Our good friend Pat Herrity is back singing some of his greatest hits.
He is once again trying to end the bicycle coordinator position.
I think there are still areas that we can become more efficient," Herrity said. For example, he said the county should eliminate what he called "political statement positions," such as the bicycle coordinator.
If Charlie Strunk had known that he was just performing a political statement, he could have just stayed at home every day. Why was he wasting his time doing actually work?
we were able to get some changes in the plans before they even went to public hearing. Some of these changes include decreasing the width of the multi-purpose trail proposed for the west side from 10 feet to 8 feet, reducing the design speed from 45 to 40 (with a posted speed of 35 mph), and eliminating the striped on lane bicycle paths and using wide shoulder lanes.
Maybe Herrity is just trying to tack right after losing the primary for a House seat last spring to an outsider. I expect him to run again in 2012 since he's reportedly bored with being a Supervisor. That way he can make a real politcal statement.
