A delegation of members from Congress were in Vancouver, WA on Monday for a ‘listening session’ to hear what’s on the minds of Washington residents as Congress begins drafting the next big multi-year transportation spending bill.
SRTC’s Transportation Manager, Glenn Miles, was at that meeting with other representatives from Spokane, including from Spokane Transit, the Good Roads Association, Spokane Valley City Councilmember and SRTC Board Chair Gary Schimmels and County Commissioner Todd Mielke.
Glenn said there was so much response to the meeting that not everyone could fit in the room designated for it. There were also protesters there, both for and against the Columbia Crossing bridge.
Glenn went into a lot of detail of what was said at the meeting, but The Columbian newspaper posted live updates throughout the hearing, saving me from having to transcribe Glenn’s debrief.
