Gerson on Congestion Pricing
August 10th, 2007

Councilmember Alan Gerson, who said, “The plan as presented I oppose,” when commenting on our congestion pricing story , issued a statement today that says he “supports appropriate variations of congestion pricing as part of a broader traffic management plan.”

Gerson was singled out by some blog commentators after Gotham Gazette posted its story on Monday for being the only Manhattan City Council representative to take a stance against the mayor’s plan to charge cars $8 and trucks $21 to drive into or out of most of Manhattan.

His statement in full is posted on our message board here. While the councilmember said he opposed the mayor’s plan during an interview last week, he also expressed some of the other sentiments within his statement.
