Joel Ventresca is running for San Francisco mayor.

Joel Ventresca is a long-time San Francisco city resident who’s a retired airport analyst. He’s run for public office before and bills himself as the most progressive candidate in this race. 

He says he wants to make public transportation free, open up a new United Nations in the Presidio dedicated to climate change, and use renewable public power to make the city carbon-neutral within a decade. 

How will he pay for it? Revenue bonds.
