMTA board as he is passionate about all modes of transportation, is a team builder that works with the community, and is focused on a transit-oriented city," Lee said in a statement.
