Pantograph Blog officially backs Brian Moran for Dem Governor nomination in the June 09 primary. Moran has served the Commonwealth for 20+ years in Alexandria and I think he commands the best perspective on how Virginia should develop.
Specifically, Moran's transportation platform states that we can no longer build enough roads to solve congestion, as anyone from NoVa knows. "Brian knows that to compete in the 21st century economy, relieve congestion and protect our environment, Virginia must invest in high-speed rail and expand mass transit. He understands that we need forward-looking solutions to this transportation crisis."
Pantograph Blog firmly believes that the only way to solve Virginia's traffic crisis is a strong commitment to developing all levels of passenger rail: high speed rail, commuter rail like VRE, and intracity rail transit like the Norfolk Tide must be expanded. Brian Moran understands the urgency of developing transportation in Virginia.
