Letter: AB 805 (Gonzales Fletcher) - Support

Yesterday, Circulate San Diego sent Governor Jerry Brown a letter to share our support for AB 805 to reform transportation entities in the San Diego region.

The structure of our metropolitan planning organization, SANDAG, as well as our two transit agencies, MTS and NCTD, need reform. All three entities distribute power disproportionally among smaller and less central jurisdictions, which is not consistent with the democratic principles of one person, one vote. 

For San Diego to move forward, and to achieve California's greenhouse gas goals, we need the structural reform called for by AB 805.
