Streetsblog’s Next Reader Q and A: L.A. Deputy Mayor Borja Leon

Shortly after then-Deputy Mayor for Transportation Jaime De La Vega was appointed to be the General Manager for LADOT, Villaraigosa tapped one of De La Vega's former assistants to take De La Vega's former position.

Compared to De La Vega, Deputy Mayor Borja Leon is something of a mystery.  Even the L.A. Times article announcing his appointment relied mostly on a press release and background interviews with the Mayor's Office.

Well here's our chance to fill in the gaps a little bit.  Leon will continue to work with Metro staff and other board members, and push the America Fast Forward plan in Washington, D.C. and around the country.  But don't let that knowledge limit  your questions, feel free to ask any policy questions about transportation policy in the City of Angels.

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 Friday and I’ll send the top ten to Leon. Once he responds we’ll post the answers here with minimal comment from me (and plenty of comment from you.)
