VTA service cuts shortsighted, not in the public interest

EDITOR: It is disappointing to see some members of the VTA Board
of Directors continue to place their personal egos over the public
trust of the transit rider.

It is disappointing to see some members of the VTA Board of Directors continue to place their personal egos over the public trust of the transit rider.

VTA Board members such as San Jose Mayor Ron Gonzales and Sunnyvale City Councilman Manuel Valerio, who approved these shortsighted service cuts, should have done a better job in noting how VTA General Manager Peter Cipolla poorly presented his case for changing the plan from 9 percent service cuts over this calendar year, to 9 percent service cuts effective April 2003.

These “officials” need to learn a lesson about the public trust from Santa Clara City Councilmember John McLemore and Palo Alto Mayor Dena Mossar, who remembered their vow to serve the public interest and voted against the proposed service cuts.
