In case you haven’t seen it, the Center for Neighborhood Technology and Active Trans launched a new campaign to get an LA-style dedicated Cook County-level revenue stream for public transit today.

Not a lot of details yet as to the form of the campaign or proposed revenue mechanisms, but it should be on your radar. Maybe let your county commissioner know you support it.
