Public Forum Event: Transportation Experts Panel coming Wed, April 18

Please join me on Wednesday, April 18, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. where the League of Women Voters of Snohomish County will be holding a forum on transportation issues in Snohomish County.  This forum will be held in the Meadowdale High School Great Hall, 6002 168th St SW, Lynnwood.

The panel consists of government transportation leaders as well as expertise from private industry.  I am honored and humbled to have earned the respect to sit at the table with these leaders.  I will be participating as one of the subject matter experts on this panel discussion.  The full list of panelists includes:

Roger Millar, WA State Secretary of Transportation
Peter Rogoff, CEO of Sound Transit
Emmett Heath, CEO of Community Transit
Josh Brown, Executive Director of Puget Sound Regional Council
David Hablewitz, Stop405Tolls.org Activist, IBM Champion
Steve Marshall, Transportation Technology Partnership Manager, City of Bellevue
Senator Steve Hobbs, WA State Senate Transportation Committee
Senator John McCoy, WA State Senate Transportation Committee

Many transportation issues important to Snohomish County residents will be covered, such as how the increased oil and coal train traffic is impacting traffic and emergency first responders, how will mass transit be adapted to serve the population growth in rural areas, funding issues, and definitely tolling.  Questions will also be taken from the audience.  You can find more information at the website for the League of Women Voters of Snohomish County.

Each panelist brings a unique perspective.  In my case, I am not a career transportation employee and I’m not an elected official.  I am a citizen with a career in solving complex problems, a deep understanding of transportation technology and transportation issues, and a desire to make a difference in our community where our government has failed to listen to the people.  Neither salary nor political power influence my perspective, I’m just one of the those citizens who chooses to step up and make a difference — and be the voice of the 33,000+ people who signed the petition online or on paper to eliminate the tolls on I-405.  And that is what makes my perspective unique.

I am not asking for your vote.  I am not running for any office.  I am not asking for money (though donations to support the website and related costs are always appreciated).  I just ask you to come get involved and hear what our transportation leadership has to say.
