Next Up for the Streetsblog Reader Questionnaire: Zev Yaroslavsky

If there’s one politician we’ve given a hard time to here at Streetsblog, it’s County Supervisor and Metro Board Member Zev Yaroslavsky. Yesterday while we were IM’ing on Facebook (really!) I asked if he would join LADOT General Manager LADOT General Manager Jaime De La Vega and LAPD Sgt. David Krumer in answering a Streetsblog reader questionnaire.

As we’ve done in the past, just submit any questions you have that are related to transportation or planning in the comments section by next Wednesday and I’ll send the top ten to the Supervisor.  Once he responds we’ll post the answers here with minimal comment from me (and plenty of comment from you.)

I know Streetsblog hasn’t always been easy on Yaroslavsky, but I also know his kids read the website…so be nice!  Failing that, at least be more polite than I am.

And don’t bother asking him if he’s running for Mayor, I’ll manage to sneak that question in with one of the other ones.
