So.CA.TA. Meeting with David Lazarus

The monthly meeting of Southern California Transit Advocates for
June will feature a dialogue with David Lazarus, business columnist for
the Los Angeles Times.

Mr. Lazarus devoted three recent
columns to the topic of mass transit expansion in the region, receiving
a sizable response from the readership and even local leaders. The
intention is to hear more about his experiences and perspectives while
interacting with the audience.

This will be on Saturday June
12, with the dialogue to take place from 1:00 until 2:00pm at Angelus
Plaza in downtown Los Angeles (255 S. Hill St., 4th floor).

The event is free and open to the public.
