@kwellscomm “Access Indy with Kim Wells”
As voters head to the early voting poll on this last day of early voting Monday or when the polls open Tuesday on Election Day, one of the issues that they’ll have to address on their ballot is the Marion County Transit Plan Referendum. One organization is in full support of the referendum because of improved transportation’s impact on senior citizens and others in this community. They are the AARP. Mandla Moyo, Community Engagement Director of the AARP, which represents the interests of Americans over the age of 50 in this nation, joined WTLC News’ Kim Wells, who also hosts “Access Indy with Kim Wells” at the Julia Carson Transit Center in downtown Indianapolis (across from the early voting polls) to discuss his organization’s perspective on public transportation here in Indy.
Click on the Media Player below to listen to the conversation and learn more about this important referendum on the ballot that you, the voter, will decide either “yes” or “no” for the county to impose an economic development tax to pay for improving or establishing public transpo through IndyGo.
Early voting ends at Noon (Eastern) on Monday at the Marion County Clerk’s office downtown on the first floor of the City-County Building at Washington and Delaware Streets.
What To Look For On Your Ballot:
The Marion County Transit plan referendum question will read like this on your ballot…
City-County Council Special Ordinance #1, 2016: Referendum for Transit Funding
Shall Marion County have the ability to impose a county economic development income tax rate, not to exceed a rate of 0.25%, to pay for improving or establishing public transportation service in the county through a public transportation project that will create a connected network of buses and rapid transit lines; increase service frequency; extend operational hours; and implement three new rapid transit lines?
