EVEN if the San Gabriel Valley was like the fictional town of Who-ville and indeed, everyone from young to old spoke in unison and as loud as they could, it might not be enough to get the foothill extension of ...

Everyone who lives here understands that our transportation infrastructure is inadequate in the San Gabriel Valley and throughout Southern California. However, our state politicians siphon off hundreds of millions of dollars from gasline taxes for non-transportation state spending every year. Yes, the Gold Line extension should be a funded priority in MTA's Long Range Transportation Plan so that our local money can be leveraged to get a federal grant ASAP. The local communities support this Light Rail project because it will provide a fast alternative to the 210 freeway for many workers and students. Its construction cost will be relatively cheap compared to the cost of wasted time millions of commuters spend in traffic every year.

Oooh, you folks in the SGV ponied up $11 million??? Yawn...

$11 million is NOTHING, people. That's approximately 1% of the budget of the whole project. The MTA spends that much on fruit salad in their cafeteria every year.(Check it out, by the way, good sandwiches there).

The point is, you guys want the thing built, you get together some REAL money, let's say 25% of the whole budget. Then the MTA will see that you all are SERIOUS about getting the thing built. There's 14 municipalities along the line, so 200 million divided 14 ways goes down a little bit easier. If you need to, sell some municipal bonds for the project or something. I'm sure you folks can scrape together the cash from somewhere.

It's time to put your money where your mouths are.

Agreed. And I am so sick of the parochial whining from the grandstanding SGV politicos.

East LA County already has Metrolink, the San Gabriel Busway and more freeways than the SF Valley or Westside.

East LA County is also getting the well-deserved Gold Line to East LA.

East LA COunty does not have to population that the Wilshire Corridor or other Westside projects have.

Stop whining. The Gold Line extension is a good idea, but it is to any rational evaluator a lower priority than the projects it ranks behind.

Just like Mubarak's thugs someone in Glendora California is trying to shut down this forum.

Over loading the comments section with haggled topics, against those who have something to say about Glendora's up coming municipal election of March 08, 2011 concerning each candidate.

Who would do something like this, have they done it in the past? Have they tampered with past election ballots? Was there someone on the inside of city hall to change the out come of an election, by being inside to alter or change mail-in-ballots or make them just go away?

Mail-in-ballots are handled by city hall personel and gathered up an sorted inside city hall, with no one watching. Misplacing mail-in-ballots or altering them, while no one is watching, at night.

Why is it that certain city hall personel have access and are working late at night, over the weekends during mail-in-ballots are being gathered from the US Post Office?

Could someone be filling in the 'correct' bubble for a special person, to win, then signing their name?

Who by the way validate the signature. Mail-in-ballots can also miss the mail in dead-line and can not be counted for the election in question, funny how that happens?

It's worked so well in the past, because their are people in power with in the walls of city hall that will cover up and down right lie.

This whole operation that takes place inside Glendora city hall is a well oiled political machine. Mail-in-ballots are also filled out at private meetings, social gatherings etc.. Done so the 'true order' is kept in place?

The 'true order' is starting to show some wear and tear, not being able to come up with the 'fool proof' answers to hard questions being put fourth.

Those members of the 'true order' has seen for themselves, their so called leaders have lied to them, and more than once.

In short, the 'true order' has created false leaders, who can't pass a simple poly-graph exam, if their life depended on it.
