  • So what does Antonovich want? By regional distribution, does he mean geographic regardless of population? Does he mean by where people live? If so, shouldn’t where people work count as much as where people live since that will establish the commuting patterns?

    Give them the Gold Line already if that is what it will take to get them to support the sales tax.

  • Antonovich talking about equity is such such a load of BS. The seven cities directly south of the Foothill cities (Alhambra, San Gabriel, Rosemead, Monterey Park, Temple City, El Monte, and South El Monte) have one third more population living at more than twice the density but making half as much money. The poverty rate in these cities is twice as high or more than that of the Foothill cities, yet Antonovich still insists that cities like Arcadia, Monrovia and Bradbury aren’t getting their “fair share”.

    Investment in public transit could have real positive impacts on the livelihoods of workers throughout the region. Unfortunately, politicians like Antonovich see transportation funding only as a means to grease up their political machines as well as the suburban real estate markets in their jurisdictions. Antonovich’s arrogance, cynicism, and greed are truly astounding.

    Here are the stats:
