Don't let Joanne stand alone

Don’t let Joanne Counelis stand alone fighting to expand SunRail service to weekends and late-night hours.

The SunRail Technical Advisory Committee is meeting 1:30 p.m. this Wednesday, at the Florida Highway Patrol station 133 S. Semoran Blvd., in east Orlando.

Usually Joanne is the only person who stands up at the meetings to call for more service. Joanne says what so many of us think. We need to get Joanne’s back on this.

Unfortunately, we just got official notification of the meeting on Sunday afternoon. As many of you probably know, Semoran Boulevard is 5 miles across town from the closest SunRail station. Surely FDOT/SunRail isn’t trying to discourage public attendance or comment. Or is it?

Under Florida state law these meetings are open to the public. There is a period at the end of the meeting when each member of the public is allowed to speak. More of us need to stand up with Joanne and fight for the SunRail service that we need and deserve.
