I Will Write Anna Eshoo Today

Time is running out if you want to tell your congressperson to fight to get transit operating funds (present in original draft, since dropped in the usual wheeling and dealing) back into the economic stimulus package.

If you have forgotten who represents you, go to http://www.house.gov and type in your zipcode (you may need your +4 extension, but if so but they link to a USPS page that will look that up for you based on your street address.

Done!

It was a good letter, and I was going to post it here, but I hit submit without copying it and can't get it back.

I hope the Poli-Sci (or whatever) student intern that goes through Rep Eshoo's email enjoys reading it!

Sending stuff to Pelosi feels like it is going to a black hole. I almost feel like SF is less served because we have the House Speaker.

So I think I will just send something to Jackie Speier and Lynn Woolsey instead.

Oh man, I wish you could've posted your letter! I just left a brief message in a phone call.

In case you missed the news: DeFavio's amendment didn't pass muster, but there's another chance with Rep Nadler who's working to add transit funding into another amendment sponsored by David Obey that has a good chance of getting in. The downside: It doesn't provide specific operational funding.

I passed the info along to a few Caltrain conductors and they were all *very* interested in this information and promised to pass it along to their union reps.
