When it comes to transportation issues, it is important to understand and listen to the voices involved with the process. Here are a couple of video links that get that perspective.

(Note: This blogging software does not allow embedding video, so you will need to click on the link to see it.)

Marty Seifert: At a community meeting for Lynn Wardlow in Eagan, Seifert indicated some of his own displeasure with the I-35 Bridge bidding process... and sees a need for reform at MnDOT.
....see Video here.

Overall Transportation Problem: At that same forum, a lobbyist for Contractors gave a perfect overall synopsis of what we face in transportation. He gives a perfect example of how investment in transportation can stimulate economic growth.
.....see Video here.

Chris Gerlach: A Senator from Apple Valley who has been an opponent of transit and other investments, gives his general ideas on transportation....
.....see Video here.

Shelley Madore: A Democratic representative from Apple Valley goes to the emotions that followed the debate of the I-35 Bridge process. Also some of the emotion and frustration of some constituents at the lack of action is portrayed here.
....see Video here.

We will try to bring more of these voices to this blog in the future. This issue will weigh heavily on the legislature in 2008.
