"building a rail line in a corridor where no busy bus route exists is a complete waste of money."

There will be a mayoral forum on Tuesday, October 15 in the Cowles Auditorium of the Humphrey School. The event is sponsored by the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition, Streets.mn, the Interdisciplinary Transportation Student Organization (ITSO), the Minnesota Urban Studies Students Association (MUSSA), UrbanMSP, and the Alliance for Metropolitan Stability. 

The topic of the forum is the future of transportation in Minneapolis. Transportation is one of the most important issues facing Minneapolis. What will the next mayor’s positions be on supporting all modes of transportation? How can we accelerate transit ridership? How can we move Minneapolis toward sustainable active lifestyles? We hope the event will allow the mayoral candidates to express their plans to make it easier to move around Minneapolis.

The forum will be moderated by Paula Pentel, coordinator of the Urban Studies Program at the University of Minnesota.

Are you really trying to make the case that it's better to not have low-cost or free health insurance because a state website would have some of your medical history?
