STORY HERE!

TRIMET BOARD MEMBER TIFFANY SWIETZER RUNNING ILLEGAL PARKING LOT

The TRIBUNE has published a story which implicates one of our BOARD MEMBERS in the operation of an illegal parking lot.


What's wrong with Tiffany Sweitzer?
 For the last four meetings she has left the meetings as soon as the public testimony begins. We are sure she is a very busy woman, but never hanging around to hear the public comments shows a complete lack of empathy for the transit riding population. If she feels she is too busy to actually attend the meetings to the end then maybe she should resign or be replaced.

Permits I'm not sure it's known why it wasn't pursued back in 2008. There's some other complaints for overgrowth and weeds, too. Overall, I think the real problem may be that properties with no buildings on them get charged at a low rate. This means that owners can be discouraged from building, and that the carrying cost is low. Specifically, taxes on the lot are only about $12,000. Even if that is for only a quarter of the block, it just requires 10 cars @ $100 a month (which is what I think the rate was) to pay for them. http://www.portlandmaps.com/detail.cfm?propertyid=R541382&action=Assessor

Ross Wrede said... TriMet's List of Priorities 1) Create corporate welfare for construction companies, real estate developers, and multinational transit companies. 2) Build rail lines where no one wants to go. 3) Create a bloated multi-layered administrative staff at inflated six figure salaries. 1001) Provide bus service with old, dirty, unreliable equipment for those poor slobs that aren't lucky enough to be near rail service.

What did I do to deserve the historic (old) plastic seats on the bus today? What did I ever do to you, #TriMet?

Should we have camera's with audio pointed at us?

There is a discussion going on at a Facebook group regarding audio/visual recording of operators. I for one SUPPORT the use of audio/video in our buses. I did it voluntarily for about a year before the country got hysterical about things like that. It will be much more useful to us than harmful against us. As long as operators have access to files and the rules are clearly defined then I support audio/video on operators.
