Seminole councilís opposition to Greenlight disheartening

Editor:
As a Seminole resident, I am very disappointed that our City Council failed to endorse the Greenlight Pinellas transit improvement plan.

Through a modest and fair tax switch, the Greenlight Pinellas plan would more than double the current transit service in our city, a need highlighted by the Vice Mayor when he pointed out how current routes, which only run once an hour, donít attract new riders.

Greenlight Pinellas, however, could be the solution by significantly increasing the frequency of buses in Seminole (along with other parts of the county) and running bus service at night to support second shift workers.

On greenlightpinellas.com I read that if this funding switch isnít passed, PSTA will have to cut bus service by nearly a third. How is that going to make the city of Seminole better?

Watching Seminole City Council oppose Greenlight Pinellas based on a few negative emails and comments and without truly recognizing the benefits to Seminole residents of the improved transit plan was disheartening.

My family and I strongly urge the Seminole City Council to take another look and support the Greenlight Pinellas plan to move our county forward.
