Government and Elected Officials
“With this letter I would like to reiterate, for the purposes of the 2014 Business Plan comment period, my support for the Authority’s review of a tunnel oriented alternative between the Palmdale Transportation Center (PTC) and the San Fernando Valley Burbank/Bob Hope Airport station option.”
“I first wrote to encourage the Authority to take a look at this potentially more direct, faster, less costly, and less community intrusive route in October of 2013, due to the overall positive impact such an alternative could have on my district and its constituents.”
