|With regard to Transit for Miami, Mario Diaz Balart, The head of the Transportation Sub-Committee in Federal Government, is left twiddling those long thumbs.|
Why isn't he getting us some rail, some meaningful transit?
The frustrated bigwig in Transportation in the Federal Government, U.S. Rep Diaz Balart said of his good relationship with the incoming President leading to Miami Dade County getting some Federal transit funds:
“If they don’t have viable projects, it doesn’t matter,” Diaz-Balart said. “It wouldn’t matter if Mayor Gimenez was president.”
WHY DON'T WE HAVE VIABLE PROJECTS? WHY?
What is wrong with this picture?
They don't give the guy anything to work with. The county is focused on generating funds from electronic signs at bus stops when we need rail desperately. Where are the priorities? Why is the County dragging its feet presenting Mario with any viable projects? What the hell is Alice Bravo doing? What is the Mayor doing?
Transit sucks. I watch buses and trolleys pass me empty. Why? They don't go where the people want to go or their routes are so crazy ass it takes you all day to get anywhere. And the buses are in the same traffic as the rest of us. Buses suck.
So, when it comes to Miami Dade County, Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart is left twiddling his thumbs, doling out money to OTHER areas of the country.
