No on Measure C

Stephen Sacks (letter Oct. 11) urged a "no" vote on Measure C. The discourse and arguments by Mr. Sacks are very cogent. One additional point: This important ballot measure locks in funding and thinking about transportation issues for the next 20 years.

Adding light rail transportation to Fresno County may be a dream, however, we cannot afford to delay thinking about it for 20 additional years as the population of the county mushrooms. If only we could model our transportation planning based on the forward thinking of Portland, Oregon. Vote "no" on Measure C.
