Update on BART
Update on BART

My name is Debora Allen and I am an elected member of the BART Board of Directors, representing District 1 in Contra Costa County. I take pride in being the voice of the suburban transit rider -- commuter advocate focused on improving both the BART rider experience and working conditions for BART employees. I am also intent on bringing fiscal stability to BART, while prioritizing infrastructure improvements needed to attract new riders and support 21st Century growth. 

Since my 2016 election, I've met with hundreds of BART riders and workers, in addition to countless police officers, firefighters, community service organizations, and elected leaders to ensure I represent ALL BART stakeholders. 

I am a politically independent, experienced and thoughtful leader focused on the transit system BART was designed to be.  Representing central Contra Costa, I bring over 25 years of experience in fiscal management, construction operations, public pensions and decision analysis to the office, and I am working hard for the benefit of our riders, our workers, our community and our taxpayers.

Transitioning from Business to Best Selling Author
Transitioning from Business to Best Selling Author

International Bestselling Author Tim Tigner began his career in Soviet Counterintelligence with the US Army Special Forces, the Green Berets. That was back in the Cold War days when, "We learned Russian so you didn't have to," something he did at the Presidio of Monterey alongside Recon Marines and Navy SEALs.
With the fall of the Berlin Wall, Tim switched from espionage to arbitrage. Armed with a Wharton MBA rather than a Colt M16, he moved to Moscow in the midst of Perestroika. There, he led prominent multinational medical companies, worked with cosmonauts on the MIR Space Station (from Earth, alas), chaired the Association of International Pharmaceutical Manufacturers, and helped write Russia's first law on healthcare.
In his free time, Tim has climbed the peaks of Mount Olympus, hang glided from the cliffs of Rio de Janeiro, and ballooned over Belgium. He earned scuba certification in Turkey, learned to ski in Slovenia, and ran the Serengeti with a Maasai warrior. He acted on stage in Portugal, taught negotiations in Germany, and chaired a healthcare conference in Holland. Tim studied psychology in France, radiology in England, and philosophy in Greece. He has enjoyed ballet at the Bolshoi, the opera on Lake Como, and the symphony in Vienna. He's been a marathoner, paratrooper, triathlete, and yogi.
Intent on combining his creativity with his experience, Tim began writing thrillers in 1996 from an apartment overlooking Moscow's Gorky Park. Twenty years later, his passion for creative writing continues to grow every day.
