City Visions Election Coverage: Should Californians Repeal the Gas Tax Increase?
BAY AREA – Hear Silicon Valley Leadership Group President and CEO Carl Guardino on tonight’s KALW 91.7 City Visions, as they continue their special coverage of the upcoming election by focusing on Prop 6 on the November ballot. Prop. 6 would eliminate more than $5 billion annually in existing transportation funds and stops funding for more than 6,500 bridge and road safety, transportation and public transit improvement projects currently underway in communities throughout California. If Prop 6 passes, projects intended to fix our crumbling roads and aging bridges could come to a halt.
During tonight’s broadcast Guardino, Harmeet Dhillon, a trial attorney in San Francisco and a Republican National Committee Member, and Martin Wachs, a distinguished Professor Emeritus of Civil and Environmental Engineering and City and Regional Planning at UC Berkeley will discuss who’s for it, who’s against it, and why, as well as the potential consequences of your vote.
