So SRTA doesn't want to attend the town hall... WRONG! The implied story would be that they have tried this once and had ill results so they don't want to do it again. However if you consider this from a tactical and logical approach the goal of SRTA is to keep people away from the meeting. By announcing they will not attend, they believe fewer people will come dissappointed in their failures. Then at the last minute they will send a representative, and claim that the meeting was a failure because they came and no one was there to hear their side. If we want to get our point across that we want this to end, our constant presence and questioning will have to begin Thursday the 17th and continue until the HOT lanes are gone. Come early and bring friends.
