Letter: Light rail expands community



I attended my first C-Tran Board of Directors meeting this month and didn’t stay long. I was surprised at how negative many of the speakers were.

I realize that many people are against the Columbia River Crossing but they still should be able to express themselves without insulting the board members.

In spite of the negative comments, I want the members of the C-Tran board to know that some of us living in Clark County support the CRC and want light rail extended to Vancouver.

We want Vancouver connected to Portland by a variety of transportation modes and not be an island unto itself.

I’m certainly glad I’m not on the C-Tran board where I would have to put up with such vitriol.
