BART just sent a press release announcing that Fremont’s own Tom Blalock has been elected president of the BART board of directors. As president, Blalock gets a nifty new title and tiny brief written about him in tomorrow’s paper.
Blalock was last BART President in 2000. That year Bush was elected president, the Middle East Peace Process collapsed, and all those dot-com companies went bust. Hopefully things will go better this time.
