Today’s Guest Writer: Dana Gabbard

Dana Gabbard has written several stories for Streetsblog over theyears helping to advance issues such as the passage of Measure R and the advancement of many of the transit expansion projects being proposed.  Gabbard has been a member of the Southern California Transit Advocates for fifteen years, and has helpfully written a piece about his roots in advocacy.

Here's a quick personal anecdote about Dana.  When I first started writing Street Heat almost two years ago I ran into Dana two times in the first week: first at the 2007 Alt Car Expo and later that week at a So.CA.TA.  meeting on the Subway to the Sea.  Since then?  Our paths haven't crossed once.
