Letter: Cortez should talk to CDOT

Heck, Ed Cortez, Roaring Fork Transportation Authority union head of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1774, shot off his mouth like gangbusters at the recent RFTA board meeting I attended.

I wondered what he expected the RFTA board to do about a Colorado Department of Transportation and city of Glenwood Springs problem and his panic about road rage becoming a RFTA driver problem.

Mr. Cortez is a union leader. Shouldn’t he take his worries and solutions to CDOT and the Glenwood Springs City Council and its temporary city manager?!

I’d like to see the guy have a transit union representative attending every RFTA board meeting.

Also I’d like Cortez to talk with union leaders in the region and the post office union member on the Carbondale Board of Trustees.
