The following candidates support the current streetcar proposal: Jeff Berding, Chris Bortz, Laketa Cole, David Crowley, John Eby, Pat Fischer, Leslie Ghiz, Greg Harris, Joan Kaup, Chris Monzel, Mitch Painter, Roxanne Qualls, Cecil Thomas, George Zamary.
If you take out the Republicans and the ones I know nothing about the resultant list is: Bortz, Cole, Crowley, Harris, Kaup, Qualls, Thomas.
To me the Streetcar is a good litmus test as to whether a member believes in transforming and growing this city. I have been following the development of the streetcar proposal for about two years, and support the current plan. Many members, such as Cranley, give alternative transportation good lip service, but when the steel hits the rails, he will stall and quibble on details resulting in the status-quo: cars and buses as the only method of transport in the city.
