City leaders pushing for train

State Department of Transportation Commissioner Joseph Marie had a chance yesterday to let us all know the particulars of his department's thinking on the busway and commuter rail, but he opted to present the information behind closed doors instead. It's a funny way to run a democracy.
Anyway, read reporter Jackie Majerus' story here.

Just what are they doing to show ANY justification?

Where is the mayor, where is the Chamber.

If they want us to back them, they have to show us what they have done, are doing!

Solution to openess is simple.

If the Mayor and the Chamber could document the rationale and justification, and if THEY told the people, then maybe the state would be forced to respond.

Both sides are copping out as far as I am concerned.
