Santa Ana Needs the Political Will to Implement its Proposed Transit Projects
It seems to me that politics are about what regime awards the contracts. Nothing will change even if Pulido is removed. If there is a change in the city council, the new council will get slandered for their decisions concerning the awarding of contracts.
My main concern is whether or not a new council will continue the process and the progress that has been made so far, because progress has been made, or will it dismantle that progress and cause the city to stagnate. I agree that the city will boom because of the projects that are planned, and that there needs to be an improved transportation infrastructure to mitigate new and increased traffic (it is already very bad). There is at least one rapid bus project expected for Bristol street and this along with any other rapid bus lines would well serve Santa Ana’s transit needs in combination with a fixed railway. Santa Ana isn’t alone in supporting this project because it is one that LA’s Metropolitan Transit Authority also wants. Let’s get it done, whomever the mayor and council will be.
