Did Randy Leonard's comments actually include a reference to AIDS? Do you have a quote?
Wow. In a city that talks about non-automotive forms of transportation so often, these vehicle purchases seem out of step with our long-term goals.
It seems to me that the couplet may be a good idea, but what I think is missing in this article is mention of the fact that a streetcar included in the couplet would effectively create a "transit square" around Powell's. Not even Pioneer Courthouse Square has this, with all sides surrounded by public transit, much less rail lines. Thus, I think it would be fair to say that Powell has an additional vested interest in seeing this project happen.
This is great. Please keep more articles like this coming.
@ragold. If the I-5 bridge, and by necessity I-205 bridge, were tolled, the revenue would go to the construction of the new I-5 bridge, not to maintaining current bus service.
It would have been nice to know how much money this works out as being out of state tax revenue. Does the Mercury know how to access this information? I believe that Novick was trying to get rid of this because he saw this as a tax credit for higher income earners, although, in a way, it does foster more of a political discourse in this state. Thoughts, Mercury? It would have been nice to have seen this article a little bit more fleshed out with different insights into the actual existence of this tax credit.
I recently spoke with a friend who couldn't walk for over two months after surgery after a crash with a drunk driver. Not only did the drunk driver have two previous DUI convictions, he was then given only 5 years in prison with the right to a license after that.
My friend is lucky, but there are those that won't be. When is the state going to step up and do something about this before more people get hurt?
