MTA board meeting of July 17, 2012

The July 17 SFMTA board hearing is linked below. Twelve of the fourteen speakers under general public comment, from 1:05 - 1:34, are from taxi (Hansu Kim - Tone Lee - Jeet Ghotra - Barry Taranto - Brian Rosen - Bill Mounsey - Keith Dennis - Mary McGuire - Mark Gruberg - Emil Lawrence - Barry Korengold - G. Singh). The Uber topic is addressed by a few speakers.

During a prior item, it was revealed that the finance officer, Sonali Bose, is no longer in the taxi reporting chain, so that the taxi director (Chris Hayashi's position) now reports directly to Transportation Director, Ed Reiskin.
