The City Follows Through?

On November 22, Sacramento Vice Mayor Rob Fong and City Manager Ray Kerridge sent a letter to CalTrans Director Will Kempton. In the letter, they reiterate the City's
opposition to the expansion of Highway 50. They also clearly state the City's support of
"transportation investment that promotes density, increases transit ridership and walkable communities, and also alleviates congestion and improves air quality." The letter closes by requesting a meeting with Director Kempton "to further discuss the HOV lane project."

You can read the entire letter here.

The Vice Mayor and the City Manager deserve our congratulations for following through on the City Council's official position opposing this project. This is the sort of leadership we expect from elected officials and city staff. You might consider contacting them to thank them for their support.

(You also might consider contacting Mayor Fargo, who also serves as SACOG chair, to ask what she intends to do to make the City's opposition clear!)
