Epic Power Struggle of the Planning Bureaucrats: ABAG vs. MTC

The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTC)  are now in a desperate death match to survive.   These are the agencies that brought us Plan Bay Area.  MTC is in charge of funding ABAG.  Suddenly, they have voted to only fund SIX MONTHES for their planning department.  The MTC wants to control all the housing development planning for the Bay Area which is controlled by ABAG.  The MTC cites efficiency as its reason..  Hmm. Zelda Brownstein has written a thorough account in 48 Hills  HERE

This is a tale of power, money and intrigue worthy of Shakespere.

Why is Steve Kinsey our only MTC representative?
What does he have to say about this?
