"I'm really sad to do this ... it's kind of tragic that we're faced with cutting service instead of expanding it," said Marin County Supervisor Charles McGlashan. Now that is a sentance that the Marin IJ will be able to cut and paste many times in the future. So-called-SMART Train 2014 - "I'm really sad to do this ... it's kind of tragic that we're faced with cutting service instead of expanding it," said Marin County Supervisor Charles McGlashan. Marin Energy Authority - 2013 - "I'm really sad to do this ... it's kind of tragic that we're faced with cutting service instead of expanding it," said Marin County Supervisor Charles McGlashan. Marin General Hospital - 2012 - "I'm really sad to do this ... it's kind of tragic that we're faced with cutting service instead of expanding it," said Marin County Supervisor Charles McGlashan. The only thing that McGlashan will greatly expand for Marin taxpayers is their taxes and financial liability!

Once again, Marin County taxpayers suffer...paying over the top, union bureaucratically heavy LIFE TIME PENSIONS and higher than private sector salaries...for what??? Less service, painful cuts and a system wholely dedicated to senior UNION jobs verses servicing the public. Pay the employees less...cut their pay.....a lesser paying job for all is better than keeping a few "tenured" senior managersat life time pensions worth millions. Its not that our Supervisors and Board don't have enough budget...they are simply overpaying for EVERYTHING....they call this leadership? The unions did this to us and our elected officials looked the other way. Care to tell what portion of your "current budget" is going to pay for retired drivers on pensions, retired cadillac medical benefits and interest on the unfunded pensions you allowed?

Public transportation comes and goes with the ebb and flow of the economy, and that is why driving my car is the most dependable means of transportation in the Bay Area. For years eco-freaks have tried to sell the public on supporting over-priced iffy public transport.

I can't understand why that Marin the ricest county. In the Bay Area,CA US and maybe the world has to cut bus service. I used to play in the College of Marin Day Band. When they cut bus service in 2006 I had to quit. Because I didn't want to get to work at night after a rehearsal. Rehearsals are at 11am. So I decided to quit the band to work in the daytime.
