One Response to Sunny Isles Seeks New Public Works Director

  1. Kevin says:

    Hey! I know a lot of focus on TM recently has been on ways to improve the Rickenbacker (and rightfully so), however, as the FTA has recently released their FY 2011 budget, a post on how these new figures affect the Metro’s Orange line expansions, or any future Metro expansions, could be really insightful. It’s just a thought. Regardless, thanks for everything you guys do on the blog, it’s great!
