Public transit says “thanks” to Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon


Public transit says “thanks” to Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon

Friends of Transit, a nonprofit group that educates Greater Phoenix on the value of mass transit, will host an event to thank outgoing Phoenix mayor, Phil Gordon, for his dedication and passion for transit in the Valley. During his tenure, transit services have expanded to more of the Valley, including the addition of 20 miles of light rail. He appreciates and has tirelessly promoted the connection between effective transportation solutions and quality of life for his residents.

The Mayor will be presented with a few surprises to show the community’s gratitude for his eight years of support.
