New Harbor Board member wins by NIMBY networking

Sabrina Brennan is the same person (activist) who protested against highway widening at the San Mateo Transit Authority public meeting in Pacifica a few years ago.  She thinks you should a ride your bicycle to work.

Half Moon Bay Review/Mark Noack, 1/25/13. "Brennan takes oath for harbor board, Moss Beach resident adds new Coastal voice."

"Moss Beach resident Sabrina Brennan was officially sworn in on Saturday for her new seat on the San Mateo County Harbor Commission.

Brennan, a graphic-design business owner, joins the five-member board after handily winning one of three open seats in an election in November. She received 24.5 percent of the vote, emerging as the top choice for voters among the six candidates.

....  Perhaps surprisingly, she received more votes than incumbent harbor board members Pietro Parravano and Leo Padreddii. Speaking Monday, Brennan explained that her victory came because of a coordinated campaign of phone banks, mailers and precinct walks targeting mainly the urban Bayside rather than the coast."

I'll give Sabrina credit for being very active. I see her at lots of meetings, and she was even campaigning out in front of the Linda Mar Safeway one day.
