San Francisco, CA — Mayor London N. Breed today announced that she is nominating Jane Natoli to serve on the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Board of Directors.
Natoli is an advocate for safe streets, bicycle lanes, and reliable transit. She currently serves on the Board of the San Francisco LGBT Center and she would be the first trans person to serve on the SFMTA Board of Directors.
“I’m proud to nominate Jane Natoli to the SFMTA Board of Directors,” said Mayor Breed. “She is a leading advocate for safer streets and reliable transit. I am confident that her perspective will benefit the City as we work to achieve our Vision Zero goals and create a more equitable transportation system for all of our residents.”
“It’s an honor to be nominated for this role,” said Natoli. “I personally know the value of safe streets as someone who has unfortunately been hit three times while biking on our streets, which is why I’ve put so much energy into advocating and supporting SFMTA and Director Tumlin in getting protected bike lanes like Folsom and Howard and car-free stretches like Market implemented throughout San Francisco. I’ve also been proud to support efforts to make our public transit more reliable because everyday San Franciscans deserve a system they can count on that gets them from point A to point B safely and quickly.”
Natoli moved to San Francisco in 2013, and became involved in local politics and community organizing. She serves as a Mayoral appointee on the Citizens’ General Obligation Bond Oversight Committee.
“Jane’s day job gives her expertise in financial transparency and analysis,” said Jeffrey Tumlin, SFMTA Director of Transportation. “Her community advocacy, however, is where she shines. She brings otherwise unheard voices to the table, especially the most vulnerable users of our transportation system.”
Natoli is a Financial Crimes Analyst at Stripe, where she specializes in anti-money laundering investigations. She has a B.S. from Iowa State University and is a resident of the Inner Richmond.
