Measure J

Los Angeles Transit Advocate Denny Zane Puts the County’s Transit Initiatives in Perspective Following 2012 Election

VerdeXchange News is pleased to share the following remarks by former Santa Monica City Councilman, Mayor, and Move LA founder Denny Zane at the latter’s event, "Making the Most of MAP-21 in Los Angeles," in which he recasts disappointment with the failure of Measure J to pass last November as a call for more creative and collaborative thinking among transit advocates. Zane’s own suggestions include population-specific promotion of transit ridership, construction acceleration via a combination of federal loans and local investments, and reforming the 2/3rds voter threshold.
