Streetcars update

At the recent streetcar display, Councilmember Tommy Wells and Kwame Brown who is the frontrunner in the campaign to tbe the Council Chair spoke passionately in support of putting the streetcars in place on H Street as soon as possible (pictures below).

Mayor Fenty has been a strong supporter of Streetcars on H Street and across the city and his DDOT Director Gabe Klein has made it a top priority and installed a senior aide to direct the project.

Now comes news via Tommy Wells and other prominent streetcar supporters that Councilmember Phil Mendelson is opposed to funding the streetcar project. Click HERE to contact DC Councilmembers to urge them to fully fund the streetcar project.

  1. Greater Greater Washington reports that Vincent Gray just yanked funding for the streetcar project last night.
    I've already sent Gray a message urging him to reconsider. Please post something urging your readers to do the same. We need to act quickly!
