Bay Area Monitor

Published six times a year by the League of Women Voters of the Bay Area Education Fund, the Bay Area Monitor covers transportation, air quality, water quality, open space, and land use issues in the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. The publication is distributed to League members, elected and appointed officials, government employees, libraries, media outlets, nonprofit organizations, business leaders, and engaged residents. Every edition is also posted online at bayareamonitor.org.

The League of Women Voters of the Bay Area believes that government at the regional level should be structured so that it can effectively and responsibly solve those problems that transcend political boundaries. The LWVBA, by including all nine Bay Area Counties, makes possible League Study and Action on region-wide problems and issues.


Issue papers are intended to explore areas that are still somewhat controversial among Bay Area Leagues and murky in regional decision making processes. The perspectives are NOT an attempt to portray a League consensus or to state League positions. Posting on the League Website with the opportunity for continuing discussion may open new paths in the difficult terrain of regional decision making.


The League of Women Voters takes a stand on issues and voices the opinion of thousands of its members. Over the years we have addressed, plan bay area, transportation issues, health and welfare concerns, climate change as well as other socio-economic topics.
