Ouch!! -- Some strong words by the House Minority Leader on recent DOT election.
House Democratic Leader DuBose Porter said this of the board's decision [of Gena Abraham as DOT Commissioner]:
"This was a rare chance to move transportation forward in Georgia. We know that Vance Smith was open to looking at mass transit and a multi-modal center in Atlanta, and seven of the 13 member decided to maintain the status quo, which is not good enough for a growing Georgia. Now, like in healthcare and education, transportation suffers and the state goes further backwards."
