A Candidate’s Plea from Caroline Bird

  • April 26, 2011

Dear Friends of Starr King Open Space,

When I moved to Potrero Hill fifteen years ago, I quickly discovered Starr King Open Space.  I didn’t know it had a name, I didn’t know it was protected, and I didn’t really care.  It was my urban oasis.  Over time I learned that neighbors helped tend it, but I was more interested in enjoying the space quietly on my own.  It wasn’t until a neighbor approached me two years ago and told me that the Open Space was in trouble that I decided to give back to this land that I loved.

Many of you also rallied to that cry for help two years ago—some of you were the ones doing the rallying!  Nineteen of us ran for the election, and over 50 of you showed up to vote.  You have written letters, spoken at hearings, come to work parties, supported the organization financially, and much, much more.  Together, we have saved a struggling organization and have turned it into a vibrant organization.

But it cannot manage itself.  Starr King Open Space needs you to rally again. We are about to have our first election since the restructuring of the board, and we need candidates who care about the Open Space to run. Most of our board will be turning over.  This is a pivotal moment in the history of the organization.  All of the organizational structures are back in place—now we need a board to sustain the Open Space and to involve the community in its stewardship.
