" anyone who contributes more to the City than they consume."
Hmm...what does that mean? Someone who drives to their job down 101 and
does all their shopping at the strip malls along the way home, then
enters their home through the garage? I guess that means they
contribute property taxes, but don't consume anything at shops in the
City or take up space on Muni.
I think a Livable City Summit is a great idea.
I loved when the guy from SF SOS said on the radio show about possible
congestion charging in SF that families don't take Muni - it's
ridiculous to expect families to ride Muni. Caller Andrew Sullivan from
Rescue Muni asked him what Muni lines he rode "because I see families on
the bus all the time."
I love riding the bus. You see the most interesting people, and
sometimes get to talk to them.

righteousness and self-interest is very powerful.
How can we use that in a similar conference: "every good-government and
children's safety organization...every transportation professional and
'best practices' guru...is awaiting you at the "Livable City Summit."
The Summit is about transportation, but it's much more than that. As
safe and efficient and affordable transportation goes, so goes the
ability of families with children, our environment, the very core of our
