Forward thinking on the Red Line [Letter]

July 28, 2014

As a city homeowner and transit user, I am extremely pleased to see that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is fighting to secure the Red Line ("Mayor reaffirms city's support for Red Line," July 24).

If Baltimore is to be competitive in the years ahead, it needs a greatly improved transit network, particularly at a time when so many Americans are choosing to invest in walkable urban communities with strong public transportation options.

The Red Line is as integral to attracting 10,000 new families as part of the mayor's continuing efforts to reduce property taxes and improve the overall fiscal health of the city, as evidenced by our recently improved bond rating.

Keep up the forward-thinking work, Madam Mayor. You have my vote.

Grant Corley, Baltimore
