Alexandria Pork Requests from Conference of Mayors

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kristina @ 11:36 am

The United States Conference of Mayors sent this porky wish list to the Hill last week. They’re calling it “America’s Mayors Report to the Nation on Projects to Strengthen Metro Economies and Create Jobs Now.”

Alexandria was on the list.

The City wants $2,400,000 to purchase  four hybrid vehicle converted trolleys and initiate City‐run trolley service to replace existing contractor service. Trolley available as a free service 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily in Alexandria historic Old Town district.

How exactly will replacing an existing trolley service (which overlaps with the DASH bus service) with new trolleys help to stimulus economic growth?

  1. I can’t figure out how it will stimulate the economy, but I’ve got an idea–let’s hire an ethicist and ask? I hear the City already has one on retainer for $9,000 a year.
