Dear Crime, er, Tri Met: From Steve-on-a-Cellphone-from-Tualatin

Dear Tri Met,
It’s bad enough that the recent opening of the 205/Green Line MAX has brought increased crime, more slashing of bus service, fair increases and endless subsidies for development plans that always go wrong, like every previous MAX line.
 
But Milwaukie Light Rail will bring all of that AND worsen every budget shortfall in sight. 
 
Give TriMet your thoughts before they vote to approve their budget and proceed with the madness called Milwaukie Light Rail.
 
At their board meeting 9:00AM Wed the 23rd or e-mail them.
 
Why? Because it’s not funded. Every dime for this $1.4 Billion ($200 million/mile) boondoggle will be borrowed against future operating and basic services revenue at every level.

NE Portland  Dr. T. Allen Bethel
E Multnomah County  Lynn Lehrbach

Here are the TriMet board member e-mail addresses. Do something.

From,
