Ray LaHood Wants to Hear From Streetsblog Readers

Note that LaHood had Facebook on in the background during his last video chat. (And he says he's not a hipster.)

Have a question for Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood? He’s all ears. He has been doing a series of video chats where he responds to questions from the public.

A DOT official told me they would like to “explicitly invite Streetsblog readers to submit their questions to the Secretary” for the next episode of “On the Go with Ray LaHood.”

Go ahead, give him your best shot.
