Thanks Sila and John; you couldn't have made this easier, and I urge
everyone to take advantage of your work and pitch in with their own effort.

Subject: [tabi] Starmetro budget concerns

Good evening Everyone,

City of Tallahassee budget discussions and negotiations are underway. As
always, reductions to Starmetro (both fixed route and Dial-A-Ride) are being
considered. Please make your voice heard by urging your City Commissioners
to not support these reductions. Below is an outline/template that may be
used to email City Commissioners, compliments of John Plescow. Email City
Commissioners at <mailto:commissioners@xxxxxxxxxx> commissioners@xxxxxxxxxx

Time is of grave importance so I urge you to draft and send your email

Thanks for helping to make a difference and protecting funding for public


Draft letter:

Dear Commissioners:

I am writing regarding the city's budget. I would not support any cuts to
StarMetro. Both the fixed route system and Dial A Ride are critical to the
citizens that need to use the services. Any cuts to public transit will
damage the local economy, because transit is economic development. We cannot
make money, if we cannot get to our jobs. We cannot spend our money buying
goods and services in Tallahassee, if we cannot get to the providers of
those goods and services.

Thank you for your support of public transit.
