Lindblad for Assembly engaged the Community in June 2010 leading up to the November 2010 Election In Favor of Light Rail along Van Nuys Boulevard and the Community Roared back Yes! Now we have Metro raring to go Rail On Van Nuys!

Metro’s flawed unraveling of this feasible alternative is unconscionable.

Our 2010 Campaign for our 39th Assembly seat ngaged the public to push for Light Rail mass transit along Van Nuys Boulevard, an initiative subsequently picked up by Metro to usher Transit oriented development in historic commercial cores to help meet California’s Climate 2020 Mandate to lower GHG by 1/3 based on 1990 levels and to attain at least 1/3 renewable energy economy.

And the community stakeholders near unanimously replied yes to my question: “Would you like to see a return of modern light rail in place of the red car that was removed sixty years ago?”
Metro’s engagement with stakeholders in the corridor resulted in the alternative advanced with light rail the entire 12.7 mile length from Ventura Boulevard to the Orange Line to two regional Amtrak/metrolink station connections in VanNuys and Sylmar/San Fernando at the beginning of 2013 reflecting my earlier experientially proven consensus.
How dare Metro cave to the Extinction protocols of a few elitist nimbys and oil-based profiteering resulting in betraying the community by amputating both ends of the 12.7 mile length, requiring environmentally, economically and logistically costly, and an unnecessary, complete waste of taxpayer dollar for two major transfer points.
What’s the economic or environmental point of having 6 miles of light rail where the 12.7 mile alternative had already advanced?
Nimbys, we have identified you and we know who you are and who your failed candidate is. Ya basta! Cambio con Jack Lindblad for Senate 2014, 18th District shall settle these scores.
