MRT.jpgLast week, South LA Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas was instrumental in passing LA Metro's Long Range Transportation Plan, a 30-year, $270 billion blueprint for transportation for all of LA County. While many questions still remain about the environmental and civil rights impact of the plan, Supervisor Ridley-Thomas will discuss his success in protecting funds for expansion of the bus system and what he calls "the biggest public infrastructure project in a generation" in historically under-served South LA.
