I’m pleased to update you about the Springfield Republican op-ed on public transportation that was just published, co-signed by Clare Higgins of Community Action Pioneer Valley, David Gadaire of MassHire Holyoke, Jessica Collins of the Public Health Institute of Western MA, and myself on behalf of the Network. This is a powerful example of collaboration at work in tackling our region’s central challenges.
In the spirit of that collaboration, big thanks to Josh Ostroff of Transportation for Massachusetts who shepherded this op-ed to publication.
Stay tuned for possible repeat appearances in the Daily Hampshire Gazette and Greenfield Recorder (a separately written op-ed on this issue previously appeared in the Berkshire Eagle).
Also big thanks to all of our legislative leaders in this Network who are pushing this agenda forward at the State House. We look forward to continuing the work together to create a public transportation system that makes a decent quality of life possible for all.
