Hard to improve on the first two comments.
Mr Brian, how is "stealing" $5,000,000 dollars (the CRC bailout funds) something to celebrate?
Will you please tell us what part of TRIMET's budget was robbed to pay for this?
This whole project was created with lies and half truths.
If this service ran 7 days a week, or 5 days a week,once an hour, or even once every two hours, then MAYBE, JUST MAYBE I could have some sympathy for WES and those involved in planning it.
Now Mr Hansen is whining about budget shortfalls!
He wants to cut already existing services now!
SHAMEFUL, utterly disgraceful.
Sure it will remove a "few" cars from the road, but nobody will notice.
Here we are at the gates of the worst economic times in decades, and our public officials "play" with our tax money like we are living in the midst of an economic boom!
Of course, its no surprise. Our government officials, from the president all the way down to the General Manager of TRIMET believe that they own the government and can do whatever they want with our tax revenues.
The truth of it is, they do and they can, because the public tolerates this outrage.
