Remember efforts last year on Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) governance reform via AB 1091? VTA reform is back in play again in the State Legislature, thanks to California State Assembly Member Marc Berman.
Assembly Member Berman will have a town hall to discuss this new effort at VTA Governance Reform. That town hall takes place on Wednesday from 6pm-7pm. Speakers at the Town Hall will include:
Current VTA Board Chair and San Jose Vice Mayor Charles “Chappie” Jones
Former VTA Board member and current Santa Clara City Council member Teresa O’Neill
Amalgamated Transportation Union (ATU) Local 265 President & Business Agent John Courtney
Interesting highlights at the December 2, 2021 VTA Board of Directors’ meeting took place.
Among which: Charles “Chappie” Jones, San Jose City Council member, was nominated Chair of the VTA Board for 2022. Rich Constantine, Mayor of Morgan Hill, was nominated Vice Chair of the VTA Board for 2022.
