    What does Sandra Fluke have to do with transportation?

  • We often include political news in headlines, especially when someone announces their running for office and have a good chance to win. If you look earlier this week and last week you’ll see notices on Wendy Greuel and Ted Lieu running for Congress. Going back just a little farther you’ll see the same for Bobby Schriver running for Supervisor.

  • Niall Huffman

    Legislators make decisions about transportation policy. I’m interested to know who’s in the running to become a legislator representing the LA area, especially if it’s someone like Fluke who has wide name recognition and stands a pretty good chance of getting elected.
