Everyone knows a lane for one bus every 10 minutes (3 miles) is a waste of space). Unfortunately, new Councilmembers Rosenberg and Showalter double-crossed voters and were joined by a long-term councilmember (Kasperzak) who first said about the bus lanes "I don't really know what I want."

Kasperzak has announced that he intends to run for State Assembly!
