Don Horsley ignores San Mateo Safe Routes to School Program


The San Mateo County Safe Routes to School (SR2S) Program has been in effect since 2010.

It appears to me that Supervisor Don Horsley and DirectorJames Porter [Director of San Mateo County Public Works] are ignoring the San Mateo County Safe Routes to School (SR2S) Program.

For well over a decade and now since the implementation of the San Mateo County Safe Routes to School (SR2S) Program in 2010, the Board of Supervisors have ignored the [Pescadero Municipal Advisory Council to the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors] requests to improve the roads, add bike lanes, crosswalks and road shoulders leading to both our schools.

Does this program only apply to part of Supervisor Horsley’s District?

There are some bike lanes [non of which arrive at our school’s entrances] in our area but they are not kept clear of debris for local riders and the thousands of visiting riders that come each week, sometimes a day. There are cracks in the bike lanes that can swallow a bike tire.

Supervisor Horsley says he is not Mr. Porters supervisor, so who do you go to if these two top paid county employees are ignoring this program and not maintaining the roads to our schools?

If your Supervisors don’t listen, then why are there “Advisory Councils to the Board of Supervisors”?

Maybe if they don’t want to work as Supervisors we should give them a different title and pay cut?

Don Horsley is a chameleon, he changes like the wind blows or the seasons change. HOW TERRIBLE that San Mateo's Police Chief Susan Manheimer asked her friends to endorse him when he was first running. Horsley has the same moral clause that Sheriff Munks had when he visited the Nevada brothels.
