It’s fitting that the premier broadcast of Gridlock: Public Transit in SE Wisconsin will be happening this Thursday July 2nd at 6 PM on Milwaukee Public TV. Gov. Doyle just ensured that it will continue a while longer, even as the Milwaukee area loses jobs due to our poor transit infrastructure.
According to a press release, “Gridlock will give you an intimate look at our transit dilemma and accomplishments–and a snapshot of what is happening in some other cities. Many local leaders and grassroots advocates are featured in this documentary!”
Also quite fitting is the special party happening at at 5:30 PM on July 2nd down at Transfer Pizzeria Café for the premier of Gridlock. Kerry of Transit NOW (not a CNI rag) asks that you RSVP with her by Thursday July 2 at noon if you plan to attend. (kthomas [#atmark#] transitnow.org is her e-mail) I’ll try to be there. I would be there, but I already have plans for that day. Alas! Have a Bismark pizza for me, okay?
