Posted on September 28, 2020 at 7:22 pm by Clay Curtin

Are you interested in impacting local transportation on the Peninsula? The San Mateo County Transit District is seeking applications for a newly formed Measure W Citizens’ Oversight Committee.

The Committee will review tax spending from Measure W to make sure the spending is consistent with the Congestion Relief Plan. As specified in Measure W, the role of the Citizens' Oversight Committee is to receive findings of an independent audit, hold a public hearing, and issue a report annually to provide San Mateo County residents with information regarding how tax proceeds are being spent.

The appointment terms will be staggered; the length of the initial term of each appointee will vary, with no term exceeding three years. Five members will serve initial terms of one year, five other members will serve two year initial terms, and the remaining five members will serve full three year terms. Subsequent terms will be three years for all members. Seats with one, two and three year initial terms will be selected randomly prior to the application process.

The deadline to apply is Friday, October 30, 2020. Applications are available on the SamTrans website
