Despite the Mercury’s attempts to start a fight between us I plan to enter this event with a cooperative spirit. There are challenges in creating a safe, balanced and efficient transportation network and the solution must include the needs of all users. We have a big job ahead of us, and antipathy between user groups is just another barrier to reaching our goals.
I look forward to meeting Zucker and Sarkar and I hope to learn more about their perspectives.
You’re invited to join us for dialogue and drinks. Here are the event details:
Tuesday, 7/31 @ 7:00pm
Rontoms (SE 6th and Burnside)
Gravatars make better comments... Get yours here.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with class and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.
Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
