City Affair XIII: Transit Advocacy was a marked success

Despite forecasts of snow, City Affair XIII saw over fifty participants learn more about Proposition A, challenge our transit panelists and receive a challenge in turn to turn out, phone bank, organize , and fight for Proposition A

Thanks to everyone who braved the cold, mixed precipitation, and threats of snow to attend City Affair XIII at the offices of Arcturis. The discussion was often boisterous with panelists Tom Shrout, Courtney Sloger, and Mark Phillips outlining the future plans of Metro, discussing strategy for victory for the upcoming vote on Proposition A this April, and being kept on their toes by a lively discussion section.

City Affair STL would like to pass on the following resources to transit advocacy interested citizens:

Newly Redesigned Metro Website - Now featuring Google Transit for trip planning purposes and soon rolling out a smart phone application
