Hello from Tallahassee. I was at the Capitol today, meeting with our state leaders in my role as Director of the South Florida Bike Coalition. I met with State Representative Julio Robaina, former mayor of South Miami and current member of the House Transportation Committee. We spoke about state-wide issues, of course, but I was most impressed with how attentive he was to our concerns related to the Sunset Drive project. I wrote him a quick email over lunch and within an hour, I received the following response – reminding us that reaching out to our representatives when we need them is important and, in this case, effective. I am eager to see what, if any, response we get now from FDOT. It strikes me that it is easier to get a meeting and even just an email reply from Tallahassee than it is from Miami.

Kathryn, I apologize for FDOT and them not responding to you. As you know, this project is in my district and its another one of my priorities. I will make sure that they all call you back. Let me know what happen and I will also advise the Mayor and Commissioners.
