When I moved here in 2007, one of the essential elements that I’d checked out ahead of time is the presence of public transportation since I am a stroke survivor without a car. I’ve used the Blue Bus and the HandiVan gratefully ever since and never realized they might be in jeopardy until I read Rosemary Romero’s piece about re-authorizing funding for them.
Her marvelous article, summarizing the many benefits that the Blue Bus provides to Taoseños, makes it abundantly clear that we have to vote to re-authorize funding. This one issue alone is worthy to propel us to the polls on November 6. I, for one, wouldn’t be able to continue to make my home in Taos without the Blue Bus. It is truly my lifeline. Sincerely,
