Update: Video from the Bob Filner Press Conference

San Diego Historic Streetcars, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) and endorses no political candidate. However last Sunday, Congressman Bob Filner did endorse our project and we greatly appreciate his support and the visibility it can bring to our efforts. Check out the video footage of the event above!

We hope to continue to have the leaders of our city and our region recognize the Class 1 streetcars for what they are  — beautiful historic treasures — and also for what they can be: practical people movers on a national historic streetcar line, connecting and revitalizing our downtown and uptown neighborhoods.

If you’d like to get involved, please take a moment to find out how you can over at our website.

A Big Endorsement for the Class 1 Streetcars!

Bob Filner shows his support for the Class 1 streetcars

Last Sunday our project was paid a visit by the Bob Filner mayoral campaign at Old Trolley Barn Park! Congressman Filner took time to address attendees and the press on the merits of our streetcars and what bringing a historic Class 1 streetcar line to San Diego could do for our city. Thanks a ton, Bob! We’re glad to have your support.

We invited Councilman Carl DeMaio out as well, but unfortunately his schedule was too packed this weekend. We hope to get you out to the streetcar soon, Carl!

We’d like to thank all of our supporters who made it out to this event on short notice. We couldn’t be where we are today without you all.
