Transcript 14 Montrose Voice/ June 24,1983 Commentary Let's Hear It For the People By Hollis Hood The recent defeat of MTA's bond referendum said much for a thinking public in Houston. It wasn't only Montrose that defeated the proposal 2 to 1, it was nearly citywide. It's odd, however, that a major concern such as the Committee for Bus and Rail with it's budget in excess of $100,000 and radio and TV spots couldn't fair better against a fledgling organization throw together in days with a budget of not even $14,000. Just goes to show you that you can fool some of the people some of the time ... but not all of the people all of the time. This paper editorialized against the rail for reasons too numerous to mention now, but it could not have done so without the assistance and knowledgable input from concerned citizens. A special thanks to Barry Klein of the Neartown Transportation Committee and chairman ofthe Citizens for Responsible Transit, and Mary Jane Smith who organized a grassroots effort to defeat the proposal. The only way to defeat a well-organized and well run campaign such as Metro waged to get the bond effort through (and despite what they may think, it was a very professional campaign), it takes countless hours of volunteer effort and dedication above and beyond. There are a few people who put in that extra effort and I wish we could name them all. Metro has gone back to square one, back to.the people for ideas. Monty Levine of Advanced Monorail Systems, Inc. has gone back to city council with a proposal to build one mile of monorail track to demonstrate how it can be used in mass transit and how cheaply it can be built. There is even the possibility of a monorail between Galveston and Houston with stops on the NOTICE To offer his GAY clients the personalized service they deserve BRUCE WOOLLEY has left TravelTech.

Metro is going to have to rethink it's attitudes. Houstonians are known for their cynicism, something like 46 per cent of them say they don't respect anybody. How could Metro have thought they would put anything over or inhibit these people into thinking there was only one solution to a problem. No way. Yes, everybody wants something done about traffic. Now maybe MTA will get it's head straight—stop wasting money overpaying a few engineers and consultants and get down to what's pragmatic to solve the problem this year—not ten years from now.
