The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (Transportation) at the GOP Convention

I knew I was in trouble, Save Jerseyans, when our shuttle bus from St. Petersburg (about 30 miles from the Convention Center) took nearly an hour and a half to get to. It was a precursor of the transportation nightmare to come. I get it: 50,000 people jamming into one venue to “be there” to […]
