Transit issues top Colorado mayors’ priorities for Obama
Everybody wants the ear of President-elect Barack Obama, and the nation’s city officials are no different.
MSNBC.com today posted a survey of 225 mayors and a nifty interactive map of their calls for relief from the tanking national economy, crumbling infrastructure, unfunded mandates, fossil-fuel based energy and spiraling costs of two wars. Not surprisingly, Colorado mayors from Cañon City, Thornton, Denver, Grand Junction, Vail and Westminster are most concerned about transportation issues.
Inexplicably, some Colorado communities whose leaders did add their suggestions are not listed on the map. However, you can read all of the responses at The nation’s mayors send their ideas for Obama.
