League of Women Voters April 7th Transit Millage Debate

For those of you who missed it, the video of the League of Women Voters' Transit Millage Debate at the AADL has been processed and uploaded to the Library's website. I have not had a chance to watch the video in its entirety, so why don't we watch it together? Please share your thoughts in the comments below. Also, here's the wording of the millage proposal from the Washtenaw County Clerk's website:

To improve public bus, van, and paratransit services—including expanded service hours, routes, destinations, and services for seniors and people who have disabilities—shall the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority levy a new annual tax of 0.7 mills ($0.70 per $1000 of taxable value) on all taxable property within the City of Ann Arbor, the City of Ypsilanti, and the Charter Township of Ypsilanti for the years 2014-2018 inclusive? The estimate of revenue if this millage is approved is $ 4,368,847.00 for 2014. This revenue will be disbursed to the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority and, as required by law, a portion may be subject to capture by the downtown development authorities of the Cities of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, the Washtenaw County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority, and the local development finance authority of the Charter Township of Ypsilanti.
