The featured speaker before this month’s Southern California Transit Advocates meeting will be Denny Zane, the former Santa Monica Councilman and Mayor and Metro insider who is as responsible as anyone for the passage of Measure R.  Zane and the It’s Time to Move L.A. Coalition organized the January 2008 that was the beginning of the movement that led to the sales tax increase that will fund transit projects for the next thirty years.

So.CA.TA. is billing Zane’s appearance as a chance to talk with a transit insider about the future of Metro and the growth of transit in Los Angeles.  In addition to his work on Measure R, Zane is also the former executive director for the Coalition for Clean Air and led the campaign that led to the purchase of the Right of Way for the Expo Line.

Zane’s presentation will begin at 1:00pm this Saturday, with the So.CA.TA business
meeting to follow at 2:15pm. The event is free and open to the public
and will be held on the 4th floor of Angelus Plaza, 255 S. Hill St in
downtown Los Angeles.
