Should the San Fernando Valley get more Transit?
Bianca Barragan from Curbed LA sums up the San Fernando Valley’s beef with Measure R:
“The Valley clearly has been shortchanged by Measure R,” City Councilmember and Metro Boardmember Paul Krekorian tells the Daily News, referring to the 2008 voter-approved measure to fund transportation projects with a half-cent sales tax increase. Metro’s considering asking for more money on the 2016 ballot and some members of the board are threatening to withhold support for the new measure unless it gives priority to projects in the Valley.
Some of the comments are hilarious. Calling out the valley for not supporting mass transit when other parts of the city rejected it’s expansion(who voted for Henry Waxman?) is a bad argument.
