Had a real zinger when I presented the annual Mayor’s Awards this week. You can read about it by clicking here.
I feel bad for Doug who has clearly been impacted by the changes to our transit system. I have asked our staff to follow up with him because I am confident there are options for him including our Mobility Service.
I also feel bad for our Transit staff to hear this criticism in this way. They have put enormous effort into building a more effective and inclusive system for riders as a whole and they have been dedicated to assisting our riders with the transition. We know change is not easy and when you have 25,000 riders a day, any change, regardless of how beneficial, will impact someone, in some way.
What I don’t feel bad about it selecting Doug for a Mayor’s Award. He really deserves it.
I like to recognize volunteers that work quietly in the background making a difference in our community. Just because they don’t seek the spotlight doesn’t mean they don’t have strong opinions!
