Re: “STA's trying to figure out why, exactly, it barely lost the election

Bus people are going to say we need more buses!
I don't consider buses mass transit!
I'm not opposed to paying more in taxes... but I want to see more diversification in our transit options... not more buses. They say that the rail option was not feasible/cost prohibitive. Was that the STA that funded that study? Why is it that every major European city has street trams or subway lines? Spokane once had an entire network of street cars, was it the oil companies that bought up all of those street car companies and closed them down?... Street trams can be run off electric instead of gas powered buses that pollute our environment with their exhaust. We have amazing interstates and wide roads that can handle a lot of traffic efficiently. We already spend millions on roads and bridges. It's time to start taking the money we already have and diversifying it into other solutions that will allow for growth. Spokane only needs to look to Portland to see how they have diversified their transit to allow rail to go from the airport to downtown and beyond. For all those reasons is why I said no to more buses.

Re: “Spokane a "fantasy made real" for young couples according to a dating website. Do you agree?

If you are on a budget a truly free new site I joined recently was 2connects.com Many sites say they are free, I know, but this one really was. Not a whole lot of members yet, but for free they seem like a pretty good site. Hope to be of some help.
