The Need for Light Rail to be prioritized in the Transportation Sales Tax Work Sessions: 

As we move into the final work session and vote by the Board of County Commissioners, I have to express my disappointment in the absence of any consideration for light rail or some other east – west mass transit option. The U.S. Census was clear: West Orange County added 80,000 new residents yet the only mass transit opportunity being presented as a priority is a second north-south connection. If population growth and traffic congestion aren’t evidence for “demand,” I’m not sure what it is.
