“Traffic jams, lack of light rail or other mass transit options, ongoing housing development, street repairs, etc., are all issues that were discussed in the recent city election,” says Madhu Sridhar, president of the League of Women Voters of the San Antonio Area. “The political gridlock this issue has been trapped in for years has consequences for our economy, health, environment and quality of life.”
