I am writing to express my strong support for Walla Walla's Valley Transit bus system. I cannot emphasize enough how important the public transportation system is for persons who are disadvantaged and or disabled whom are trying to find or maintain gainful employment.
Unfortunately, many people with disabilities have no other source of reliable transportation to and from work. Transportation reliability makes all employees more dependable, an important employment factor and expectation of any employer.
The loss of public transportation could set back the "employment for persons with disabilities" cause, and could potentially result in the loss of independence and employment for some individuals.
I strongly encourage our citizens to support the Valley Transit system through their vote in support of our special, silent citizens whom rely upon us to look out for their best interest.
