The Alliance for Public Transportation will meet on Wednesday 8/6 from 11:30-1 pm in the offices of Jackson Walker, 100 Congress, Ste. 1100. This meeting will be the day before the Council's planned vote to set urban rail on the November ballot. In addition to urban rail, Beth Ann Ray will offer a presentation on the Chamber of Commerce's Five-step Plan for improving Austin's mobility.
In addition, the folks with the rail campaign are asking that we submit letters to the Statesman in support of rail. Attached is a document with several sample letters. Please feel free, though, to personalize these letters for yourself or for any group that may submit a letter. It would be great if you could get the letter in before next Wednesday. Having positive letters continue to come in through mid-August will also be helpful.
Please reply if you will be eating lunch with us. We ask for $5 to cover the cost of lunch.
Have a great weekend,
Alliance for Public Transportation
