Credit where credit is due

David Alpert is right; Vincent Gray’s proposed budget is generally good for transportation. It’s especially good for streetcars, which was a topic of concern after how Gray handled last year’s budget. The Mayor proposes spending nearly a hundred million dollars over the next several years on the streetcar system, which isn’t enough to build the entire 37 mile system right away, but is nonetheless a very substantial investment.

Gray has had a difficult transition, but his proposed transportation budget is a good one. My comfort level with him is up a few important notches.
