Our group had a chance to meet the new Coordinator of the San Jose Peace and Justice Center, Michele. We learned that she uses VTA Access (formerly OUTREACH) Paratransit to commute. She know about the scandal that led to the ouster of OUTREACH as VTA’s paratransit provider. She especially likes the pages on our site that feature ways she – and others – can hold VTA accountable for better public transit in
It came as a surprise that she was going to vote against VTA’s Measure B on November 8. She said that she was tired of all the “measures which ask her for money every year.” We will be working with her and the Peace and Justice Center to help more people learn about our group, and grow together.
One more thing: more on our stance on Measure B will be posted later this week. Some of our recent posts will give you a hint on where our group will go with this stance.
