METRO Chairman Saint David Wolff

NEW RAIL LINES WON'T EAT UP TRAFFIC LANES, according to METRO Chairman David Wolff who sat down for a chit-chat with the Chron's Carolyn Feibel. And there's this: "One of the differences that I think we had with Tom DeLay was that he felt that a transit system is sort of a form of welfare. I think this was unfortunate and narrow-minded, because it is not a form of welfare. [...] So I have very short patience for people who think it's a form of welfare, and therefore it's sort of a cross to bear. No, it's an important part of the city and people who don't realize that don't know cities."
