The Sustainable Cities Initiative, School of Journalism and Communication, and the University of Oregon Department of Architecture are proud to present the 2016 SCI Expert-in-Residence, Denny Zane. Zane has an extensive political background within California, serving as a city councilmember for 12 years in addition to his term as mayor of Santa Monica. He is currently the Executive Director of Move LA, an organization working to unite labor, business, community and students in the effort to provide adequate funding sources to develop a clean, efficient, and robust transit system for Los Angeles County. The organization facilitated the campaign for the Measure R 1⁄2 – cent sales tax for transportation on the 2008 ballot and ensured its success. Denny’s presentation will focus on communicating effectively to the general public on the need for efficient, accessible, and equitable transit opportunities.
