Nicholas Josefowitz

Director, District 8

BART Board of Directors

Executive Board Officer, San Francisco Director

Nick lives in Pacific Heights with his wife, Tali, whom he met in college. Together they are raising their twin boys, Ben & Alec, and spend much of their weekends chasing after them at Alta Plaza Park playground. Nick is running for Supervisor to ensure that our neighborhoods continue to be great places to raise our families.

Nick has a proven track record of going beyond good intentions and delivering real results. After graduating from Harvard in 2005, he founded and ran a successful solar energy development company. He was elected to the BART Board in 2014, and used his entrepreneurial mindset and private sector experience to help put BART back on track. His greatest success was bringing a new data-driven culture to the agency and leading the effort to pass a first-in-the-nation $3.5bn fix-it-first infrastructure bond.

In addition to his BART service, Nick also serves on the Board of Directors of Capital Corridor and on the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) where he is working on reducing highway congestion and eliminating deaths and serious injuries from our roads across the region. Nick is also on the Oversight Committee for the City’s Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure. Previously he served on the San Francisco Environment Commission where he laid the groundwork for San Francisco legislation requiring solar panels on every new building. He also currently serves on the Executive Board of SPUR, and the boards of the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), Generation Citizen Bay Area, and the California League of Conservation Voters. Previously, he served on the Harvard Kennedy School Dean’s Council.
