See You on Saturday?

(Not sure what Dana is talking about? We’re having a fundraiser on Saturday! In addition to a who’s who of transit advocates we’re going to party with LADOT GM Jaime De La Vega, Glendale City Councilman and Metro Board Member Ara Najarian, City Council Member Elect Mike Bonin, and “advocate of the year” Valerie Watson. Get details here or on Facebook. We’re trying to get as many RSVP’s together today for our caterer so think about it if you haven’t already said, “YES!” RSVP to damien@streetsblog.org)

In gratitude to Streetsblog for providing me an outlet to share the vast store of insights I have accumulated over nearly twenty years as an activist on transit issues I will attend the upcoming Streetsblog 5th anniversary fundraiser. And to do my part I am making a special offer — I will answer any transit related question that i’m able to for the rock bottom price of a $1 donation to Streetsblog per question. I think it is a bargain rate for what you are getting.

If you attend you’ll have no problem finding me — I’ll be sitting with the box in the photo adjacent to me. I think the sign on the front of the box is self-explanatory.

See you there?
