Come and Talk With a Great, Deep, Broad Coalition at TC8!!!


The Center for Transportation for Excellence in Washington DC monitors transportation sales tax campaigns across the U.S.—the successes, failures and lessons learned. When interviewed earlier this year Director Jason Jordan stressed that the first lesson is that success requires a “great, broad and deep coalition." Jordan said that coalition has to engage the public early, stick together, and keep talking about the value of the transportation investment—that it has to wage what is essentially a “permanent campaign.”

See some of the members of that big coalition below, and join them at Move LA's 8th Annual Transportation Conversation—REGISTER HERE—which is the wind-up and the pitch for LA County’s next sales tax measure, likely to be on the ballot in November 2016. At the LA Cathedral's Conference Center in downtown LA next Monday with lunch beginning at 11:15 a.m.

Don’t miss out. It will be a provocative conversation about what is in Metro’s proposed expenditure plan, and what isn’t—but should be. With LA County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, Professor Dr. Manuel Pastor from USC, and a great, broad, deep coalition including (in alphabetical order):
