San Francisco Taxi Workers Alliance

Two upcoming elections will be crucial for the taxi industry. On June 5, San Franciscans will elect a new mayor. Whoever wins this critical election will serve out Mayor Lee’s term and then be eligible to run for two additional full terms. The person who is elected in June, therefore, could potentially serve as mayor for the next ten years! In November, Californians will elect a new governor, who can potentially serve for the next eight years.

We encourage all taxi drivers to learn about the candidates, attend debates, and ask questions. To that end, we are publishing this list of candidate forums and interviews. Please note that seating at each event is limited. If you plan to attend, arrive early.
