Have a Question for Secretary LaHood? Ask It Here.

Last spring, Ray LaHood’s office approached Streetsblog seeking reader questions for the transportation secretary’s monthly video blog series, On the Go With Ray LaHood. His aides have repeatedly told me that of all the blogs and organizations that got a similar shot, Streetsblog readers were the most engaged and asked the most insightful questions. LaHood wrote a guest post for Streetsblog to accompany the video of his answers.

So, less than a year later, the secretary is knocking at our door again, asking for your thoughts and questions. Pull no punches, people.

You can submit your questions as a comment to this post. Or you can post them on the secretary’s Facebook page, using the #q4ray hashtag on Twitter, or by leaving a comment on the Fast Lane blog. Whichever method you choose, do it by May 10, when the question period ends.

LaHood will select a few questions to answer in the video, and a few more that he’ll address in a guest blog post here.
