U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx Addresses COMTO
U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx is living proof that public transit can transform lives.
As a child born to a 19-year-old single mother in Charlotte, North Carolina, Foxx remembers growing up in his grandparents’ home surrounded by fences. The fences were not metaphorical like the ones in August Wilson’s Tony award-winning play. They were literally chain links that boxed in his community on one side from Interstate 85, and on an adjacent side from Interstate 77. City planners made certain that vehicles could travel swiftly to and from their destinations, but for the people in Foxx’s neighborhood, not so much.
Even today, many communities throughout America like Foxx’s continue to be boxed in, blocking low-income residents from the middle class that access to education, jobs and other opportunities typically provide.
That’s why it is critical that transportation leaders and consumers urge Congress to support a $478 billion transportation funding bill that Secretary Foxx and President Obama are proposing, Foxx told a rapt audience at COMTO’s Opening Plenary Session during its 44th National Meeting and Training Conference in Boston this week.
