Steve Kinsey, Marin County Supervisor District 4 and MTC (Metropolitan Transportation Commission Commissioner) is one of the most influential politician in the Bay Area. This is his testimony at the "Regional Transportation Summit" organized by Jared Huffman on June 30, 2014.
he is proposing a massive increase in local taxation to build his Smart Growth Cities, the SMART train, Freight Service, Bus Corridors, Bike Bridgeway on the Richmond Bridge and new bikeways. Listen closely for all of the new taxes he proposes on your right to travel, shop tax free on the internet and choose the communities where you want to live. He is for the massive urbanization of the entire 101 corridor right up through Mendocino County.
In fact he wants a new "Redwood Empire" which I suppose he will appoint himself "King". His ambition appears to have no end. Gosh, I guess he needs the money more than you need it for retirement, housing, sending your kids to school and enjoying life. We must Save Marin and we must Save California from the reckless ambitions of politicians and bureaucrats.
