Iorio: It’s Train Time For Tampa – A summary

This post will begin a series in my blog dealing with the lack of rail in Tampa Bay. As some of you might already know, Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio has been pushing a 1 cent sales tax to fund the project and hopes to get it to a public vote by 2010. But there’s tons of opposition at this point, so you can expect this will have an uphill battle.

Here’s a link to a Bay News 9 story that I previously had posted.

What do you think should be done to get light rail to Tampa? Should the city/county try to push a special tax to fund the rail system? Vote now in my latest poll, then post a comment about whether a tax should be implemented and if so, what kind of tax? Gas tax? Sales tax?

Please let me know what you think!
