We are new to District 5, and delighted to be here. Sophie has provided an amazing welcome, and great help connecting us to the community. As a Professor of City & Regional Planning, focused on transportation planning, I am impressed with Sophie’s commitment to transforming Berkeley with 21st Century infrastructure for walking, biking, and sustainability, and look forward to working with her to improve our new hometown. Sophie embodies the best of what we came here for – old world neighborliness and new world vision. She has our strongest support!
