30/10

Villaraigosa on Time Magazine Webisode on “Tackling Traffic in L.A.”

As 30/10 morphs into the national campaign known as "America Fast Forward," so does the media campaign to make a federal loan or bonding program a reality that would allow Los Angeles to build the Measure R transit projects in the next ten years.

Yesterday, Time Magazine posted a video featuring Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa discussing the future of transit funding and the bi-partisan coalition backing infrastructure investments.  If you've been following the local discussions around 30/10 or America Fast Forward, most of the video won't be anything new.  The timing of the placement is perfect as the Mayor heads to Washington D.C. today to lobby Congress and speak to the progressive economics organization Move America Forward.

A feature in TIME Magazine, even in the form of a web video, is important national exposure for the Mayor and America Fast Forward.  The Mayor doesn't waste the opportunity, pointing out that changes in federal law that allow for faster infrastructure investment are good for other major cities, such as New York and Chicago, as well as Los Angeles.
