Vice President (2020-), Web Manager (2021-), Advertising Manager (2020-), Election Manager (2021-), Director (2017-2019), Past President (1985-1989). Beaver St. neighbor
I am a San Francisco native and moved to Beaver Street in 1982 with my partner and our two Westies. I value DTNA as a Triangle community asset providing a structure for communication between Neighbors, the City and others, thereby ensuring that all who reside, own property, or work in the Triangle continue have a forum to have their voices heard.
My 2024 Goals include: (1) to continue enhancing the DTNA website as a resource for neighborhood information, events and DTNA initiatives, optimizing DTNA communication with the Triangle community and providing transparency in what DTNA is doing, (2) as Advertising Manager, showcasing and supporting local businesses while providing funds to publish the newsletter, (3) facilitating mailing the newsletter to elected officials, City Departments & Services and personnel who have an impact on life in the Triangle so they are aware of Triangle issues and positions.

Director (2021-), Slow Triangle, now Vision 2030 Project Manager (2022-), Land Use Committee Member, DTNA Flore Store Mural representative (2020), Noe St. neighbor
In 2022, Hans launched a “Slow Triangle” working group to have our community define how to handle public spaces in the Duboce Triangle. Supported by research, community workshops, and design by students at UC Berkeley, this effort resulted in the formulation of Vision 2030: a community-driven action plan for traffic calming, accessibility, street greening, and neighborhood identity.
In 2023, Hans teamed up with director Corbin Murao to focus on addressing the most pressing items highlighted in the Vision 2030 research, i.e. traffic calming along Sanchez and Steiner for the safety of Duboce/Steiner and 14th/Sanchez. This will continue to be our focus in 2024 along with broadening our impact by creating opportunities for members and neighbors to champion their own projects with DTNA support.
Director: Corbin Muraro
Director (2023-), Waller St. neighbor
Corbin has co-led the Vision 2030 project over the last year, which produced an active transportation workshop in the spring along with Wiggle Fest on Steiner in the fall. He also has started & grown the DTNA Instagram account to 400 followers, which has successfully helped build community and drive engagement at neighborhood events. Corbin has also been involved with various tech & design needs within the organization, and adds a distinct perspective to the board as a young renter.

Director: Paige Rausser
Having worked in land conservation for the past 26 years, I find urban planning issues and building community as the perfect counterbalance to protecting redwoods in the Santa Cruz mountains. I’ve lived in Duboce Triangle since 2008, and San Francisco (off and on) since 1984 – I’ve seen lots of changes in our beloved city and I know that working together we can continue to enhance the neighborhood that we all love.
My goal in 2024 is to continue to work with land use (emphasis on well thought out affordable housing and reducing the number of empty store fronts), engage on vision 2030 (making the triangle safe for its residents), and continue to help build our membership base (which is a reflection of the vibrant community we call home).
Director: Eric Munsing
Land Use Committee, Vision 2030 Participant, 16th St. neighbor
When I moved to SF in 2010 I fell in love with the tree-lined streets, central location, and architecture of Duboce Triangle. The process of buying a home in 2022 showed me how important it is to welcome diverse neighbors from all walks of life. I want to build on my work with the Land Use Committee by ensuring that the Board includes younger generations trying to find their place in San Francisco’s housing market and economy.
If elected, I will work to ensure that new housing is built to be fair, inclusive, and equitable. I will strengthen ties with the Castro Merchants’ Association to support small businesses along Market Street. I will encourage creative uses of the bulb-out plazas as community spaces.
I'm an avid cyclist and runner, and coordinate volunteer trash cleanups around the city. I live on 16th between Market and Castro.
