From the November Meeting Minutes of the Regional TransportationCommission

David McDevitt of Vancouver said he strongly advocates between Oregon and Washington a joint powers authority. He said he supports the efforts of Mr. Barnes and Mr. Schaefer, saying
we need the labor and jobs here, but we also need to consider the fact that our transportation needs are significantly greater than just the I-5 Bridge. He said rebuilding the bridge will only put the funnel further south into Oregon; the issue is the number of vehicles on the road. Mr. McDevitt said they need to consider solutions that can encourage people to leave their vehicles in Clark County and consider some of the needs in Oregon particularly in Troutdale and Gresham. He suggested looking at a mass rapid transit solution that is not encumbered by vehicles in front of them or by cross roads. These solutions could be extended further north up the I-5 corridor perhaps to Olympia and something circular to benefit Oregon going through Gresham and Troutdale to get traffic off I-84 as well. Mr. McDevitt encouraged this direction and to keep the conversation open.

Breaking News!

Hi all!

Sally and I have breaking news! David has filed to run for US House of Representatives / US Congress in 2018. After this last election cycle and it’s devastating results, we are compelled to start NOW!!!!

We are immediately beginning the fundraising effort and are asking that you consider contributing $10 (or more) per month through November 2018. It’s equivalent to a couple of latte’s per month, so manageable.

Will you help?
