"Scandal" --Tom Hayden on the 405 Project

David Murphy

Peace, justice, and environmental activist Tom Hayden has weighed in on the 405 project, calling it a “scandal”:

The best example of the Iron Triangle [of political insiders] in its current dysfunction is the scandal of the 405 expansion project, which will run millions over budget and years past its deadlines, provide few benefits in comparison to its costs, and has been treated with shrugs and denials by virtually every candidate in this year’s election. It took a frustrated billionaire, Elon Musk of Tesla Motors, to stir any public media attention to complications with the expansion project, and only because of his zany willingness to personally hire crews to expedite the construction project.
