President: Kimyn Braithwaite
A resident of Duboce Triangle for over fourteen years, Kimyn considers herself very lucky to be able to call the Duboce Triangle her home. She understands that we are living in an era like nothing any of us have ever experienced before: a once-in-a-century pandemic, its economic fallout impacting our neighbors and small businesses, the largest civil rights protests in American history, four years of a fecklessly run federal government, a growing movement to redirect city funds for addressing quality of life issues away from our police department and toward our social workers. What we are experiencing collectively is mind boggling, and how to live within this chaos has been, at times, overwhelming for all of us.
Kimyn has been leading DTNA through Land Use, Slow Streets, addressing public safety, affordable housing and retail vacancies and other initiatives in working on a neighborhood level to improve the quality of live and restore some stability to living and working in the Duboce Triangle.
Vice President: Bob Bush
Bob, a San Francisco native, rejoined the Board in 2017 as he retired from his surgical practice at Davies Campus, CPMC Sutter Health. Bob sees the DTNA as a valuable Triangle Community asset providing a structure for communication between Neighbors, the City and others, and ensuring that all neighbors that reside in the Triangle – homeowners, tenants and small businesses – continue have a forum to have their voices heard.
Secretary: Erik Honda
Erik has lived on Henry Street near Castro since 1992, and has volunteered with DTNA since the early 2000s. He serves on the Land Use Committee. He is committed to holding our public servants accountable, and has focused energy on improving the equity of our neighborhood, affordable housing, public safety and the aesthetics by working toward filling our empty storefronts with local businesses and our streets with trees.
Nick is an active member of the Land Use Committee. A San Francisco resident for nearly 30 years, he is committed to improving public safety in the neighborhood as well as preserving the qualities that make Duboce Triangle so unique, including our historic structures, our pedestrian friendly streetscapes and retail corridors, our tree lined sidewalks and our interior block open spaces.
Editor: Rose Linke
A writer and editor by trade, Rose has spent over a decade at the creative studio A Hundred Monkeys. She currently co-edits the annual publication series of the new media arts salon Living Room Light Exchange. Rose believes in community publishing as a social practice. Having seen the decimation of local news, and the challenges this poses to maintaining an informed and engaged society, Rose felt a calling to role of Editor for the Duboce Triangle News to strengthen the civitas of our neighborhood. She is hopeful that in the years to come we can work together as neighbors to fight for the necessary and urgent adaptations that will give us both a greater sense of community, and an increased resilience in the face of our changing city and our changing climate.
Director: Paige Rausser
Paige finds urban planning issues especially interesting as a counter balance to her 20+ year career in land conservation. She has worked diligently to protect coastal sage scrub in Southern California and redwoods in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Paige looks forward to engaging on various Duboce Triangle issues that will bring more housing and affordable units to our beautiful neighborhood and improve the quality of life on our streets. Having lived in San Francisco off and on since 1984 she has seen lots of changes, both good and bad, and knows that working together we can continue to enhance the neighborhood that we all love.
