Charles McGlashan, a four-year member of the Golden Gate Bridge District’s board of directors, passed away on Sunday, the second time this month that a local transit agency has had to deal with a tragic loss of one of their members.

According to a posting on the bridge district’s website, McGlashan suffered a heart attack in Lake Tahoe on Sunday. He was 49.

Along with serving on the bridge district’s board of directors, McGlashan was also a member of the Marin County Board of Supervisors, chaired the Marin Energy Authority, and helped oversee the formation of the Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit Board.

McGlashan’s death happened just nine days after Cameron Beach, a board director for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, who died in his West Portal home of cardiac arrest. He was 62.
