NPT: Ray Pearson Forum heats it up; talk light rail and mass transit options this weekend, mayor’s race coming up

It’s political season, so there are plenty of night-time and weekend public forums for candidates, newsmakers and ideas. One of the best and most consistent is the Ray Pearson Forum, hosted by Joe Oliva. Several weeks ago, the forum was host to all but one of the mayoral candidates, the first full gathering of the group. The event is taped and archived, and can be found here.

It’s every Saturday at 9 a.m. at the Pearson Law Firm, 214 W. Franklin. This weekend, the guest is David Marcus, the managing partner of Marcus, Fairall, Bristol + Co., LLP, a CPA firm, and treasurer of the Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority. He also is a member of the Texas 2030 Committee. The topic of discussion … transportation, and specifically, mass transit and light rail and other options.

On April 18, a mayoral race forum.
