Yeah, lets spend hundreds of millions on street level light rail, while Metro implodes. If its based on sales tax, then its going to suffer the way of the bus during a recession, if its based on excise tax, then its going to get voted down. Anything that requires 200-300 million will probably require a public vote, last attempt was rejected by 56% and that had a third of the money going to road maintenance.

They have only themselves to blame, from airing art or indie flicks that only appeal to a small demographic, to re-runs of classic movies that people have already seen, plus the refusal to upgrade to digital projection make this a dead years ago.
Film is a 100 years old now, still the fire hazard it always was and degrades over time into chemical toxic soup. Digital projection has so many advantages that its no wonder why its killing traditional film theaters the way the internet is killing of paper newspapers and magazines. It would be hard to make this a indie theater given how theres already half a dozen of them within 4 blocks of that location.

So instead of giving cities the right to raise car tabs to whatever they want, without a public vote. He gave us the right to raise the sales tax, but only if it passed a public vote. Goldy, what country do you live in, in which a public vote is consider obscene?
Metro needs to tighten the belt and figure things out, because we gave them 20$ extra a few years back and now that it expired, they still need that 20$. This means they did nothing to further to cut costs, their only option on the table appears to be cutting service. As a life time bus user, who does not own a car, I can tell you there are indeed some things they can cut.
