“There are no politicians here and that disappoints me. The mayor should be here and the whole damn council. Political leadership is essential. You need champions who push and make a lot of noise.”

We need better politicians? Sounds to me like the musings of a compulsive gambler who believes all their problems will be solved when they find the "right" slot machine. These problems speak directly to the failures of these governing institutions - and a simple personnel change isn't going to fix them.

The real champions of transit have been working for years to connect with everyone from Council to the Chamber of Commerce and radical transportation activists, providing mountains of data and keeping the image in the public eye.

We should start a chart of how many articles the Spec can write about walkability and transit issues without ever mentioning RTH or any of the people/groups who've been working on these issues for years.
