8664 Update - Exciting news and URGENT request.

(Verbatim, from Tyler Allen and JC Stites at ... and this just might be the first time in three years that NAC and Freedom of Speech are in agreement, even if I'm uncertain why Prof. Erika has chosen to insert the word "greenway." All in all, I'm not sure whether to applaud or crane my neck toward the grassy knoll)


Dear Supporter,

We need your help in one of two ways.

Today we confirmed that we will be presenting to the House Budget Review Subcommittee on Transportation this Monday, February 4th. The meeting will be at 2pm in room 131 of the Capitol Annex. All the details are below. This is our one chance to impact this project at the state level. We would like to have a strong show of support, so please spread the word.

If you can't attend our presentation on Monday, PLEASE show your support right now by calling:

800-372-7181 (legislative hotline)

Provide your name, address, and phone number.

"My message is for the House BR SUB on Transportation."

"I want to save $2 Billion and I support 86-64."

As they say, operators are standing by. Please, make the call right now. There has never been a more critical time to impact this project.

Thanks for your time and support.


Tyler Allen and JC Stites

PS We don't have lobbyists or high-priced attorneys, we are relying on the grassroots support and common sense of this community. Thank you for helping us make our case.

at least it's not "greenAway"

If they got rid of 64 through downtown, wouldn't their directions to Lexington be wrong?

Jeff Gillenwater said...

Not necessarily, but anyone going to Lexington for a meeting at the capitol would be lost anyway.
