Next Tuesday, Metro CEO Art Leahy will be the featured speaker of the Transit Coalition at their monthly meeting for the second time in as many months.  The reason for Leahy’s return?   There were so many questions at the last meeting, he didn’t have a chance to answer them all.

If you’re like me, and can’t make next Tuesday’s meeting, and have a question for the CEO, feel free to leave it in the comments section.  Transit Coalition Executive Director Bart Reed does read Streetsblog and will take your questions to Leahy.  However, if you want to be 100% sure that your question is asked, there’s nothing like attending the meeting yourself.

If I had a question…While we’ve heard plenty from Metro’s public relations team on the B.R.U. civil rights complaint to the Federal Transit Administration, it might be interesting to hear an opinion from the top man at the agency.

The Coalition meets from 6:46 P.M. to 8:30 P.M. at Philippe The Original, 1001 N. Alameda St. Los Angeles CA. 90012.
