A friend and reader sent me this email:
You know about this new person from Chicago that is our new transportation expert? are we getting a new bus system? Light rail? I know you are doing session stuff on your blog but I would love to see something on this.
Well, I thought I would respond in a couple of ways.
First, the new person – Elain McCloud – will start next Monday. I have sent a request to the City of Tampa to set up an interview. If that can be set up, I will post it here and at Sticks of Fire.
Second, everyone should know about the good work David Piniero does with Tampa Rail. He has a good post today talking about an interview Ed Turanchik gave on WUSF radio last week. Everyone should check out the post and the USF podcast.
I am a big supporter of rail in the Tampa Bay area – but I defer to David’s expertise in bringing the issue to our local readers. His website is a great source of information. Subscribe to his feed and keep up with the Rail issues here in Tampa.
