As you look all around DC and the surrounding jurisdictions, apartments, homes and offices are being built faster than people can move in them, yet you support a plan that only wants to bring less to the table. We have communities and business THRIVING in places that used to look like farms and prairies because of WMATA. Taking Metro backward by shortening hours, cutting service and raising fares, as you are about to do next week, is nothing more than an endorsement of a plan to destroy Metro and make it inconvenient to those who need it the most.
By supporting Weidefeld’s plans you are literally locking out poor and working class people who need Metro to have access to school, work and training. Endorsing this plan puts the death of people’s ability to move upward economically on your hands. You have become directly responsible for the death of upward mobility in DC Metro and have the blood on your hands!
