FASTER Bay Area is proposing a 9-county, 40-year, $100 billion sales tax purportedly intended for transit improvements. 

Will this tax really ease traffic congestion?

Our guest speaker, Tom Rubin, will explain how, without major changes in how transportation is planned and executed in the Bay Area, all that the passage of this tax would accomplish would be to feed more of our money to agencies who have wasted billions of dollars while transit ridership has drastically decreased and the roads have gotten even more congested and unpredictable.

Please join us the evening of Monday, Feb. 3 for dinner, mingling with fellow taxpayers, and to hear important information about this latest, gigantic, proposed tax on the already overburdened residents of nine bay area counties.
