Today I spent some time at the Brentwood Metrolink Station. I was shocked by the large number of people who were both registered voters in St. Louis County and direct consumers of transit, but were unaware that Prop A is on the ballot. Luckily I had some great conversations with Metro riders and hopefully convinced a few extra people to make it out to the polls.

Due to my very positive experience today, I would like to encourage everyone who uses transit and is a proponent of Prop A, to start conversations about it. Transit users have great motivation to vote on April 6th, but they will not make it to the polls if they are unaware of what is going on. We need every vote we can get so take Metro to the County and start a conversation!
An excellent editorial and cartoon appeared in today’s Post-Dispatch (Sunday March 21st) on the subject of Prop A. I highly recommend giving this a read and spreading the word.
